Whether it be for safety, grip, or warmth, gloves are as much a part of a working outfit as trousers or jackets. Caterpillar has a pair of gloves for many different working situations, from specialising in being dexterous in wet conditions to those with breathable knits that let moisture from within the glove get out whilst you are wearing them. For those tasks that need maximum precision, Caterpillar fingerless gloves come in, keeping you warm but not hindering your ability to do your job in any way.
CAT Gloves and their materials
As with most of their other workwear ranges, Caterpillar utilises a variety of different materials to make their gloves based on the specific task that each pair has been made for. For example, the Caterpillar Jersey dotted gloves have, as the name suggests, been dotted with PVC on the palm. This allows for an enhanced grip and more precise handling when using these gloves.
Another example of Caterpillar’s specific choice of glove material is nitrile. Caterpillar has work gloves that they have coated in nitrile foam around the palm and fingers, which makes those parts of the gloves resistant to typical cuts, abrasions, punctures, and even some solvents like grease, oil, and fat. By wearing gloves made of materials such as these, your hands are, of course, kept far more safe on the worksite.
The full range of materials CAT Apparel use in their gloves includes even more than this, such as using latex, nylon, and cotton across the range. Take a look through the collection to see all the materials and features.
Cat Neoprene Comfort Gloves
One of Caterpillar’s top sellers are the Cat Neoprene Comfort Gloves. They are made out of a fantastic combination of materials and features which make them well-suited to most workplace environments. Proudly displaying the CAT logo, the backs of these gloves are made from Neoprene, which is a highly flexible, synthetic rubber. Neoprene has natural resistances to certain acids, as well as UV radiation and harsh weather, making it well-suited to be part of gloves that are used outdoors or involves work with chemicals.
Furthermore, the Neoprene comfort gloves feature discrete hi-visibility reflective detailing, to help you stay seen when working in low light conditions, such as at night or in poor weather.
To ensure these gloves have the best fit and freedom of movement as possible, the fingers have actually been pre-bent, so you won’t have to break them in. Specific fingers have been given special treatment depending on what they are likely to be used for. The thumb has been reinforced as, chances are, it will be a key factor in the task at hand, and needs to be protected as a key area of wear. Second to the thumb are the index and middle fingers, which have been coated in silicone for extra grip.
The palm on this glove is made from padded clarino synthetic leather and brings the durability, water resistance, and warmth of real leather to these gloves. In addition, synthetic leather is lighter, thinner, and dries quicker than its counterpart. Given how crucial the palm is, being made of such a material certainly goes a long way to making this pair of Caterpillar leather work gloves a top choice for many.
