Industry Applications:
Advanced manufacturing, automotive industry, electrical work, light heat applications, glass operations, metal stamping, sheet metal, food processing, meat packing.

Cut-resistant gloves are designed to protect hands from direct contact with sharp edges such as glass, metal, ceramics and other materials. Cut-resistance is a function of a gloves material composition and thickness. You can increase your cut protection by increasing material weight (i.e. ounces per square yard), using high-performance materials such as Spectra, Kevlar, etc., or by using composite yarns made with varying combinations of stainless steel, fiberglass, synthetic yarns and high-performance yarns.

Performance characteristics can also be affected by a materials weight and coatings applied to the outside surface. Lighter weight styles are typically more flexible, resulting in less hand fatigue, while their heavier counterparts will generally provide the wearer with more cut and abrasion protection. Coated gloves enhance grip, especially on slippery surfaces. However, some coated gloves may not be appropriate for food handling applications.

Characteristics, Applications and Glove Selection for Cut Resistant Fibers and Materials

  • Spectra FiberUltrahigh molecular-weight polyethylene fiber that offers high cut-resistance, even when wet. Its 10 times stronger than steel per unit weight.
    • Spectra gloves are cut and abrasion resistant, often lightweight, flexible and used for food processing, appliance assembly, food service, automotive assembly and the paper industry.
  • Dyneemais a superstrong polyethylene fiber that offers maximum strength combined with minimum weight. It is up to 15 times stronger than quality steel and up to 40% stronger than aramid fibers, both on weight for weight basis. Dyneema floats on water and is extremely durable and resistant to moisture, UV light and chemicals.
  • Kevlar Aramid Fiber five times stronger than steel per unit weight. Inherently flame resistant it begins to char at 800F (427C). The thread made of Kevlar fiber is used to sew seams on temperature-resistant gloves.
    • Kevlar gloves offer cut- and heat-resistance. Typically a lightweight flexible material that is used for many applications relating to automotive assembly, sheet metal handling and glass handling.
  • Fiber-Metal Blends many durable, abrasion-resistant gloves are made of a woven fabric blend of Spectra, Kevlar and stainless steel.
  • Metal Mesh interlocked stainless steel mesh offers superior cut and puncture protection due to its strength.
    • Metal Mesh gloves are very cut- and abrasion-resistant and are used often in meat/poultry applications.
  • SuperFabric Combinations of the number of layers, thickness, substrates, surface coatings, etc., lead to fabrics which have varying levels of puncture, cut and abrasion resistance, grip and flexibility. Tactile surface offers improved grip of wet and oily surfaces.
  • Steel Core gloves are cut- and abrasion-resistant and are often used for meat/poultry processing, glass handling, metal fabrication, automotive manufacturing as well as being used in the paper industry
  • Vectran: Gloves made from the Vectran fiber materials are cut- and abrasion-resistant, flexible and offer mid level heat protection. This glove material is often used in the rubber industry as well as plastic manufacturing and metal handling.

There are many different glove materials in the market that have a variety of performance characteristic and are used for many different applications.

Although the above materials are known to provide excellent cut-resistance, any glove material will provide some measure of cut-resistance. DUPONT manufacturing performed a cut-resistance test called a Cut Protection Performance Test (CPPT) comparing leather, cotton, standard Kevlar and Kevlar Plus materials. They found that the Kevlar Plus outperformed the standard Kevlar, cotton and leather materials. The results showed that standard Kevlar had the next best results followed by cotton and then leather pertaining to these specific materials.

Manufacturers typically use the ASTM F-1790 standard for measuring the cut protection performance of protective apparel. This test method uses force-distance testers to determine how resistant a material is to cuts when exposed to a cutting edge under specific loads. This method provides data to differentiate the cut resistance of common material such as cotton, leather and high performance fibers. Results are provided in terms of grams of weight applied to the specific material being tested.

Another testing agency which rates fabric and cut resistance is ANSI / ISEA (American National Standards Institute)/(International Safety Equipment Association). This standard is similar to the European standard:
