Application specific cut standards remain the only way to specify cut-resistant protective gloves; however, A4 cut resistance has quickly become the de facto minimum standard for work gloves used in many applications. Foremen and plant managers alike trust its performance and feel confident putting their people in it when setting out for another hard day at work. Brass Knuckle SmartCut (BKCR4420) offers this highly desirable A4 cut resistance PLUS a whole lot more, making it a value-added glove with plenty of upsides.
Brass Knuckle SmartCut starts with a high-density polyethylene (HDPE) knit shell to provide ANSI cut level A4 protection without bulk, with a strength-to-weight ratio 8 to 15 times higher than steel. But then SmartCut adds superior grip, moisture protection, and a high degree of dexterity. Come for the cut protection; stay for the comfort and grip.
To achieve this winning combination, SmartCut has a water-based polyurethane (WBPU) coating as a palm and finger base coat. This helps reduce penetration of liquids, including light oil. Then it secures grip with a foam nitrile top coat, perfect for working with oils, petrochemicals, fuels, and most acids. Then, a sandy grip finish further enhances abrasion resistance and cut protection.
It’s why SmartCut is the choice of so many industries, from metal work and stamping to automotive, oil and gas – and any application that needs a sturdy, hardy safety glove. It provides excellent medium-to-high cut resistance with layered protection that is the most breathable and flexible in its class.
