Cut-resistant gloves are a type of personal protective equipment (PPE) specifically designed to protect hands from cuts or lacerations due to contact with various cutting machines, equipment, tools, or sharp-edged items such as knives, blades, metals, glass, or ceramics. Cut-resistant gloves are made of special composite materials in combination with stainless steel mesh, fiberglass, and synthetic high-performance yarns.
Impact gloves are a type of personal protection equipment designed to help prevent hand injuries in work environments with high risks of impact hazards. Industries that are most susceptible to impact injuries include the oil and gas industry, mining, and manufacturing. These gloves are designed with a signature impact protection system that uses thermoplastic rubber (TPR) which is a key element that helps reduce the impact from hitting the bone.
