A real innovation from uvex. These are the next generation in gloves, offering both dexterity and grip. Designed specifically for the engineering and automotive type sectors. From the inside to the outside, uvex have considered it all. The phynomic gloves are produced to uvex pure standard meaning they have been tested for skin reactions; they are free from both DMF (Dimethylformamide) and TEA (Triethanolamine) and are therefore ideal for allergy sufferers. The ergonomic moulded hand shape fits like a second skin allowing precision feel (we tested them by putting together Lego figures!). They stretch and blend to the hand due to the soft fine knit meaning you forget you are wearing them, even if you have them on for a long time. The M1 Wet aqua polymer coating on the palm and fingers is breathable and liquid repellent whilst absorbing oil, in fact the more oil they absorb the greater the grip. They are robust, offer good abrasion resistance and are a real durable alternative to disposable gloves that give little or no protection and cause sweaty hands. We have tested them extensively in our own engineering workshop and used them when applying finishing oil in our Skill Centre where they met with approval. You can even undo buckles on muddy horse rugs wearing them! Conforming to EN 388 standard 4131, they have the following ratings: Abrasion Resistance Level 4 (max 4), Cut Resistance Level 1 (max 5), Tear Resistance Level 3 (max4) and Penetration Resistance Level 1 (max 4). They are approved to Oeko-Tex Standard 100. Available in sizes 8(M), 9(L) and 10(XL).
