High performance gloves are machine knit constructed of high-strength yarns that provide increased levels of dexterity and abrasion and cut-resistance. Most feature coatings to increase the durability and gripping power. High performance polyethylene (HPPE) has a tensile strength 15 times stronger than steel on an equal weight basis. Gloves made with HPPE are lightweight, comfortable and abrasion- and cut-resistant. Tests have shown that gloves made with HPPE fibers have up to 20 times the abrasion resistance of gloves made with spun aramid yarns. The Cordova-brand Javelin™ glove features a white, 13 ga HPPE shell and white polyurethane (PU) palm coating. It offers an A2 cut level.
