Roswell, Georgia -- For work environments that pose a risk of cuts and abrasions, Kimberly-Clark has launched two new products that offer protection as well as comfort - Jackson Safety G60 Level 2 polyurethane-coated cut resistant gloves and Jackson Safety G60 Level 5 cut resistant sleeves with Dyneema fibre.
Both are ideal for metal fabrication, glass handling, automotive assembly and stamping and assembly, says the manufacturer.
"The new gloves offer cut resistance without compromising dexterity, while the sleeves deliver the highest level of cut protection as well as comfort," said Veronica Savage, category manager for industrial gloves, Kimberly-Clark Professional.
The gloves protect against minor cuts and abrasions, offer a barrier against oil penetration and provide excellent dexterity for improved productivity. Other benefits include: ANSI/EN 388 Level 2 cut resistance; a stretch Kevlar liner which also helps cut resistance and give a comfortable fit; and protection for intermittent heat contact up to 212 deg F (gloves must not come into contact with a naked flame)/.
The new sleeves provide superior cut protection, making them ideal for work environments that pose a risk of cuts and abrasions, said Kimberley-Clarke. They also offer ANSI Level 3/EN388 Level 5 cut resistance, and have a patent-pending proprietary closure for the arm and wrist, the company adds.
