 SHOWA Cut-Resistant Glove Innovation: Protection & Comfort

SHOWA offers a variety of cut resistant glovesand arm sleeves to reduce injuries and increase comfort and productivity to get the job done. From cut resistant shells to durable, protective coatings, explore abrasive resistant hand and arm protection from cuts, scrapes and punctures below.

Why Cut Resistant Gloves?

Cut resistant gloves are essential to your workplace safety. In the workplace, your hands are subject to many hazards. They can be caught between pinch points, be exposed to sharp objects, endure repetitive ergonomic stress, experience slips, trips, and falls, and encounter various line-of-fire-hazards. In fact, hand injuries account for nearly 10% of emergency hospital visits and more than 25% of all workplace accidents in the U.S. These injuries may include lacerations, contusions, fractures, infections, and more, most commonly caused by blunt trauma or injury from a sharp object.


Thankfully, your hands don’t have to be left unguarded and susceptible to such injuries. Here to protect you, SHOWA has created a range of multipurpose cut resistant gloves for a wide variety of medium-low risk applications. With a variety of glove shell materials, palm coatings, cuff lengths, glove or arm protective features, wrist fashioning systems, and more, you can refine your search to select a cut resistant glove for every application.


Coating Material Options for Optimal Protection

To increase your hand safety and protection, consider three main polymers. Flat-dipped and offering the exceptional grip SHOWA customers know and love, each provides their own unique cut resistant qualities. 


  • Polyurethane: A microporous elastomer plastic, polyurethane cut resistant gloves offer many advantages. Very flexible and elastic, they carry no latex proteins and do not shed particles like other polymers. With strong resistance to abrasion and oil, polyurethane does not harden in cold or soften in heat but maintains excellent perspiration capacity due to its porous ventilation.
  • Nitrile and Foamed Nitrile:Made with anti-slip vulcanized synthetic rubber, nitrile and foamed nitrile coating offer three times the puncture resistance of latex as well as good mechanical performance, excellent abrasion, and cut resistance. With no latex proteins, nitrile and foamed nitrile resists oil, grease, hydrocarbons, acids, certain organic solvents, pesticides, oils, and fuels.


SHOWA has many options for cut resistant gloves to best suit your needs. Through ANSI/ISEA protection standards, you can find lower grader A1 - A3 level protection all the way through A9 level cut resistant safety in order to choose your material for your specific use and glove safety cut resistant requirements.

SHOWA lining options, combined with a strong selection of coatings, offer non-abrasive functionality, durability, tactility, and cut resistance against lacerations and snags. Lining options allow you to select the best material composition, high-performing material weight, optimal wear life, and more. Evaluating between wrist fashioning systems, arm protection varieties, and more, explore our high-strength fibers of composite material, including engineering yarn, nylon, Kevlar, glass fiber, HHPE, aramid knit, polyester, and cotton.
