What Do Tornado Foam Nitrile Glove Protect Against?
Designed for oily and greasy environments like automotive workshops and mechanics' yards, Tornado OLB1 Work Safety Gloves are great at guarding against:
- Scuffs and Scratches
- Light Impact
Perfect for Mechanics and Automotive Professionals
Foam nitrile is the number one coating when working with grease, grime, lubricants and oil. The technology in the coating works to "suck up" and absorb microscopic droplets of liquid that linger on the glove face, establishing a solid, strong and stable grip when working with slippery substances.

Excellent Dexterity and Grip
Tornado Olba OLB1 Gloves have been designed to combine dexterity and grip in environments where grease, oil and grime conspire to make manual handling difficult. Their foam nitrile coating provide the fingers with a sleek and slender barrier against slippery substrates to improve both comfort and performance.
Soft and Comfortable Fit
Tornado Foam Nitrile Work Gloves are constructed using a seamless lightweight nylon-blended bi-polymer coating. This sounds technical but it's actually very simple and highly effective. All it means is that the foundation fabric used to make them is kind on sensitive skin, and that the antibacterial technology used to make it reduces the chance of eczema and dermatitis flareups.
What's So Special About Foam Nitrile?
Foam nitrile is an incredibly durable and porous coating that's three times more puncture resistant than rubber. Unparalleled when working around liquids, foam nitrile prevents slips and drops by behaving like a sponge and creating a suction cup effect which leaves the user able to grip tightly onto whatever it is they're lifting.
Soft and Flexible Knit Wrist
A flexible wrist cuff is vital when you're wearing gloves for long periods and especially if your work or application involves manual handling. Fatigue, repetitive strain injury and tired wrists can come on quickly if your wrist isn't correctly supported, or if it isn't allowed to flex and move naturally.
Tornado Olba Industrial Safety Gloves cradle the wrist, allowing it to move and bend freely. This knitted wrist cuff sits snugly against the wrist, which also prevents dirt, grime, dust and debris from entering the glove.
