Fire-resistant goat skin
Clutch Gear FR gloves bring together the beauty and fit of Superior Glove's mechanics gloves with the outstanding protection against flame and open spark that only carbon fiber can provide, Superior Glove said. Carbon fiber withstands prolonged exposure to direct flame and will not burn, char or harden. Arc-flash testing placed these gloves at level 2, with a rating of ATPV = 19.1 cal/cm² (Note: these gloves are designed for spark and flame resistance, not thermal contact.) Featuring black goat-grain palms and a knit Kevlar liner that gives them an ASTM level-2 cut rating, these gloves offer incredible comfort, dexterity and touch sensitivity for workers in utilities and the oil and gas industry, where protection from arc flash is at the top of the list, the company said. Goatskin palms provide unparalleled abrasion resistance and touch sensitivity, plus the beauty of grain leather that conforms to your own hands.
