The Cordova Safety Products-brand Caliber™ glove features a white, 13-gauge HPPE shell, gray, PU palm coating, and blue elastic wrist.
High-performance gloves are machine knit constructed of high-strength yarns that provide increased levels of dexterity and abrasion- and cut-resistance. Most feature coatings to increase the durability and gripping power. High Performance Polyethylene (HPPE) has a tensile strength 15 times stronger than steel on an equal weight basis. Gloves made with HPPE are lightweight, comfortable and abrasion- and cut-resistant. Tests have shown that gloves made with HPPE fibers have up to 20 times the abrasion resistance of gloves made with spun Aramid yarns. The Cordova-brand Caliber™ glove features a white, 13-gauge HPPE shell, gray polyurethane (PU) palm coating, and blue elastic wrist. It offers an A2 cut level.
