1980s Cut Resistant Safety Gloves

Factory workers have long faced a high risk of injury to their hands when working with heavy machinery, even with protective gloves made from leather and other materials. But in the 1980s, a new generation of high performance plastic fabrics offered advanced protective properties, such as heat and puncture resistance. Safety gloves made with these high-tech plastics can prevent a number of burns, cuts, and abrasions, helping protect us on the job.
