Polyco Polyflex Hydro C5 PHYK Cut Resistant Safety Gloves

The Polyco Polyflex Hydro C5 PHYK Cut Resistant Safety Gloves are knitted water-repellent gloves ideal for heavy construction and engineering in wet conditions. It features a lightweight liner which provides a fantastically high level of cut, abrasion and tear resistance.

Water-Repellent Coating

Unlike most other water-resistant gloves, the Hydro C5 gloves have a hydrophobic solution applied to them to keep hands dry in wet conditions. This means that the gloves don't have to be fully coated and can offer an exceptional level of flexibility while still being suitable for use in wet conditions.

Durable and Comfortable Grip

The Hydro C5 gloves also feature a nitrile foam palm coating. This gives the palm of your hand an incredible level of cushioning as well as grip, ensuring that your hands are as comfortable as possible no matter the condition or task.

Lightweight, Protective Liner

The liner in the Hydro C5 gloves provides it with the maximum levels of cut, abrasion and tear resistance to ensure your hands stay incredibly protected while you work. Despite the high level of protection offered by the liner it remains incredibly lightweight and comfortable to wear, ensuring that tasks can be carried out easily and safely.

Touch-Sensitive Fingertips

The fingertips of the Hydro C5 gloves are incredibly tactile and touch-sensitive. As well as helping you feel objects more easily, this also enables you to use touchscreens accurately and easily without having to remove the gloves.

What is EN 388?

You might have noticed that this product adheres to EN standard EN 388. EN standards ensure that the product you are buying meets the safety standards of the European Committee for Standardization (CEN), the highest standards organisation recognised by and working on behalf of the European Union. To pass any EN standard, a PPE product must undergo some of the most rigorous safety tests around.

There are many EN standards that our gloves adhere to. However, the EN standard that we’re concerned about here is EN 388. EN 388 stands for Mechanical Resistance, and informs you of your gloves' resistance to abrasion, cuts, tears and punctures.

How Do I Read the EN 388 Score?

Simply speaking, the higher the score that this product achieves, the better the product will be at resisting that hazard. Products will score between Level 0 and Level 4 for abrasion, tears and punctures, and if they weren’t tested for that hazard you will see N/A written instead of a number.

Cuts are a little different and, with the EN 388 standard rewritten in 2016, it means that gloves will either be tested to cut resistance or ISO cut resistance (sometimes called TDM cut resistance). Gloves tested to cut resistance will score between Level 0 and Level 5, and gloves tested to ISO cut resistance will achieve a score between Level A and Level F with the higher letter offering better cut protection.

Where Can I Find Out More?

This is just a brief overview of EN standard EN 388 so you know where you are standing. For further information, you can see the Introductory EN 388 Blog in our Knowledge Centre.

My lovely new safety gloves arrived quickly.
Note: I should've ordered a smaller a size - I came up between 2 sizes on the gauge but should've have gone smaller not larger. They stretch.
