An extra layer of protection known as the coating is added to the palm side of the glove or to the entire glove to create an extra layer of protection. Depending on tasks and level of protection required, there are various types of coatings that will bring extra grip and dexterity.

HCT®’s special compounding process creates deep pockets within a durable coating. Each of these pockets are then injected with a very soft compound. This combination gives HCT® remarkable softness and exibility while remaining durable, abrasion resistance and impermeable by oils.
HCT® Nano is the 3rd generation in the HCT® family of coatings. Like its predecessors, HCT® Nano draws on the positive attributes of our revolutionary Hybrid Coating Technology (HCT®) – soft, flexible, breathable and exceptional grip in wet, dry and oily conditions. HCT® Nano though offers a much thinner and tackier coating than our standard HCT®. These two features make for a glove that offers great dexterity, tactile sensitivity and a positive grip in the toughest working conditions.
