What are the best grip gloves? The best grip gloves vary based on the type of work performed and the specific grip requirements of the task. Those who work in wet conditions all day will require a different glove from those working around oily surfaces, slippery wet areas, or in dry conditions.

Finding the right work glove is crucial for ensuring one's safety on the job and carrying out one's work activities. A good grip allows workers to securely handle tools and equipment, reducing the risk of accidents and improving overall efficiency. A work glove with poor grip, on the other hand, can lead to hand fatigue, decreased productivity, and increased chances of accidents. With so much depending on the grip of a work glove, choosing a pair that provides a secure and comfortable hold is essential.

All three gloves shown above are known for increasing grip and allowing one to maintain the highest level of hand movement.

When encountering rough working conditions, workers demand the highest quality protection. This quality level significantly affects a wearer’s work experience, personal safety, and all-day comfort. Even beyond these factors, high-quality PPE ultimately drives employee performance and productivity and helps reduce injuries. For all the features of premium quality gloves, gripping power is one of the most important to consider. This article dives into all the gloves workers wear from MCR Safety's product lineup to help them perform their best and boost grip. Below is a breakdown of the top gripping properties one should consider.

Best Grip – MaxGrid™ Fabric

Another example of D3O® technology is the FF2930 - MCR Safety® Forceflex®. This technology's gloves offer superior grip in wet, dry, or oily conditions. The FF2930 is the go-to choice for working in multiple work settings. Here is a general breakdown of palm materials used for gripping in various working conditions:

Work Gloves With Silicone Grip

When you add silicone grip to gloves, you automatically upgrade it to the best drip grip glove possible. This is because silicone has low surface energy, meaning it doesn’t easily adhere to other materials. Additionally, silicone has the unique property of being hydrophobic (water-repelling), which helps prevent liquids from penetrating the glove's surface, further enhancing its grip. It's a feature that makes silicone gloves ideal for handling slippery objects.

MCR Safety Cut Pro™ 92737 offers a cut-resistant option that is comfortable and easy to wear but also features a seamless 13-gauge HyperMax™ shell with a durable clear silicone-coated palm and fingertips.The silicone palm provides excellent abrasion and superior gripping power, making it a great choice for tough jobs.

962 features a silicone grip added to rough Kevlar, ensuring excellent grip and the highest-rated abrasion score possible.

In addition to its grip-enhancing properties, silicone is naturally antimicrobial and hypoallergenic, making it an excellent choice for those looking for the best cut-resistant gloves.

Thin Gloves with Grip

Thin gloves with grip are an excellent option for tasks that require a high degree of dexterity, as they are lightweight and flexible, allowing for easy movement of the fingers and hands. This makes them ideal for tasks that require precision and control, such as electrical work, inspection, and assembly. Thin gloves with grip often feature a textured surface, such as dots or raised patterns, which provide a secure grip for handling tools and equipment. Whether you’re working in an industrial setting or need a pair of gloves for delicate motor tasks, thin gloves with a grip can help you get the job done safely and efficiently.

Polyurethane is an incredibly resilient, flexible, and durable polymer. Users will find an incredible sense of touch when utilizing a PU-dipped glove and high abrasion resistance. The N9696 Ninja Lite is a featherweight PU option many utilize for all-day comfort and precise gripping. The 92718PU is featherweight, while also providing cut protection properties. 

Available in various blends and styles, latex's elasticity and flexible nature provide remarkable gripping power. Crinkle-dipped and textured latex styles provide additional grip resistance for handling sharp edges and abrasive materials such as concrete blocks. MCR Safety’s Ninja Flex N9680 and 9680 are high-performance gloves with excellent dexterity, flexibility, and grip for wet or dry conditions.

Nitrile

A great alternative to latex, those made with nitrile have a considerable advantage for abrasion resistance and comfortability. A nitrile coating resists water, oils, and other chemicals, making it great for gripping in many environments. One example of a revolutionary nitrile coating is found in breathable nitrile foam (BNF). MCR Safety offers different gloves made with BNF, such as the N96797 Ninja® BNF and the Featherweight N96970 option.

Cold Grip

For work in cold environments, gloves with a special cold-resistant coating can provide a secure grip, even in low temperatures. Think of those who require freezer gloves with grip, which must often feature a textured surface to help grip.  Gloves like the N9690- Ninja® HPT use Hydropellent Technology (HPT), providing advanced protection against moisture. HPT coating creates encapsulated air molecules, which repel liquids for an unprecedented firm wet or dry grip.
