How Many Levels of Cut-resistant Gloves Are There In Total?

Cut-resistant gloves are a kind of gloves that will not be easily cut. They have the properties of cut-resistant, stab-resistant, non-slip, and wear-resistant. It is widely used in meat segmentation, glass processing, metal processing, petrochemical industry, disaster relief, fire rescue and other industries.

Cut-resistant gloves are divided into 1-5 grades from low to high. There are three materials: aramid, high-strength polyethylene fiber or steel wire and polyester fiber. The price is determined by the material and the cut-resistant grade.

The general standard for the classification of cut-resistant gloves is the European Union BS EN 388, which is equivalent to the Australian/New Zealand standard AS/NZS 2161.3. The standard specifications cover 4 mechanical risks, namely, abrasion resistance, cut resistance, tear-resistance and stab resistance.

Gloves that meet the specifications must be marked with a blacksmith's hammer iron image shield logo, and the protection level is expressed from 1 to 4. Some cut-resistant gloves can even reach the highest cut-resistant rating of 5. Sometimes "x" and "0" will also be used, indicating that they are not applicable and the rating is lower than "1" respectively.

Cut-resistant gloves must also meet the requirements of general, comfort and efficiency, test procedures and labeling and information contained in the BS EN 420 standard, such as water penetration and the amount of hexavalent chromium released by leather gloves.

The cut-resistant test process of cut-resistant gloves is: take a sample in the palm of the glove, cut back and forth with a tungsten steel rotary cutter, and record the number of revolutions required to cut through the sample to compare the results of standard cotton samples that are interlaced and tested at the same time, The higher the calculated index, the stronger the cut resistance performance. However, the cut resistance test is not applicable to very hard materials.
