Cut-resistant (Level 5E) glove
18 September 2017
Hand protection specialist Globus is introducing a new cut-resistant (Level 5E) glove for workers operating in high cut risk environments who also need exceptional grip and fingertip precision.
The new SHOWA S-TEX 581 is manufactured using SHOWA’s engineered yarn technology combining three different fibres – Polyester, Hagane high carbon steel and Kevlar – protecting workers’ hands from significant cut hazards thanks to its Level 5 (EN388:2003) and Level E (ISO 13977) classification.
Suited for a range of industries including manufacturing assembly, automotive, glass and glazing and construction, where cut hazards are common, the SHOWA S-TEX 581 delivers impressive grip in greasy and light oily conditions thanks to the addition of an embossed finish to the foam nitrile palm coating, designed to disperse oils and liquids away efficiently.
The microporous foam nitrile coating also offers Level 4 (EN388:2003) abrasion resistance whilst enabling warm air and moisture on the inside of the glove to escape, helping keep hands dry and comfortable.
