3M has announced the introduction of work gloves made with 3M™ Gripping Material. They are suitable for anyone who needs a better grip, especially in wet or oily conditions. Incorporated into the work gloves, the gripping material comprises thousands of microfingers to help improve traction and hold onto many tools and pieces of equipment.
The gloves can be used alone or as a two-part system that mates the gloves with tools or pieces of equipment wrapped with tape made from the gripping material. According to the manufacturer, the gloves provide up to a 270 percent improvement in friction when used as a two-part system. The gloves also are resistant to abrasion and punctures.
