No thanks, I don't want to prevent hand injuries.
In our expert interview with Automotive Specialist Derek Coughlin, he said “automotive is a challenge but it’s also one of the biggest opportunities for innovation.” If you work in the automotive industry, chances are you’re encountering lots of hazards on a daily basis. Whether you’re a mechanic, assembly line worker or a metal stamper, you may be dealing with grease, sharp objects or chemicals all in the same day. With that in mind, we sorted through the dozens of automotive gloves we manufacture and selected four of our favorites.
If you spend your days in a body shop, you’ll definitely want to check these beauties out. The reason? Because they have an amazing 3510 grams of cut protection (ANSI level A6) but they also have a cotton liner to limit heat transfer.
These award-winning black Kevlar® gloves are a fantastic option for auto assembly and metal stamping. ANSI level A5 cut protection and level 3 abrasion resistance make these gloves a reliable and durable hand protection option. The black Kevlar® knit is also great at hiding dirt and grease stains – meaning that they’ll still look sharp between washes.
The two main reasons why you’ll love these gloves if you’re working on an assembly line are the TenActiv™ string-knit shell and the grey polyurethane palm coating. TenActiv™ is cool to the touch and moisture wicking, so you won’t overheat and sweat won’t pool under the glove. Polyurethane (PU) is the coating of choice for anyone working in assembly because it has the highest tactile feel. PU is also non-shedding, so it won’t contaminant whatever pieces you’re putting together.
These works-of-art revolutionized the glove industry. They were the first gloves to be paper thin but have high cut protection, which you can read more about here. With 1617 grams of cut protection (ANSI level A4), these gloves offer more protection than the barehand feel would lead you to think. Black foam nitrile palm coating increases your grip in wet and oily conditions by acting like a sponge.
