The SmartShell BKCR4599 heavy-duty protective glove (photo) provides ANSI Level 4 cut resistance, light-oil and moisture resistance, non-tacky slip resistance and shock-absorbing impact protection, all in a breathable and flexible package. On the palm and fingers, the BKCR4599 offers three layers of protection. The liner is an ultra-high-performance polyethylene (HPPE) and Spandex composite that delivers strong cut resistance without bulk. Bonded to the first layer is a gray polyurethane (PU) fabric topped with a gripping nitrile-rubber surface — a barrier to light oil or other light liquid penetration. In critical areas of the palm, padding provides impact resistance. Finally, the back of the hand is loaded with sonically welded thermoplastic-rubber (TPR) padding that counters workplace pounding and abrasion. — Brass Knuckle Safety Products, Alpharetta, Ga.
