When the job calls for heavy-duty cut protection, handy slip-resistance and no-smudge surface protection, the Brass Knuckle SmartCut BKCR404 is the glove to choose. This glove is ideal for handling finer-surfaces and finished goods, like glass, polished metals, painted or powder coat surfaces, ceramics and more. BKCR404 is thoughtfully designed — starting with upwinding of a high-quality, ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene fibre thread blend to ensure dexterity and tactile sensitivity. This HDPE knit fibre provides ANSI cut level 4 protection without bulk. The soft polyurethane coating over palms and fingers is extremely pliable, enhancing dry grip. When compared to nitrile and latex coatings, polyurethane offers the highest level of dexterity and improves ergonomics. The carefully manufactured coating on the BKCR404 leaves minimal marking (residue) — even on glass, metal or other fine finishes. Fit is an integral part of comfort, affecting both productivity and wearer compliance. These gloves reflect Brass Knuckle’s fit, form and function development methodology, wherein stitching, yarn combinations and coatings each must account for natural curvature of the hand and flex points.
