How Oil Resistant Are the MaxiFoam Gloves?
The nitrile coating on the MaxiFoam gloves is designed to channel oil away from the surface, preventing the substance from absorbing into the glove. This covers the palms, knuckles and backs of the hands to keep them clean while ensuring users have total control over the tools and objects they handle. However, it is recommended that users avoid allowing the wrists of the gloves to come into contact with oils as they are uncoated and will not offer the same level of resistance.
How Do the MaxiFoam Gloves Protect Your Hands?
The MaxiFoam Gloves don't just protect against oil; they also offer protection against mechanical risks including cuts and abrasions. The extent to which they protect against such risks can be proven by their EN 388 scores. Following relevant EN 388 tests, the MaxiFoam Gloves attained the following ratings:
|Hazard ||Level of Resistance |
|Abrasion Resistance ||Level 4 |
|Cut Resistance ||Level 1 |
|Tear Resistance ||Level 2 |
|Puncture Resistance ||Level 1 |
|Blade Cut Resistance ||Level A |
What Does This Mean?
The MaxiFoam Gloves have Level 4 abrasion resistance, the highest level protective gloves can achieve in this category. As a result, they offer outstanding protection against rough or coarse materials and are able to resist damage caused by scratches for better longevity.
How Much Grip Will These Gloves Provide in Oily Conditions?
When working in oily or greasy conditions, it's vital that gloves are able to facilitate a strong grip. To guarantee this, the MaxiFoam Gloves are partially coated in foam nitrile which repels oils away from the palm. Not only does this protect the section of the glove most likely to come into contact with oily surfaces, it also enables controlled handling in dry or slippery environments.
How Flexible Are the MaxiFoam Gloves?
The MaxiFoam Gloves are made with an incredibly flexible 15g nylon liner that is designed to stretch with the natural movement of the hand. The nitrile foam coating is light enough to resist oil and mechanical risks without impeding dexterity, so users can retain as much hand control as possible.
How Do The MaxiFoam Gloves Protect Your Wrists?
In dirty conditions, debris and irritants can sometimes slip into work gloves through their wrists. To ensure this does not happen, the cuffs on the MaxiFoam Gloves fit snugly against the wrists. This also stops the gloves from riding up the hands for consistent protection, control and comfort.
How Comfortable Are The MaxiFoam Gloves?
Featuring a seamless knitted liner that bends easily with the hand and fingers, the MaxiFoam gloves offer high levels of comfort and flexibility. Minimal strikethrough also ensures the main component in contact with the hands is the nylon liner. This keeps the gloves well-ventilated for cool, dry hands and prevents any irritation caused by contact with the nitrile coating.
