Composite insulated gloves provide electrical, mechanical and arc-flash protection, and as such do not need to be combined with any other kind of glove with mechanical protection.
The Composite glove range is made using a natural latex base covered by an outer layer of polychloroprene, combining mechanical resistance and comfort with a high level of protection.
Arc flash protection: the glove material has excellent properties in the event of a short circuit in the electric arc.
MECHANICAL AND THERMAL REQUIREMENTS
Average tensile strength: ≥16 MPa
Average elongation at break: ≥600%
