Shield GI/F12 Green Heavy-Duty Industrial Nitrile Gloves
The Shield GI/F12 Green Heavy-Duty Industrial Nitrile Gloves are high-quality abrasion-resistant gloves designed for high-risk and heavy-duty applications. Manufactured from tough but flexible nitrile material, with a hand-specific design and cotton flocklining, the GI/F12 Gloves provide durable yet comfortable hand protection.
Manufactured from acrylonitrile butadiene, the GI/F12 Gloves are tough and durable, with an EN388 rating of 4 for abrasion resistance. The GI/F12 Gloves are impenetrable to oils and a number of solvents, detergents and other chemicals, and their long cuff enhances user safety by shielding the forearms from splashback.
The GI/F12 Gloves have a cotton flocklining to increase user comfort and reduce hand perspiration. Their hand-specific design effectively reduces fatigue during long periods, making these gloves ideal for tasks where hand protection is required for an extended amount of time.
Textured for Better Grip
The GI/F12 Gloves are textured on the palm and fingers to enhance grip. This allows the user to hold onto materials and implements and manoeuvre them with greater ease. This is particularly useful for tasks that demand a tight grip and/or precise hand movements.
The GI/F12 Gloves are packaged in pairs, with each individual pair sealed in a pouch. This prevents damage to the gloves prior to use and promotes better hygiene.
IDEAL FOR COLOUR-CODING
The GI/F12 Nitrile Gloves are bright green in colour, making them ideal for environments where colour-coding is used to reduce contamination. This could include use in laboratories, pharmacies and environments where steps need to be taken to prevent the spread of disease.
