Nylon Glove Applications
The most common types of lightweight nylon work gloves are inspectors’ gloves and polyurethane or Nitrile dipped work gloves. Nylon gloves have replaced other types of general -purpose gloves – like leather palm or cotton gloves. These lightweight work gloves are ideal for precise and delicate work that still requires protection such as electronics operations, laboratory work, semiconductors, pharmaceuticals, and other precise work.
Operations such as these often require total cleanliness and no fingerprint contamination, for which nylon gloves are well suited, since they are low lint and more durable than cotton string-knit gloves. These characteristics make nylon work gloves ideal for cleaning, small item handling and assemble, instrument parts, and other work where fingerprint contamination is an issue.
The most common nylon work gloves are white inspectors gloves, as their low-linting quality makes them ideal for inspections. Their white color makes contaminants easily visible upon inspection. Black and gray nylon work gloves hide dirt and provide some durability to extend use, while nitrile or polyurethane dips provide better grip in oily environments.
