GO Gloves is proud to introduce the “newest” and “thinnest” Cut Resistant Coated Work Gloves available with Touch Screen compatibility.
This is worthwhile reading regarding cut resistant work gloves.
Everyone knows the old colloquial phrase – “Thin is in”. However, this is almost an understatement when it comes to these new thin cut resistant gloves introduced by G-Tek. These gloves offer unparalleled dexterity and deliver ultra lightweight 360° high (Level A5) cut protection.
These new gloves are referred to as the:
Let me give you a little perspective and background on cut resistant gloves for those that may not be familiar with the new 21 Gauge thickness. This is the unique and breakthrough feature in cut resistant glove technology. This is like bare-hands, and they feel like wearing a thin disposable healthcare glove.
For example, going back to the 80’s and early 90’s gloves made with Kevlar fibers was the standard since it provided cut resistance and heat resistance. However, Kevlar was a thick heavy denier dense fiber, and the gloves were a thick 7 gauge and 10 gauge. Some of these models are still made and sold today since thicker gloves are often required in higher heat operations that also require cut resistance. We still sell many of these popular Kevlar gloves. As a footnote, today there are some blends of Kevlar in thinner versions, but the cut resistance is not as high as many thinner, newer cut resistant gloves.
Eventually, with advancements in fiber technology, the industry began to see new cut resistant 13-gauge gloves and recently some newer 15-gauge models which are very thin and becoming very popular.
Now, with the introduction of these new 21-gauge ultra-thin cut resistant models, they will begin to alter and lead to a new demand in cut resistant gloves. This is my prediction once users learn about these gloves and purchase a few pair.
The additional and most important aspect and feature of these new gloves is that they offer an astonishing ANSI/ISEA 105-2016 Level A5 Cut Protection. To put this level of cut protection in perspective, most thin coated cut resistant gloves test in with a cut resistance around A3 which is also nice but obviously A5 is much better and preferred. Normally, A5 cut resistant gloves or higher are only offered in heavier and much thicker cut resistant work gloves.
The proprietary fiber is an HPPE fiber (High Performance Polyethylene) is a thermoplastic polyethylene-based fiber.
The other nice feature is the ultra-thin Foam Nitrile coating, is so thin and breathable and durable that it acts as a second skin, and designed with a cell structure that disperses fluids on contact for an improved grip. Additionally, nitrile also offers some great protection to most common chemicals.
Additional features in this new model include the handy Touchscreen compatibility feature which allows you to operate a touch screen phone or device without removing the gloves. And, from a design aspect these models also have reinforced thumb crotch which provides longer wear life and increased protection to a very vulnerable high wear area.
A knit wrist helps prevent dirt and debris from entering the glove and the black color hinders looking soiled.
They also come in unisex sizes from XS-XXL.
