What is Nitrile?

Nitrile is a synthetic rubber, and is superior when it comes to puncture resistance. It also increases durability and resistance to higher temperatures.

ANSI, The Higher the number = Better Performance

The American National Standadard for Hand Protection is rated from A1 all the way to A9. We go into further detail of these levels from an earlier post, Cut Resistant Safety Glove Ratings ANSI or EN388. Milwaukee offers A1, A3 and A5 gloves for their users, which is plenty of protection for the market they’re in.

200 Grams ANSI Cut Level 1 (A1):
Material handling, small parts assembly (sharp edges), packaging, warehouse, general purpose, forestry and construction.

1000 Grams ANSI Cut Level 3 (A3):
Material handling, small parts assembly (sharp edges), packaging, warehouse, general purpose, forestry, construction, pulp ad paper and automotive assembly.

3500 Grams ANSI Cut Level 5 (A5):

Features and ANSI level information is great, but if you’re like me, just point to the one I need. This all comes down to what you do. I’ve posted a few tables below showing which glove “fits” each core trade.
