The latex coating's raised crinkle finish gives the glove an excellent grip in both dry and wet conditions. The secure grip also helps to protect workers' hands against accidental cuts. The glove's unique former and dipping process ensures that the coating covers the thumb, in addition to the palm. This provides the increased protection that's needed in applications that are associated with higher risks of injury. The coating on the thumb also reduces dirt and moisture penetration, helping to keep the glove clean longer and extending glove life. The continuous cuff provides additional protection plus a secure hold on the wrist.
