These gloves are available in sizes ranging from extra-small (6) to double extra-large (11). The manufacturer recommends you order a smaller size than your normal glove size since these were designed on a bigger template. Please select the size needed in the field located above.
The level of protection from mechanical hazards is expressed by a pictogram followed by four numbers, in this case 3231, where the resistance to abrasion is 3/4, the cut resistance is 2/5, the tear resistance is 3/4 and the puncture resistance is 1/4.
This fingerless liner consists in a blue polycotton and Lycra blend. This glove liner is equipped with an impact and vibration absorbing viscoelastic polymer (VEP) padding on the palm. This glove is provided with an adjustable Velcro® closure at the wrist to keep in place. This product has been design to serve as a liner, but it may as well be used as a glove if hazards allow it. However, these gloves are not certified anti-vibration according to the ISO 10819 standard as they do not cover the entire hand.
Viscoelastic polymer, abbreviated VEP, mimics the behavior of liquids, which allows dissipation of shock waves better than any other material. The unique state of matter of VEP absorbs shock waves in all directions at once, reforming to its original shape at a rate that is slow enough so as not to exert outward pressure that could cause reverberations, but fast enough to regain its original shape before the next shock. In laboratory tests, VEP has proven its ability to absorb up to 500% more shock than foam of the same thickness.
Cotton has a high water-absorbing capacity and can deal as well with sebum without getting damp. This fabric also has good breathable characteristics, it is hypoallergenic and it offers a nice touch and good comfort which suits perfectly to those who have sensitive skin. Cotton has low thermal-conductivity, therefore in summer it prevents your skin from heating, and in winter it preserves the warmth of your body.
Lycra also known as elastane is a synthetic fiber known for its exceptional elasticity. Indeed, Lycra can extend to 600% its original length before beginning to show signs of tearing. It also exhibits the ability to recover its original form after being stretched and dries at a blistering speed which is quite convenient while working.
This type of glove is recommended to workers dealing with tools such as hammers, hammer drills and other impact inducing machines. This glove protects from abrasion and impacts which make it an excellent candidate to protect workers from hand-held or hand guided power tools.
Of course, this glove offers no sure protection against frostbites, cuts, wear, tear and puncture so mechanical risks should not be overlooked. This glove moreover helps absorb and dampen impacts and vibrations, but can’t possibly prevent Raynaud’s disease or vibration white fingers disease which is a recognized industrial disease affecting blood circulation nor any other occupational diseases.
Maintenance and service life:
It is recommended to carry out a basic maintenance to extend the service life of your gloves. Simply wash them with cold water, that is, 85°F/30°C and a mild detergent. You can then dry them at low temperature in a dryer. Never use bleach on this glove.
