Why double dip? Usually because you want more of something good. In the case of Brass Knuckle SmartSkin nitrile gloves (BKNITR2), double-dipping them in nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR) gives wearers twice the protection and twice the grip. Nitrile stands up to chemicals, oils, most harmful cleaning solvents, and resists bodily fluids and waste. If you have to work in unpleasant substances and it’s vital that you hang onto your tools, SmartSkin is the right choice.
SmartSkin starts with a thin gauge, 18 mil nylon shell with a full NBR over coat. Then a second coat of NBR is added to full fingers and palm. This coat has a sandy finish that’s extra grippy, even when wet. In addition to added grip, the second coat provides extra resistance against abrasions, tears, and punctures in critical wear areas. Additionally, nitrile has three times the puncture resistance of latex.
SmartSkin gloves are also the barrier of choice for workers in the oil and gas sector. These workers need impermeable gloves that protect against skin exposures when working around any oil operations and when transferring process fluids. Durable nitrile is ideal protection for these applications and more.
An estimated six out of every 100 professional janitors suffers chemical-related injuries. These injuries include burns to the skin caused by harmful chemicals found in cleaners. These same workers require protection from bloodborne pathogens, germs, and good-old-fashion yuck.
When you really don’t want to touch it, but your job says you have to, SmartSkin bears the brunt for you. It protects your skin, and makes it easier to grip tools.
