High performance gloves are machine knit constructed of high strength yarns that provide increased levels of dexterity and abrasion- and cut resistance. Most feature coatings to increase the durability and gripping power. High Performance Polyethylene (HPPE) has a tensile strength 15 times stronger than steel on an equal weight basis. Gloves made with HPPE are lightweight, comfortable and abrasion- and cut resistant. Tests have shown that gloves made with HPPE fibers have up to 20 times the abrasion resistance of gloves made with spun aramid yarns. The Cordova brand TUF-COR™ glove is designed for splash protection. It features a salt and pepper, 13-gauge HPPE/glass shell with tough, two-layer nitrile coating. It offers an A4 cut level.
