Best Nylon Work Gloves

19 June 2018

Nylon, the first commercially successful synthetic thermoplastic polymer, is as popular today as it was when it was first introduced in 1935. Its high durability, excellent abrasion resistance, strength and resilience make it one of the most widely used materials for making high quality safety gloves that are used across a range of industries. What all of them have in common is the combination of mechanical resistance and superb dexterity, which makes nylon one of the most practical and versatile gloves materials on the market.
