What Use Are Finger Cots?

What are finger cots? Simply stated, finger cots are gloves that cover the tips of the fingers in situations where a full glove is not needed. Most often rolled for easy donning, finger cots or finger gloves are usually made of a nitrile or latex material. They can cover one or two knuckles. If you’ve ever wondered what you would ever use finger cots for, the pros at Total Source Manufacturing can tell you in 4 easy ways.

To Cover Wounds

Employees with fingertip bandages or wounds on the fingers can use a finger cot to cover the wound and prevent the transmission of microorganisms. It can also provide extra protection for the sore finger.

To Protect Fingers

When working with sharp corners or abrasive surfaces, finger cots can protect the fingers from cuts, scrapes, scratches or wounds. They also provide relief from stress injuries from repetitive movements.

To Prevent Contamination

Oils, skin flakes, particulates and dirt transmissions are all cut down or eliminated with the use of finger cots. In sensitive environments, these small covers really pack a punch.

To Provide Static Dissipation

Special static dissipative finger cots are able to keep static buildup from sensitive cleanrooms. They are made to meet cleanroom standards.
