They are designed to offer 360 degree breathability, with their liner being 35% thinner than any traditional foam glove available on the market. This enables the hands to stay cooler, while the patented micro-foam nitrile coating ensures that these gloves are the most breathable gloves on the market available. This level of breathability promises to keep the hands cool even in warm conditions over summer.

How Is Technology Used to Enhance Performance?
Technology is used at the very heart of the making of these gloves, helping to maximise breathability, grip and more. Key technological features include:
- AirTech technology platform: Even more efficient breathability. The heat from your hand travels quicker through the breathable surface due to it being 35% thinner than any other traditional foam gloves, enabling it to breathe 40% more efficiently than similar gloves
- Full 360° breathability: The patented micro-foam nitrile coating offers 360° breathability, making it the most breathable glove on the market today
- ErgoTech technology platform: 30% thinner than traditional foam nitrile gloves on the market whilst offering similar mechanical performance to traditional foam nitrile gloves
- GRIPTech: A micro-cup finish that is designed to offer exceptional grip even when handling slippery and smooth materials
How Much Grip Do the MaxiFlex Gloves Provide?
The MaxiFlex Gloves feature a micro-foam coating that works to enhance grip while you are wearing the gloves. This roughened palm texture makes handling items a little bit easier, as it is harder for the material that you are handling to slip from your hands. This impressive level of grip is vital during assembly and handling tasks, where dropping items can waste time and money.
How Durable Are the MaxiFlex Elite Palm-Coated Gloves?
Handling materials all day requires a certain level of durability, firstly because of the consistent use that the gloves will have to uphold, and secondly because you might have to handle rough and coarse materials that can damage the gloves. The MaxiFlex Elite Handling Gloves offer level 4 abrasion resistance, meaning that they will stay in good quality despite handling abrasive materials. This helps to give you peace of mind that you can continue to use the gloves without worry that they will start to break during use.
