When working with lubricants, such as oils and greases, it is important to wear safety gloves that not only protect against oil spilling but also allow you to maintain a good grip. Oil and grease are present in a variety of industries, so oil-resistant gloves might be essential for your workplace.
Lubricants can pose various hazards. Prolonged exposure to certain lubricants might result in a variety of skin issues. Contact with hot oils may lead to burns. Plus, when spilt on floors, materials or any other surfaces, oil and grease spills might lead to fire, fall and slippage hazards.
As a distributor for Superior Glove in the UK and Ireland, Dawnthrive Ltd supplies a variety of safety gloves by Superior Glove, including Oilbloc™ gloves, top-performing safety work gloves that provide high oil resistance. However, what makes Oilbloc™ gloves top-performing gloves and different from the competition?
What is Oilbloc™?
Oilbloc™ is a treatment applied to gloves during the tanning process. This makes the oil-resistant treatment part of the glove itself as opposed to other oil-resistant treatments, usually in spray form, that are applied to gloves at the end of the manufacturing process.
What are the benefits of Oilbloc™ gloves?
Oilbloc™ gloves offer better protection against oil and increased grip in oily environments. According to Superior Glove’s internal grip tests, gloves treated with Oilbloc™ deliver 34% more grip force in oily conditions than competitive gloves. Plus, Oilbloc™ gloves are also resistant to water penetration.
