Has anyone found anything that is effective as a breakaway/tearaway glove for rubber mill operation.

I found this, but not sure if anyone has experience with this brand or another brand: https://www.safetygloves.com/products/helix-1092

Thanks!

We purchased a pair of the gloves in your link and our guys loved them, even though they didn't have heat resistance.  But they wore out very quickly - within a couple of days. The nylon coating wore off (to the point of having a hole in the glove) and could lead to contamination.

I contacted the company and that is the only breakaway glove they have.  If I come across anything else I'll pass it on.
