Unmatched cut protection with SuperFabric®
SuperFabric® brand materials provide ISEA/ANSI level A6-A9 cut resistance and exceed CE Level 5 cut resistance. The configuration of tiny guard plates doesn't allow these hazards to find a "window" to penetrate the skin's surface. Just a single layer of breathable, dexterous, cut and puncture-resistant SuperFabric® brand material inside or outside your PPE protects against blades, wire, metal, glass, and more – we’ve prevented life-changing injuries and saved companies millions in medical expenses. Cut injuries make up a large portion of reported injuries in industrial workplaces, yet 70% can be prevented. Most SuperFabric® products provide ANSI/ISEA level A6 through A9 cut resistance, giving workers more elevated cut protection than typical woven PPE. Unlike typical fiber-based safety gloves, HexArmor with SuperFabric® is designed to prevent hazards from puncturing through and ultimately penetrating the skin’s surface. Most SuperFabric® PPE maintains industry-leading A6 to A9 rated cut levels.
SuperFabric® Puncture Resistance
SuperFabric® brand materials are engineered to deflect and block everything from industrial puncture hazards as thick as a wood splinter, to a single wire strand from a steel braided cable. The spacing between the guard plates provides needed flexibility without sacrificing performance. HexArmor® gloves, arm, and body protection made with SuperFabric® are engineered to arrest and deflect everything from industrial puncture hazards as jagged as a wood splinter, to a fine single wire strand from a steel braided cable. Small guard plate geometry traps and blocks the hazard, providing flexibility while preventing a puncture from reaching the skin, an event that could lead to a laceration.
SuperFabric® Needlestick Protection
HexArmor® needlestick-resistant products work by layering flexible SuperFabric® brand materials over each other; providing superior performance without sacrificing dexterity. SuperFabric® guard plates either block and deflect or trap and arrest needle hazards in the small gaps found between guard plates, keeping workers safe from needlestick injuries.
Needle-resistant products by HexArmor® feature layers of SuperFabric® brand material that block, deflect, trap or arrest needle hazards in the small gaps found between the guard plates. All while maintaining dexterity and breathability. SuperFabric® offers industry-defining needlestick protection. And, unlike most other needle-resistant technology, you don’t see a dip in other protective properties when you choose HexArmor PointGuard® products. Our needlestick-resistant products also boast some of the highest cut resistance in the industry.
Wrinkle Rubber Latex
Wrinkle rubber latex is a flexible, non-porous palm coating that provides excellent dry grip. It also offers good wet grip, but is not recommended for use with hydrocarbon and organic solvents such as gasoline as these can cause premature degradation. When wrinkle rubber gets wet, it can turn a powdery gray; however, this does not affect performance.
The Next Generation of Impact Protection
The most advanced HexArmor™ impact resistance comes with all the dexterity, all the comfort, and more protection than offered by any other impact-protective glove on the market. Our proprietary IR-X™ technology shields our gloves with a full back-of-hand Impact Exoskeleton™ so every joint and knuckle is protected from debilitating blows.
In addition to being 42% taller than competitive impact guards, IR-X™ smash guards are purpose-built to deflect the force of sudden impacts away from the impact point, rather than transferring force directly to the hand. This unique characteristic is what sets IR-X™ safety levels higher than the competition, and its flexibility is what makes the IR-X™ Impact Exoskeleton™ more comfortable and more dexterous than any other impact-resistant technology available.
