Work Gloves from Magid Offer Extreme Protection
Highly protective work gloves.
Chicago, IL — The next generation of cut-resistant hand protection has arrived with the release of Magid Glove & Safety's new CutMaster® XKS Work Gloves. Manufactured from the company's signature XKS yarn, these new machine-knit gloves earn an ANSI Cut Level 4 rating — as much as 2.5X greater cut protection than gloves made from a 100 percent aramid or HPPE yarn of a similar weight.

This new level of protection is due to the inherent strength and black coloration of XKS yarn, and the new gloves are able to withstand the most grueling applications and work conditions while effectively hiding dirt and grime to extend wear and reduce the rate of disposal or laundering required.

Manufactured using a proprietary yarn blending and fiber spinning technology, XKS Yarn is made from a special combination of stainless steel wire, Kevlar® and high performance fibers. The result is a low-linting yarn that offers superb cut protection with virtually no wire popping, delivering extreme durability and ensuring long-term comfort. These gloves provide a toughness in the field and in the wash can extend usage up to two to three times longer than gloves made from other cut-resistant materials.

The gloves use a seamless, form-fitting shape that enhances agility and dexterity, while the reversible design, color-coded series labels and color-coded wristbands by size make for easy sorting after laundering. The gloves are currently offered in five different weights and constructions ranging from a medium weight knit to a heavy weight terrycloth to meet the needs of even the most rigorous industrial applications. These include, but are not limited to, automotive manufacturing, metal fabrication, metal stamping, household appliance assembly, material handling, aerospace manufacturing, paper production and glass fabrication.

The work gloves are medium weight XKS yarn blended, 7-gauge machine knit gloves that provide excellent, all-around hand protection for assembly work and material handing. Made from an elasticized XKS yarn blend, the gloves have a 10-gauge, high density construction to deliver custom fit protection, extending glove wear and bringing comfort and agility to even the most demanding task.
