Our line of High Performance Cut Resistant Gloves by Cordova Safety Products includes gloves made with Taeki5 fiber, Kevlar and High Performance Polyethylene (HPPE).
Taeki5 is a versatile multi-filament yarn that combines high strength Taeki fiber, fiberglass and synthetic fiber to produce a wide variety of physical properties including abrasion, cut and contact heat resistance.
High Performance Polyethylene (HPPE) has a tensile strength 15 times stronger than steel on an equal weight basis. Hand and arm protection made with HPPE is lightweight, comfortable, abrasion resistant 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.
Kevlar has a tensile strength 5 times stronger than steel on an equal weight basis. Cut-resistant Kevlar yarn offers high temperature resistance and will not support combustion. Gloves & Sleeves made with Kevlar are available in a variety of gauges, coatings and lengths to address a multitude of industrial applications including drywall, roofing, metal fabrication, bottling, canning, and glass handling.
