Contact Heat Protection
Kevlar Aramid Fibre Heat Resistant Gloves allow you to grip, hold and carry material with a temperature not exceeding 100°C for an impressive fifteen seconds. This allows foundry workers, blacksmiths and machinists to fix, adjust, handle and transfer highly volatile material without worrying about heat perforation and fabric damage.
Incredible Cut Resistance
Level E is the second highest rating available under EN 388. It means that a sharp implement would have to generate in excess of 22 newtons of force to rip through the tested fabric. This rating is the difference between a knife, blade, machine part or piece of metal tearing through your glove and your hand and it being jammed in the outer shell fabric of your glove.
Reinforced Thumb Crotch
The thumb crotch is the area of the glove that protects the webbing between your thumb and your first finger, and it's the site of many injuries resulting from handling sharp blades. The reinforced thumb crotch of the Cut Level E gloves ensures that this normally vulnerable area of your hand is provided with additional protection.
Soft Knitted Construction
Despite the hardy protective fibres used in the Kevlar aramid fibre gloves, they have been knitted in such a way that they remain soft, comfortable and breathable. This is particularly useful during long shifts, as the structure of the knitting ensures your hands wont overheat and become sweaty.
