Brass Knuckle SmartCut 404 combines ANSI cut level A3 protection and a smooth-grip polyurethane coating. The toughness of SmartCut 404 begins with high-performance HDPE knit fiber that provides protection without bulk and a strength-to-weight ratio 8 to 15 times higher than steel. Next comes the polyurethane coating on full fingers and palm. Soft and flexible polyurethane coatings are excellent for dry-grip applications, but also perform well in light oil conditions (they are not recommended for heavy liquid environments). The smooth texture enhances the glove’s abrasion resistance — important for handling glass and other heavy-yet-fragile material. In addition to glass handling, ideal applications include construction, electrical assembly, general assembly, HVAC, manufacturing, vehicular construction, receiving areas, and sheet metal. SmartCut 404 has the cut and slip resistance these applications demand, plus a coating that won’t mar product surfaces. Available in five sizes and with color-coded wrists to simplify sizing and re-issuing.
