The gloves are supplied in pairs.
Patented Turtleskin Material
Light, breathable and almost impenetrable, the Turtleskin fabric has the world's tightest weave and is so diverse and strong that it has been used by everyone from law enforcement, to the military, to NASA.
Features Aramid Fibre
Aramid material is weaved tight to provide superior protection from sharp objects including metal shards, needlesticks, knives and glass fragments. This tight weave prevents lateral fibre and inter-fibre shifting. For additional cut and puncture protection, the Turtleskin Utility Safety Gloves have a palm side Aramid lining.
Designed to be comfortable, the Turtleskin Utility Safety Gloves feature a mesh liner and an adjustable Velcro closure to achieve a personalised fit, helping to ensure protection and maximum ease of use.

How Turtleskin Tests Puncture Resistance
Turtleskin use a 28 Gauge needle to test the resistance of their glove range. The needle is aimed at the glove at a 90 degree angle, at a velocity of 500mm/min. This is repeated 12 times and the average force required to puncture the glove is then recorded.
