HOW DOES IT WORK? Firstly, the microporous nitrile coating in 381 and 382 grants exceptional

grip while allowing warm air and moisture from inside to escape, thus

maintaining your hands dry.

Secondly, the microfibre liner absorbs perspiration and

moisture quickly. Due to cohesive properties of water, the

water molecules are pulled along the thin fibres of the

microfibre material. The large surface area created by

numerous fibres allows microfibre materials to hold over 6

times their weight in liquid. At the same time the larger surface

area and heat from the hand trigger faster evaporation, where

drying time is 20% shorter than our standard glove. This results in

cooler and dryer hands.

TAKE COMFORT AND PROTECTION TO THE NEXT LEVEL Professionals need optimized grip and maximum comfort when performing tasks that require extended wear and durability while keeping hands dry and cool at the same time. For workers who move between tasks from general handling to intricate

assembly, requiring high abrasion performance, dexterity,

finger sensitivity and comfort, SHOWA 381 and 382 are the ideal multipurpose solutions. They are the lightest

SHOWA microporous nitrile coated gloves supported by

a microfibre liner with an abrasion resistance of level 4.

Only fibres smaller than 1 denier can be called microfibres.

The microfibre is 0.52 dennier thick and the gloves weigh

only 19 grams each. Their comfort is further enhanced as

breathability and moisture evaporation has increased by

20% compared to our standard offering.

Microfibre fabric is widely used in the clothing industry because of its absorption property.

Athletes often use microfibre clothing, such as cycling jerseys, to improve their performances

during competitions, as it provides a high capacity to absorb sweat while avoiding irritation.
