The role of different types of safety gloves


2020-04-07


Safety protective gloves are upper limb protection articles that prevent physical, chemical and biological external factors from injuring the operator's fingers to the wrist. In the work, the hand is the part of the body that is easily injured. Therefore, protective gloves are needed to protect the wearer's hands.

Classification of protective gloves: protective gloves are divided into five-finger gloves, three-finger gloves, mittens, straight gloves, hand gloves, and finger cots according to their shapes. According to the protection function, it can be divided into anti-vibration gloves, anti-static gloves, oil-resistant gloves, insulating gloves and so on.

The role of different types of safety gloves

Anti-vibration gloves

Anti-vibration gloves are generally used in some industries that are exposed to vibration. For example, in some industries such as forestry, mining, construction, transportation and other sectors that use hand-held vibration tools, wearing anti-vibration gloves can protect the wearer's hand from vibration. The structure of anti-vibration gloves is mainly to add a certain thickness of foam plastic, latex, and air interlayer on the palm surface to absorb vibration. The thicker the pad, the more air it contains, and the better the damping effect. But when the palm and finger surface is too thick, it is easy to affect the operation.

Anti-static gloves

The anti-static gloves consist of a fabric of conductive fibers. The other is a long fiber elastic acrylic braided glove, and then the polyurethane resin is applied to the palm part. Or the polyurethane resin is applied to the fingertip part or the surface of the glove is coated with polyethylene.

Gloves containing conductive fibers quickly dissipate the static electricity accumulated on the hands. Gloves coated with polyurethane or polyethylene are mainly not prone to dust and static electricity. These products are mainly used for weak current, assembly of precision instruments, product inspection, electronics industry, printing, inspection work of various research institutions, etc.

Oil resistant gloves

These products are made of materials such as nitrile butadiene rubber, chloroprene, or polyurethane to protect the skin of the hands from various skin diseases caused by the erosion of oils and fats.

Insulated gloves

It refers to an insulating glove worn by the operator to perform electrical insulation on electrical equipment with an AC voltage of 10 kV and below. Because the electrical industry is relatively dangerous, it is required that the product type, appearance size and technical requirements of this type of gloves should meet the requirements of the "General Technical Conditions for Insulated Gloves for Live Working". Gloves must have good electrical insulation properties. It also requires good tensile strength and elongation at break, as well as puncture resistance, aging resistance, flame resistance, and low-temperature resistance.
