What are the types of leather gloves
Leather gloves are the oldest kind of gloves known to people, the first layer of cowhide, goat skin, pigskin and sheepskin, gloves are made of these leathers, and are not easy to be damaged, long service life and fine The processing makes the leather gloves comfortable to wear and grasps objects accurately. In addition, the leather gloves also have the advantages of good heat resistance and insulation properties.
Top layer of skin:
The outermost layer of leather is taken from the epidermis of the leather, which does not require any mechanical processing and trimming.
Advantages of top gloves: dexterous operation, comfortable and precise grip.
Second layer leather:
The inner layer of leather is obtained by splitting or removing the outer layer of genuine leather.
Advantages of two-layer leather gloves: wear-resistant, suitable for heavy and heavy manual labor.
Types of leather and its advantages:
Cow head leather: Most protective gloves use cow head skin, which is mainly scraped from the ribs. Features: Soft, dexterous, comfortable Good abrasion, tear and puncture resistance.
Cow split leather: Most of the gloves made of split leather are used for handling and heat protection. Usually, the two-layer skin on the back of the cow is selected, and the shoulder part is less selected. The quality of the two-layer skin on the rib is not good, so it is rarely used. Features: The cost is lower than that of the cow head skin, and the wear resistance is excellent.
Single leather layer: Its ordinary thickness cannot pull out two layers of leather, and its advantage is that it is lighter than cowhide. Since it uses its original thickness, it is suitable for gloves with better mechanical resistance. Because the fibers are not cut, its wear resistance and puncture resistance are enhanced. If it is mixed, it will have a better contact effect. Features: soft, dexterous, good wear resistance, tear resistance, puncture resistance. Its wear resistance depends on the thickness of the leather, and the thickness usually used is 1.1-1.3MM (better mechanical properties) or 0.6-1.0MM (better flexibility and dexterity).
Pig head skin and second skin: Most of them are concentrated in Asian countries. Because of their poor mechanical resistance and poor dexterity after mixing, they are used for simple isolation gloves. Features: low price.
Single-layer leather: Due to its poor wear and tear resistance, it is usually only used to make ordinary gloves. The thickness of lambskin is proportional to its dexterity. The thinner it is, the more dexterous and comfortable it is to wear. Features: Soft and dexterous.
