Kimberly-Clark Professional has introduced two new Jackson Safety brand cut-resistant gloves and a cut-resistant sleeve.
The G60 Level 5 cut-resistant gloves with Dyneema® fiber — spun from glass, stainless steel, and spandex — meet ANSI Level 4/EN 388 Level 5 cut resistance. They are coated with dark polyurethane for improved grip and to hide dirt for longer wear. The gloves feature patented yarn and meet EN 420 standards, including length. Typical uses include metal fabrication, glass handling, sharp parts handling, and automotive assembly.
The G60 Level 3 cut-resistant gloves with Dyneema fiber — including nylon, Lycra® fiber, and glass liner — are coated with polyurethane and offer protection against hand lacerations, as well as improved dry and oil grip. They meet ANSI Level 2/EN 388 Level 3 cut resistance and EN 420 standards including length. The gloves are designed for work environments that pose a risk of minor cuts and abrasions, such as metal fabrication, glass handling, automotive assembly, and stamping and assembly.
The G60 Level 2 cut-resistant sleeves are suitable for work environments that pose a risk of cuts, abrasions, or burns. They are available with and without a thumbhole. The sleeves feature a Kevlar® outer layer and a cotton inner layer for cut resistance and comfort. They meet ANSI Level 2/EN 388 Level 2 cut resistance and EN 420 standards, offer good breathability, and are suitable for intermittent heat contact up to 212 degrees F. Typical uses include metal fabrication, glass handling, automotive assembly, and stamping and assembly.
