Ultrafine 18-gauge cut-resistant conductive for touchscreen friendly Kevlar® blended-knit glove with foam nitrile coating over palms and fingers. Sold in pairs.
Superior manufacturer’s code: S18KGFN
These gloves are available in sizes ranging from double extra-small (5) to double extra-large (11). Please select the size needed in the field located above.
This glove has a puncture resistance level 2, a cut resistance level A3 and an abrasion resistance level 3 according to ASTM and ANSI standards.
This comfortable and lightweight glove does not hamper dexterity and protects outstandingly from cuts and abrasion. The foam nitrile coating provides an excellent grip both on wet and slippery surfaces and even allows one to handle his or her touchscreen devices.
Kevlar®, a thermoplastic polymer related to aramids, is a low-density high-strength material which offers an excellent tensile strength, elongation and shear strength. This fabric doesn’t expand from temperature changes and fairly absorbs vibrations and shock. Kevlar doesn’t strain the hand and react chemically well to hydrocarbons.
Nitrile foam properties:
Nitrile foam has essentially the same properties as regular nitrile. The difference lies in the additives dispersed slightly through the compounding – in this case, a vulcanizing agent and a foaming agent are added, which causes a small loss of elasticity. Nitrile foam offer a better barrier performance to viruses and blood borne pathogens, and liquids for that matter, than latex foam but still doesn’t protect entirely since the frothing of nitrile makes it porous, thus permeable. As long as the limitations on use set by the manufacturer are respected, your latex glove will remain comfortable and offer a good dexterity.
This glove is recommended to workers in the general construction field, carpenters and woodworkers, oilfield heavy equipment operators, maintenance of heating, ventilating, and air conditioning systems workers, plumbers, as well as for the automotive industry, metal working and fabrication, small parts assembly, in the field of electronics, pulp and paper industries and the production of plastic materials.
Do not use for:
Kevlar® is known to have a low resistance to UV light and moisture. Nitrile has a low resistance to open flames. This glove cannot eliminate the risk of mechanical endangerment although it offers an excellent protection on this level. Foam nitrile is porous, thus permeable to liquids. This glove is partially covered only, thus it not recommended immersing it completely since it won’t protect you.
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. It is also recommended to rinse your glove with cold water after wash. You can then dry them at low temperature in a dryer. Never use bleach on this glove.
