Why Choose the Impacto AV408 Flex Gloves?
The Impacto AV408 Flex Gloves aren't just a stylish pair of work gloves - if you work in mechanics or maintenance, a pair of AV408 could drastically boost your productivity and performance. The Impacto AV408 are fortified with a combination of VEP padding and suede leather to provide an excellent level of impact and vibration absorption during power tool usage, whilst strategically-placed flex lines ensure a high level of dexterity.
How Does VEP Padding Absorb Vibrations and Impacts?
VEPs (Visco-Elastic-Polymer) are solids that mimic the behaviour of liquids, which allows dissipation of shock waves better than any other material. The “solid-liquid” nature of VEP absorbs shock waves in all directions at once, reforming to its original shape at a rate that is slow enough so as not to exert outward pressure that could cause reverberations, but fast enough to regain its original shape before the next shock.
How Grippy Are the Impacto AV408 Gloves?
The Impacto AV408 offer superior gripping power to other mechanics gloves. That's because the AV408 are fitted with anti-slip patches along the palm and fingertips, which mitigate accidental slippage and create traction for a firmer hold.
Sizing of the Impacto AV408 Anti-Impact Gloves
The Impacto AV408 Anti-Impact Gloves are available in several sizes that should fit the hands of most users. Please measure the circumference of your hand around the palm. Do not include the thumb area.
