Choosing the Right Disposable Glove - Grainger KnowHow
Glove material thickness is usually measured in mils (1 mil = 0.001” gauge). Disposable gloves generally range from 4-8 mils thick. Lower-gauge gloves allow better dexterity, flexibility and sense of touch. Higher-gauge gloves provide better durability, but less flexibility. Surface treatment affects a glove’s grip level.
