Youngstown Protectors

Primary Protectors

 |  Kate Wade  |  ,

A new protector standard – ASTM F3258 – was recently created that allows for the use of materials other than leather if those materials meet certain safety criteria. Youngstown Glove will be launching a new line of Expertex Primary Protectors that follows this new standard. The gloves will be available in July 2023. The idea behind them is that these manmade fibers can offer additional safety benefits while maintaining high levels of dexterity and comfort. The Youngstown Expertex Primary Protectors are Cut Level A5, Puncture Level 5, flame resistant and arc rated to 29 cal/cm².
