October 8, 2013 – 3M is offering a new line of hand protection; designed with electricians and contractors in mind, says the company, the 3M Comfort Grip and Gripping Material work gloves provide physical protection from cuts, punctures and abrasions while increasing dexterity and grip.
The challenge for many electricians and contractors, says 3M, is finding hand protection that offers the dexterity they need as well as mechanical protection to keep them safe. The General Use Comfort Grip gloves are ideal for light- to medium-duty jobs that require precision handling. The nitrile palm coating provides grip even in wet or oily conditions, and ensures flexibility and abrasion resistance.
The Cut-Resistant Comfort Grip gloves are for jobs that require handling abrasive or sharp materials (e.g. cable preparation or wire handling). The Gripping Material Work Glove helps users get a better grip on the job: comprising thousands of micro fingers, the 3M Gripping Material sewn on these gloves provides grip in dirty, wet or oily conditions. Durable synthetic suede, combined with padded fingers and thumbs adds protection, make them suitable for heavy-duty jobs in factories or on construction sites.
