SuperFabric ® Prevents Lacerations Workers are exposed to cut hazards on a regular basis as they are doing their jobs. HexArmor ® products with SuperFabric ® * brand material have a secret weapon against cut hazards that no other glove can boast. HexArmor ® is an exclusive licensee of SuperFabric ® brand material. SuperFabric ® technology resists lacerations and slashes like no other material on the market. Cut protection isn’t complete without puncture protection. The cut resistant materials commonly found in cut-resistant safety gloves – blends of yarns such as Kevlar ® or Dyneema ® – provide some level of protection from straight-edged hazards. However, they don’t offer sufficient protection from variable hazards such as metal burrs, wires, jagged rock, or slivers commonly found in mining environments. When a sharp corner, burr, wire “wicker,” or other protruding hazard comes into contact with the hand, it can penetrate the glove and scrape or cut the skin. With high-performance fiber knit gloves, the hazard will poke through the knit shell of the glove and tear laterally to create a laceration. Gloves that have cut resistance often lack the puncture protection needed to stop lacerations. HexArmor ® mining safety gloves are proven to protect against cuts and punctures. We test our gloves both in the lab and out in the field to validate their performance. Our data shows that HexArmor ® gloves deliver the highest degree of puncture and cut resistance performance. Most Lacerations Begin As A Puncture
