Safeopedia explains Polyurethane
When it comes to PPE, polyurethane is used as a coating on work gloves. As a stretchable material, it provides a lot of flexibility while still offering cut-resistance.
In addition to cuts, polyurethane also protects hands from various chemicals, oils, and other liquid hazards.
It also improves grip, making it excellent for applications that require a lot of gripping and carrying, such as moving panes of glass.
Because it's hypoallergenic, it doesn't cause allergic reactions the way other glove materials, like latex, might.
