What are cut-resistant gloves ?

April 11,2023

In personal protective equipment (PPE), cut-resistant gloves are those designed to protect hands from cuts or lacerations due to contact with various cutting machines, equipment, tools, or sharp-edged items such as knives, blades, metals, glass, or ceramics.

Cut-resistant gloves are made of special composite materials in combination with stainless steel mesh, fiberglass, and synthetic high-performance yarns.

Cut-resistant gloves come in varying thicknesses and are made of one or more of the following fibers and materials combined with rubber/polymer:

· Steel core —a cut- and abrasion-resistant material

· Metal mesh—made of stainless steel and is cut- and puncture-resistant

· Fiber metal blends—durable, cut- and abrasion-resistant

· Kevlar aramid fiber—flexible and lightweight, five times stronger than steel, flame-resistant up to 427°C

· Spectra fiber—flexible, cut- and abrasion-resistant even when wet; It is 10 times stronger than steel per unit weight.

· Dyneema—floats on water, durable and resistant to moisture and chemicals; It is 15 times stronger than steel.

· Super fabric—flexible; puncture-, cut-, and abrasion-resistant

Cut-resistant glovesare evaluated against the standards set by ISO 13997:1999 and the European standard EN388.
