Metalguard® Medium Weight (1878)

Metalguard gloves offer a minimum of three times more cut resistance and five times more abrasion resistance than a comparable weight Kevlar® knit cut resistant glove. The increase in abrasion resistance and added level of cut resistance does not sacrifice dexterity and prevents the need for double gloving. The medium weight 1878 glove is great as a liner for added protection.

Metalguard products are available in different weights and styles to ensure the proper degree of protection.
