Kevlar-lined goat grain glove offers ASTM level-4 cut protection. Elasticized backs provide a snug fit, allowing gloves to slip on and off easily. Great care has been put into these gloves to minimize oil buildup, which can provide an additional source of flaming. Arc-flash testing placed these gloves at level 4. These supple goat-grain drivers gloves are processed with Superior's own Oilbloc treatment for exceptional water and oil repellency. Oil simply won't soak through, not hours -or even days -after being dropped onto leather. (Untreated leather absorbs oils and liquids within seconds of contact.) Gloves are highly stain resistant, without picking up contamination, provide greater safety. These gloves are also treated with Waterstop, a fluoro-chemical water-repellent emulsion for excellent water, oil, and stain-repellent properties. Note: these gloves are designed for spark and flame resistance, not thermal contact.
