Tilman continues to grow their ANSI rated glove offerings with the launch of the 1766 glove, a lightweight abrasion resistant 15-guage nylon glove with a nitrile micro-foam palm for outstanding abrasion resistance and dexterity. “One of the challenges we face with the 1766 glove is protecting hands with the required abrasion resistance while making sure it’s comfortable enough for users to wear throughout the day," said Jeff Shipley Director of Marketing. “Tillman’s 1766 glove provides ANSI Level 4 Abrasion Resistance while offering the dexterity needed to handle the smallest of components for all-day use.”

The 1766 offers a lightweight 15-guage seamless knit nylon shell with a non-coated, open back for added comfort, protection and breathability. The durable, hard-wearing nitrile micro-foam coating absorbs oils for outstanding gripping power and excellent abrasion resistance. 

Features of the 1766 glove include:

  • Nitrile micro-foam palm and fingers which is softer than standard nitrile delivering a superior grip on wet, dry or oily surfaces. 
  • Outstanding dexterity and a great sense of tactile touch for a comfortable wearing experience throughout the day.
  • ANSI Level 4 Abrasion Resistance with EN 388 Level 1 Cut Resistance for added worker confidence. 

The Tillman 1766 is available in five sizes, S-2XL, with colored cuffs for easy size identification and are ideal for many industries including manufacturing, construction, maintenance, municipal services and automotive repair.
