As I have previously discussed, the Coated Work Glove category continues to expand for very good reasons. You can check my previous posts so I won’t belabor that issue in this particular post.
This week, we added another new glove to the coated work glove category and this one is a new Thin Cut Resistant model. The coated cut resistant line-up continues to expand for obvious reasons. Their durable, light-weight, offer high dexterity which adds to the safety aspect, and the pricing is becoming very reasonable.
See the new G-Tek Polykor X7 seamless knit with a double dip full nitrile coating and micro-surface grip. Model 16-939. Our listing WK-CC939.
The Polykor blended shell is a proprietary cut resistant fiber that was invented by the PIP group to circumvent the more expensive branded cut resistant fibers which reduces the costs but not the cut resistant performance.
An interesting aspect to me is that the shell is an 18 gauge seamless knit which makes them even thinner than the typical 13 or 15 gauge knits. I doubt many will notice this at first, but this represents a major accomplishment when considering this model is cut resistant as well.
They are double dipped with a full coating to maintain dry hands in any wet or oily environment.
The Nitrile coating, as most know, is one of the most durable and chemical resistant and the micro surface provides outstanding grip by acting as tiny suction cups.
The other attributes are that they are washable, and resistant to chemicals, water, and UV light.
They are ANSI Cut Level A3 with an EN388 Rating of 4X42C.
