Hazard boots are a type of safety boots specially designed to protect the user against injuries caused by accidents likely to occur in industrial environments. Hazard boots are generally fitted with a safety toe-cap to withstand high impact or extreme compression and thick, oil-resistant soles with anti-static properties that provide additional protection against electrical, puncture, or extreme cold and heat.
Rubber is a material that features elastic properties and can be natural or synthetic. It is used in a wide variety of products such as gloves, tires, and athletic shoes. Because of Rubber's high elasticity properties, a chemical process called vulcanization is usually employed to harden the material and make it more durable, less elastic and more resistant to chemicals. Vulcanized rubber offers good insulation and excellent shock absorption.
