Chain mail gloves for galley

Posted by freemexy on January 6th, 2021

Chain-mail gloves, which are easy to clean in hot soapy water, are a good idea particularly when cutting meat. Ships' officers are advised to procure these in consultation with their management offices. These gloves are regularly used ashore by butchers, and in the meat-packing industry, by scuba divers and by animal control officers (against animal bites).

New with tags: A brand-new, unused, unworn and undamaged item in the original packaging (such as the original box or bag) and/or with the original tags attached. See all condition definitions
If you’ve ever heard of cut-resistant gloves containing glass or steel, the hardness corner of the triangle explains how that works. Hardness refers to the material’s ability to dull a blade and is achieved by engineering very hard substances into the yarn itself. If the thought of glass in your gloves makes you itchy – don’t worry, you won’t feel a thing!

Looking closely at a three-ply yarn, you may be able to spot the three different pieces that make up the yarn, but what you won’t see are the hundreds of filament fibers that make up each piece of yarn. It is how these filament fibers move together that helps determine the level of cut resistance.

In cut-resistant fibers there is “rolling action,” which means that the filament fibers can move loosely and the motion absorbs some of the impact from the blade. If this is hard to imagine, picture a rope tied taut between two points and trying to cut through it with an axe – cuts pretty easily, right? Now, imagine that same rope tied to the same two points but instead of being taut, it’s hanging loosely. Can the axe still cut through easily? Probably not – you’ll need to take a couple of whacks to cut it now.

Some yarns inherently contribute more than others to the rolling action, or “slipperiness,” of the fiber. For instance, there is much debate over which is stronger, Kevlar or Dyneema, but there is no question that Dyneema (or HPPE) is more slippery than Kevlar. This inherent slipperiness helps blades glide over the fiber rather than cutting through it. In fact, HPPE is so slippery that when it’s extruded as a sheet, it can be used as an artificial skating rink, allowing the skate blades to glide along without cutting through.
