How Grippy are the Matrix F Grip Gloves?
They are designed to be extremely grippy, even in slippery environments where oil, grease and light water may have contaminated materials. Their nitrile palm is coarse to the touch, which allows you to grip small and tricky items such as tools and machinery. Despite this coarse material the gloves are still highly flexible, dexterous and sensitive and at times it's so easy to pick up items, it is as if you aren't wearing gloves at all.

Will the Matrix F Grip Gloves Protect My Hands?
For many industries where these gloves are suitable, it's important to know to what extent they will protect your hands. Thankfully, they are designed to meet EN standard 388 (mechanical risks), meaning that they'll provide protection against a range of mechanical risks. The scores that they achieved are:
|Hazard ||Resistance Level |
|Abrasion Resistance ||Level 4 |
|Cut Resistance ||Level 1 |
|Tear Resistance ||Level 2 |
|Puncture Resistance ||Level 1 |
What Does an EN 388 Score of 4121 Actually Mean?
If you're a bit baffled by these scores, we'll explain here quite simply what they actually mean. They offer exceptional abrasion resistance. Level 4 is the highest level available which should mean that these gloves will not be phased by wear, tear, knocks and scrapes while also protecting your hands against these kind of threats too.
They offer the lowest score available for cuts and punctures. This means that they aren't recommended for using with sharp items such as knives, glass and blades, so if you are looking for some super cut-resistant gloves, we would recommend you head over to our Cut-Resistant Gloves category. Finally their tear resistance of Level 2 is pretty good, and it'll take a pretty tough tear for the gloves to start to give way.
Will I Still be Able to Handle Tools, Machinery and Complete Tactile Tasks?
The high level of flexibility and sensitivity that is provided with the gloves is ideal for completing tactile tasks. When you wear the gloves they fit tight and snug around the hand, but still provide an exceptional level of flexibility that isn't too much lower than that of an ordinary hand. This is ideal for handling tools and gripping machinery in high risk situations.
How Versatile are the Matrix F Grip Gloves?
A key plus of the Matrix F Grip Gloves is their versatility, as they are well suited to a variety of different environments, conditions and applications. Types of environments, conditions and uses where these gloves would prove beneficial include:
- Light oil
- Light grease
- Light water
- Dirty environments
- Yard environments
- Garden environments
Can I Use Them as a Glove Liner?
Speaking of versatility, these gloves don't have to be used on their own. If you so wish, you can use the gloves as an underliner to some chemical or oil resistant disposable gloves, or wear them over the top of other gloves for additional warmth and resistance.
Will the Matrix F Grip Gloves Protect my Hands Against Oil?
If you're a mechanic or engineer, or work in the automotive industry then you'll be used to working with oil. These gloves will withstand a light amount of oil because of their tough nitrile coating on the palm. You should still retain your grip, meaning that the chances of dropping tools, equipment and parts are reduced.
It is recommended that as long as you clean any debris and oil from the gloves before using again, then the gloves should last far longer. For washing instructions please see the washing heading below.
How Comfortable are the Matrix F Grip Gloves?
The Matrix F Grip Gloves are quite snug and tight, but this isn't a bad thing as their sensitivity and flexibility works in your favour. They fit close around the hand but because they can stretch with the natural movement of your hands it means that they aren't uncomfortable to wear. In fact, their lightweight and flexible design is perfect for extended use as it will reduce hand fatigue.
How Light are the Polyco F Grip Gloves?
The Polyco F Grip Gloves are incredibly light considering the impressive protection and resistance that they offer. Their light enough that you can go about your tasks without being weighed down, and you may just forget you're wearing gloves at all!
How Sensitive Will The Polyco Grip Gloves Feel on My Hands?
For precision and tactile handling and applications, being able to feel exactly what you are holding can make your job a lot easier and safer while making you significantly more productive. The Polyco F Grip Gloves are very sensitive, with their thin design promising to give you a lot more feeling in your fingers. This reduces the chances of dropping materials and goods, while ensuring that you can handle and grip tools more effectively and accurately.
Will the Polyco F Grip Gloves Protect my Wrists?
They are designed with a knitwrist that extends five centimetres from the base of the glove, meaning that your wrist is protected from knocks, scrapes, water and oil. Another benefit of this tight knitwrist is that it works to prevent outside contaminants from entering the glove, helping to keep you safe and improve hygiene.
