Superior Glove announced the release this week of the world's first -- and only -- 18-gauge arc flash-rated glove. Made with DuPont™ Kevlar®, this glove combines the high dexterity of an 18-gauge yarn with an arc flash level 2 rating.

"We strive to create innovative safety products that are comfortable to wear," said Superior Glove President Tony Geng. "This glove has been in development for a while, so this is very exciting for us."

13,000 arc flash-related incidents occurred in 2013, 400 of which resulted in fatality. These incidents are preventable with the right precautions and the proper personal protective equipment. Superior Glove aims to increase worker safety and protection with the introduction of this 18-gauge arc flash glove.
