Great grip even through grease...
Oil-Teq 1 is designed for delicate handling tasks in areas where oil and liquid are present. Car garages and engineering workshops use this glove regularly. The double layer bi-polymer coating prevents unhelpful greasy penetration and provides reliable grip.
In 2018 we made some major improvements to our existing Oil-Teq range by looking closely at the coating, the yarn and the construction.
After several months of experimentation, it was possible to improve the formula and create a softer, more supple two-layer bi-polymer coating. This new formulation makes the glove far more flexible which vastly increases dexterity and comfort. Wet grip is also considerably maximised with no detriment to the gloves’ oil and water repellent qualities.
Increased flexibility in the coating is matched by increased elasticity in the yarn. We’ve developed a yarn that will expand and contract to a greater extent to allow the knitted fabric of the glove to become far more elastic. This new elasticity is intensified in the cuff where new construction allows even more stretch. The result is a huge improvement in the comfort of the glove, hand agility, general fit and the way the glove feels when you’re wearing it.
When comparing the new Oil-Teq 1 with its predecessor, you will notice that the fully coated option and the ¾ coated option have been superseded by just one glove.
We commissioned a research project to monitor use of both the original gloves in industry sectors where they're most commonly used. It became apparent that a breathable section at the back of the hand was more desirable than a fully coated glove. The new glove includes a breathable section, slightly less than the original ¾ coated glove yet far more than the fully coated option. Hence we’ve created a hybrid of the two original gloves to achieve the best of both worlds!
