Brass Knuckle® SmartSkin™ Nitrile Gloves Have More Protection, Grip

Brass Knuckle’s® SmartSkin™ nitrile gloves are ideal for workers who handle unpleasant substances that may make it difficult to hang on to tools. SmartSkin gloves have a thin gauge, 18 mil nylon shell with a full overcoat of nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR), which protects against chemicals, oils and most harmful cleaning solvents. A second coat of NBR on the fingers and palm has a sandy finish that helps improve grip – even when wet, and provides extra resistance to abrasions, tears and punctures in critical wear areas. That’s in addition to nitrile base, which has three times the puncture resistance of latex. SmartSkin gloves are ideal for workers in the oil and gas sector who need impermeable gloves that protect against skin exposures when working around oil operations and when transferring process fluids.
