S18KGNE:: Try the World’s Thinnest Arc Flash Glove!

by Matt on November 29, 2016

Comments (0)


Mark the time; today will go down in history with the rest of these world’s firsts. This date will henceforth be known as the day that the S18KGNE Dexterity® Flame-Resistant Arc Flash Gloves with Neoprene Palms was released.


 

What makes this glove so special?

Never before has an arc flash glove been this thin! This is the world’s first — and only — 18-gauge arc flash-rated glove.

Tested for arc flash level 2, these gloves have an Arc Thermal Protective Value of 8.2 cal/cm². Meaning that they can withstand 8.2 calories of heat per cm² of fabric and still prevent the onset of a second-degree burn.

 

Neoprene palms for flame resistance:

Along with better grip compared to leather arc flash gloves, palm coatings can improve arc flash resistance. Hugh Hoagland, founder of ArcWear explains the benefit of palm coatings on arc flash gloves:

“When the International Association for Test Materials developed an arc flash test (ASTM F2675), the decision was to rate a glove based on the least protective area — like the back of the hand. So a glove may be rated for 8 cal/cm² of arc flash protection, but the palm coating can give up to 50 cal/cm² of protection. So palm coatings are great news for arc flash protection since the palm and fingertips are where the most heat occurs in many arc flashes.”


What else does the glove offer?

Along with better dexterity than any other arc flash-rated glove, the S18KGNE also has:

  • 1,125 grams of cut protection for ANSI A3 cut rating.
  • Touchscreen compatibility.
  • Latex free to limit the risk of allergic reactions — like all of our Canadian-made gloves.
