Cut-resistant work gloves rated at ANSI level 4

February 10, 2009

Magid Glove & Safety offers CutMaster® XKS™ work gloves. Manufactured from the company's XKS yarn, these machine-knit gloves earn an ANSI cut level 4 rating, which the company says is as much as 2-1/2 times greater cut protection than gloves made from a 100 percent aramid or HPPE yarn of similar weight.

The low-lint yarn is made from a combination of stainless steel wire, Kevlar®, and high-performance fibers. It provides cut protection with almost no wire popping. The strength and black coloration of the yarn make the gloves able to withstand tough work conditions while hiding dirt and grime to help extend wear and reduce the rate of disposal or required laundering.

The gloves employ a seamless, form-fitting shape, and the reversible design, color-coded series labels, and color-coded wristbands by size allow for simplified sorting after laundering. They are available in five different weights and constructions, from medium-weight knit to heavy-weight terrycloth.
