Understanding PU Glove Coatings

Polyurethane (PU) is often considered the ideal coating for cut resistant gloves thanks to its soft and stretchy properties that still provide good puncture resistance without being too bulky.PU is durable and flexible, making it an excellent coating for general sharp handling and assembly across multiple industries such as manufacturing, aerospace and precision assembly.

PU coating gloves tend to have higher penetration levels into the knit liner as a downside and this can cause issues with skin sensitivity. PU is also a non-breathable coating so is often used as finger or palm dip style to reduce perspiration inside the gloves.
