According to the company, both are ideal for metal fabrication, glass handling, and automotive assembly and stamping. The G60 Level 2 gloves protect against minor cuts and abrasions, offer a barrier against oil penetration, but still offer dexterity so that workers can get their job done. They have ANSI/EN 388 Level 2 cut resistance and protection for intermittent heat contact up to 212°F. The G60 Level 5 sleeve soffer ANSI Level 3/EN388 Level 5 cut resistance thanks to the Dyneema fibers with nylon, Lycra fiber and glass liner, which also provide a comfortable fit. They also have a patent-pending proprietary closure for the arm and wrist.
