812CR6 Cut Resistant Gloves

St. Paul, Minn. (April 27, 2017) – Ergodyne strengthened the cut resistance in its Trades Gloves Series today. The Armortex®-backed palm on the new ProFlex® 812CR6 Utility + Cut Resistance Gloves delivers enhanced protection from cut, slash and puncture without significant loss of dexterity or flexibility.

“Joining the 812CR and 710CR Cut Resistant Gloves in the recently redesigned ProFlex® Trades Series, the 812CR6 is designed and tested to global standards,” said Andy Olson, product director, Ergodyne. “It achieves levels ANSI/ASTM A6 and ISO Cut E for applications where a higher level of cut protection is required.”

The new 812CRs are based on the best-selling ProFlex® 812s and incorporated end user feedback in the design. The cut-resistant Armortex® is composed of stronger materials including Kevlar® and stainless steel. Plus, red contrasting color fingertips allow for more visible hand signaling on the job.

Many work gloves with a similar level of cut protection on the market are stiff and inflexible, limiting dexterity for detail work and causing hand fatigue. With the 812CRs, workers who require a high level of cut and slash protection on the job don’t have to sacrifice durability and dexterity to get it.

“The 812CR6 is yet another example of ProFlex® Trades Series Gloves pushing the boundaries of technical protection,” said Tom Votel, president & CEO, Ergodyne. “Workers dealing with significant cut hazards on the job can count on the protection this new addition provides.”
