TechTrade Pro-Tech 8 Fusion Short Cuff Glove (TT-PT8SC) - $68.00

Pro-Tech 8 Fusion

The Pro-Tech 8 Fusion structural firefighting glove was introduced in the Summer of 2010. It became an immediate sensation in the fire service by providing the superior dexterity, grip, flexibility, comfort and fit that Pro-Tech 8 users expect at a cost effective level.

As with all our structural models, this stunningly light-weight flexible glove goes well beyond all the protective and performance requirements of the NFPA 1971 Standard �� 2013 Edition. Most importantly, Fusion maximizes "gloves-on capability" through all your various fire ground tasks, which is the ultimate enhancement to hand safety.

The Fusion glove breaks in extremely fast and remains soft and flexible after use. It features the unique Pro-Tech 8 multi-layer knuckle guard system to protect this vulnerable area and incorporates a textured mesh knit inner liner for efficient don and doff performance.

The Pro-Tech 8 Fusion Glove is independently certified as compliant to the NFPA 1971 Standard �� 2013 Edition �� on Protective Ensemble for Structural Firefighting; certifying agent Safety Equipment Institute, Virginia

The palm side outermost layer is highly flexible and durable water repellant goat skin suede.
Cut and heat resistant knitted Kevlar/Nomex forms the second palm side layer.
Mesh knit made of 100% modacrylic forms the third layer of the palm side and serves as the inner liner, while the palm side fingers have been further reinforced with a layer of knitted 100% modacrylic.
The knuckle guard has an outer layer of 100% Kevlar�, two layers of silicon carbide both fused to 100% Kevlar�, another layer of 100% Kevlar� and another layer of modacrylic knit which represents the inner liner. This unique flexible 7-layer system provides additional thermal protection and cut/puncture resistance at the vulnerable knuckle compression point.
In addition to the knuckle guard section, the back side outer layer is formed by the suede leather and a full layer of cut and heat resistant 100% Kevlar� knit which runs the length of the glove from finger tips to cuff edge.
Back side of the fingers are reinforced with a layer of knitted modacrylic and mesh knit modacrylic forms the next layer of the back side, serving as the inner liner.
Finger sidewalls are constructed with an outer layer of Kevlar/Nomex and two additional layers of 100% modacrylic knit.
The glove inside is fully lined with two layers of a highly breathable, completely sealed, polyurethane membrane to prevent liquid penetration and protect against blood borne pathogens.
100% Kevlar� high burst thread is used throughout the gloves.
Reflective tape is used on the glove back side near the wrist area.
