Reformulated nitrile coating
Superior Glove has reformulated the coating on its Emerald CX 10-Gauge ASTM 5 Cut-Resistant Glove with Nitrile Palm. After extensive trials at various plants, Superior Glove perfected the composition of the nitrile coating, revising the original formula to give workers exactly what they want. Test trials in the biggest metal yards in the country resulted in users saying the gloves last longer, are resistant to cuts and liquids don’t soak through easily; are more durable than leather gloves; better than cotton gloves in every way; and the tighter fit makes tasks easier to accomplish. These "truly revolutionary" cut-resistant gloves offer ASTM cut-level 5 with unsurpassed dexterity, says the manufacturer. These 10-gauge gloves are knit with a stainless steel/composite filament core. They feature ASTM level-3 abrasion resistance and foam nitrile palms for superior grip. Able to sustain 3975 grams of cutforce during testing, these gloves have superb dexterity and touch sensibility. The back of the hand is uncoated for good breathability. The gloves are idea; for a variety of applications, including automotive, metal fabrication and glass manufacturing.
