Jupiter 2 Structual Fire Fighting Gloves.
Impregnated Kevlar outer palm from the fingertips to the cuff base
The glove has a CROSSTECH Direct Grip moisture barrier
CROSSTECH Direct Grip is permanently attached to the inner thermal liner
Provided protection against heat & flame and also provides protection against cold
Resistant to puncture and laceration
Oil and gas repellent
A heat and shock absorber is intergrtaed into the knuckle area of the upper hand
The PHA Jupiter 2 is 100% matched to the hand by virtue of its ergonomic 3 dimensional cut
Washable at 60 degrees C
Kermal external material
Camel colour to minimise heat absorption
Capable of up to 20 washes
Ideal for people allergic to leather
CROSSTECH Direct Grip provides protection against blood, body fluids, gasoline, foam, sulphuric acid (37%), hyraulic fluid, chlorine and other chemicals.
Complies to NFPA1971. Does not melt or degrade after heat exposure of 250 degrees for 5 minutes.
The primary feature of the Gore-Tex and Crosstech glove insert is liquid penetration resistance to common fire ground chemicals along with heat stress reduction and durability.
Note: Eska gloves only use Crosstech glove inserts.
Gore-Tex fabric is engineered to give penetration resistance against water, NFPA 1971 common fore ground chemicals and AS 4967/ AS 21616.6 listed chemicals.
To give unirform resistance to contaminants and greater overall liquid protection, all Gore-Tex barriers are factory seam-sealed by Gore.
NFPA 1971 defined "common chemicals" : Battery acid (37% sulphuric), gasoline (ASTM Ref. Fuel C), hydraulic fluid (phosphate-ester), aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF) and swimming pool chlorine solution (65% free CI).
AS 4967 / AS 2161.6 chemicals tested in accordance with ISO 13994:1998 Procedure C1:40% sodium hydroxide; 36% hydrochloric acid; 37% sulphuric acid; 50% toluene and 50% iso-octane (V/V).
Fore penetration resistance against blood and body fluids, in addition to water and the NFPA and AS chemicals listed above, a Crosstech barrier is required.
Crosstech fabric has been specifically designed to pass liquid penetration-resistant challenges after more that two times the NFPA requirements for pathogen resistance.
Both Crosstech and Gore-Tex glove inserts are heat and flame-resistant. When tested, these textiles and Gore's intimate bi-component barrier technology create a
thermally stable moisture barrier that will not melt, separate, ignite or degrade after high heat exposure. Gore's moisture barriers also exhibited high hot and cold
flex-to-leakage resistance, high UV degradation resistance, and high abrasion resistance.
