Superior Emerald anti-shrink cut-resistant composite string knit gloves. This high-performance style in our Emerald CX lineup resists shrinking even with repeated laundering, and features a composite blend of six yarns: Kevlar, stainless steel and several poly/cotton strands for washable comfort and durability. Gloves are rated ASTM cut-level 4 (3000 grams of cut force) and feature high abrasion resistance (2500 cycles) - yet are dexterous and comfy. High-wear area between index finger and thumb is fully reinforced with a special cut and abrasion-resistant yarn for extra protection. All six fibers are distributed evenly across the knit for a consistency that increases both the effectiveness of the cut and abrasion resistance and glove lifespan. The strongest yarns (stainless-steel encased by Kevlar) are on the exterior face and are spun together in a way that will not allow steel to pop through. Hand-to-hand reversible and fully launderable (no chlorine bleach) for greater savings. great qualities, wash after wash, with minimal shrinkage and better shape retention. Applications include metal fabrication, automotive assembly, glass handling, sheet metal.
