Skarshaug Testing Laboratory stocks Salisbury dipped and molded sleeves. Molded Sleeves are manufactured by either injection or compression molding methods and only come in solid-colors. They are more economical than the dipped option. Molded sleeves also have less of a bend at the elbow, also called a “reduced curve.” Dipped Sleeves are manufactured similar to rubber gloves. These are available in one or two-color sleeves and have a larger bend at the elbow, also called an “extra-curve.” Dipped sleeves are a lighter, more flexible option.
