Tough TPR Protection Where You Need It
These Skytec Gloves feature really dense patches of thermoplastic rubber (TPR) on the knuckles, fingers, thumb and back of the hand. They're specially moulded to each part of the hand for some seriously specialised impact resistance.
Fantastic Mechanical Resistance
On top of their impact protection, the Skytec Torq Gloves are highly resistant to abrasion, cut and tear, making them fantastically versatile safety gloves, suitable for a wide range of dangerous jobs.
Ergonomic Design for Comfort and Dexterity
With such a protective design, you might be thinking that the Torq gloves are uncomfortable or unsuitable for jobs that require finesse. However, the strategic placement of TPR padding as well as the thin, and flexible 13 gauge lining help to reduce fatigue and leave your hands dextrous enough for technical jobs.
Double Nitrile Coating for a Safe Grip in Wet and Oily Conditions
The palm coating of these Torq Twister Safety Gloves is double-dipped sandy nitrile foam that gives you a safe and secure grip on your tools or whatever you're working with. The use of two layers, along with the striated texture, make them great for work in wet and oily conditions.
