Lightweight Gloves

2020-12-29

Fabric and cotton gloves provide a thin barrier between the user and the materials and tools used for the application. While these lightweight gloves may offer some protection against contaminants—such as dirt or dust—and minor abrasions, they are generally not effective in guarding against cuts, punctures, burns, or strong chemicals and solvents. However, coatings, such as latex, PVC, and polyurethane, can be added to allow for minor to moderate resistance to these potential hazards.

In some cases, these gloves are also used as liners beneath more durable or effective gloves to provide better protection against low temperatures.
