HOW DOES IT WORK? In the first place, the microporous nitrile coating in 381 grants

exceptional grip while allowing warm air and moisture from inside

to escape, thus maintaining your hands dry.

In the second place, 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 is the ideal multipurpose solution. It provides the lightest SHOWA microporous nitrile coated glove

supported by a microfibre liner with an abrasion resistance of level

4. Only fibres smaller than 1 denier can be called microfibres. The 381

microfibre is 0.52 dennier thick and the whole glove weighs only 19

grams. It s comfort is further enhanced as breathability and moisture

evaporation has increased by 20% compared to our standard

offering. SHOWA

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.
