What are the materials of leather work gloves? What are the advantages of each?
Leather labor protection gloves are the oldest type of gloves, and are generally made of leather such as cowhide, goat skin, pigskin and lambskin. It is not easy to be damaged, has a long service life and fine processing makes leather gloves comfortable to wear, grasps objects accurately, and has the advantages of good heat resistance and insulation.
Cow head hide: Most protective gloves use head hide, mainly scraped from the ribs. Features: Soft, dexterous, comfortable Good abrasion, tear and puncture resistance.
Cow Split Leather: Most 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.
Goat leather single 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 to make gloves with simple isolation effect. Features: low price.
Lambskin single layer leather: Due to its poor abrasion 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, dexterous
