Choose BKCR3520 for Cut Level A2 applications requiring a higher level of tactile sensitivity. The glove’s extreme flexibility is derived from its thinner, 15-gauge composite shell. This flexibility is paired with an abrasion-resistant nitrile coat and a reinforced thumb crotch.

About the glove

The BKCR3520 rivals our most dexterous cut level A2 protection, and its durable nitrile coat offers increased abrasion resistance. 

A premier medium-duty glove choice for cut resistance and slip protection for applications also demanding dexterity, BKCR3520 is foam nitrile on a thin, 15-gauge seamless shell made of engineered composite yarn that includes high performance polyethylene (HPPE). Sponge-like foam nitrile channels oil away from the surface, allowing for excellent on the-job, need-it-now slip resistance.

The glove features cut- and abrasion-resistant reinforcement of the thumb crotch, an area prone to significant wear and tear. This means increased protection as well as a longer wear life — which translates into greater cost savings.

  • Nitrile foam coating on full fingers and palm. Ideal choice for wet or dry and light-oil applications that also require excellent abrasion resistance. For wet-grip applications, sponge-like foam coating draws oil and other liquids away from the gripping surface, improving slip resistance. 
  • Reinforced thumb crotch provides additional strength between the thumb and forefinger, offering more protection in an area that is highly susceptible to wear and tear. 
  • The shell is 15-gauge HPPE (High Performance Polyethylene) fiber that is lightweight and provides ANSI cut level A2 protection. Yarn configuration is optimized for fit, function, and cut-protection performance. 
  • Color codes simplify re-issuing and spot checking for compliance. Brass Knuckle® cut level A2 gloves feature a black Brass Knuckle logo. Color-coded cuffs indicate glove size. 
  • A full knit wrist — seamless and stretchable — provides a snug fit and prevents dirt, debris, and cold from getting inside glove.
