Hand accidents do not discriminate.
A hand injury can seriously injure an individual and can also send them off the job for a few days. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2018 more than 123,900 workers experienced a hand injury while on the job, accounting for almost eight percent of all nonfatal workplace injuries.
Over the last 15 years, HPPE, high performance polyethylene, or engineered yarns, have seen some of the greatest innovation in producing cut-resistant gloves. HPPE gloves are developed by knitting multiple polyethylene fibers alone, or with other additives like stainless steel or DuPont™ Kevlar®. These threads, when knitted together, create a fiber that delivers a cut resistant material for the user while also providing great dexterity.
The Tillman 948 offers a HPPE shell for ANSI A2 cut resistance with an integrated glass knit fiber for added comfort. The 948 offers a nitrile micro foam coating for a superior grip when handling various materials.
