Brass Knuckle SmartSkin nitrile gloves are double-dipped in nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR), which 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.
SmartSkin gloves are 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.
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 – and this coat has a sandy finish that’s extra grippy, even when wet. In addition to added grip, the second coat provides extra resistance to abrasions, tears, and punctures in critical wear areas (nitrile has three times the puncture resistance of latex).
