Brasco Safety has introduced an impact-resistant metacarpal protection glove.
Lisle Cotton yarn is stronger than most cotton due to a unique spinning construction and provides a soft, thin, comfortable and flexible liner for this glove. This specific PVC/nitrile blended coasting provides excellent mechanical protection, liquid/oil protection while maintaining high levels of flexibility and density. This coating is very abrasion resistant in many environments.
ThermoPlastic Rubber (TPR) is adhered to the liner, then the glove is coated, creating a single layer coated glove that provides much more dexterity and less hand fatigue than many double layer gloves of this type, says Brasco Safety. This TPR provides added impact protection to the back and palm of the hand. The gauntlet cuff provides added wrist/forearm protection.
