Materials in Cut Resistant Gloves

Blogs | 2021.06.22 | Number of clicks:

According to different protective functions, safety gloves are usually divided into cut-resistant gloves, chemical-resistant gloves, waterproof gloves, thermal gloves, impact gloves and other series gloves, cut-resistant gloves are widely used in many industry fields.

Cut-resistant gloves can protect working hands from cut hazards by sharp objects, etc. They are widely used in industries such as food handling, glass processing, metal processing, rescue, etc. It's an important part of safety production.

Why cut-resistant gloves  are so hard to cut broken?

How exactly do they protect workers' hands against from cuts and lacerations?

The answer is all in the

Yarn Materials.

Cut-resistant gloves or sleeves are knitted by the composite yarns

with filling yarns, such as nylon, polyester or spandex added to make the glove liners more elastic.The composite yarns, which provides higher cut level protection for gloves, can be made from any of several different materials, or even a combination of several materials, resulting in a lightweight, comfortable feel while ensuring a certain cut level of protection:

Cut-resistant Material 01

Aramid

Aramid fibre has very high thermal stability and so can be used in the environments requiring heat protection up to 500 deg c. 

  • No melting point

  • High heat stability

  • Low heat conductivity

  • High cut resistance

  • Low flammability

Hanvo Safety aramid fiber ingredient glove is designed to provide a combination of thermal protection and cut resistance: WE799 and LB043. Ideal for use in automotive, metal stamping and press-shop environments. Kevlar® is the branded aramid based fibre from DuPont™. 

Cut-resistant Material 02:

Steel fiber

Steel fiber can reinforce cut resistance performance, but with a heavy weight. So it is typically used to deliver cut resistance in combination with other fibers such as aramid or HPPE. Hanvo safety can process steel to achieve the same lightness in weight and comfort levels of HPPE or glass fiber, but with the strength and protection of steel.

  • Cut resistance

  • Good corrosion resistance

  • Performance remains through the lifetime of the glove

  • Won’t fibrillate or degrade causing contamination

NJ3150Q, WE5192 gloves without sacrificing the comfort and flexibility of the hand, through the addition of steel wire fiber to obtain the D grade anti-cutting protection, can play a good cutting protection on metal, glass, knife edge and other sharp objects.

Cut-resistant Material 03:

Basalt fiber

HPPE /UHMW-PE:MetalQ® engineering fiber in Hanvo Safety

HPPE fiber has ultra-high strength, so it’s flexible and lightweight but highly durable. Gloves made entirely of MetalQ® engineering fiber without steel and glass fiber can achieve level C cut resistance according to EN388:2016 but when reinforced with steel or another cut fibre can be increased to level E cut resistance and above.

  • High Strength

  • Super Lightweight

  • High abrasion resistance

  • Comfort

  • Chemical resistant

Our latest cut resistant gloves utilise MetalQ® fiber to leverage all of these benefits including the 15G cut level E glove NJ5268 and 18G cut level D glove PE8256.

Cut-resistant Material 04:

Glass Fiber

Glass fiber is widely available yarn for cut resistant gloves. It has a smooth, silky surface which feels cool to the worker providing high comfort. 

  • High tensile strength

  • Cut resistance

  • Fire resistance

  • Water-resistance

  • Non-conductive

NJ8162Q and LN8165 knitted with glass fiber gloves providing light cut resistant performance,are ideal for automotive, goods manufacturing, glass handling.

Cut-resistant Material 05:

HPPE /UHMW

HPPE /UHMW-PE:MetalQ® engineering fiber in Hanvo Safety

HPPE fiber has ultra-high strength, so it’s flexible and lightweight but highly durable. Gloves made entirely of MetalQ® engineering fiber without steel and glass fiber can achieve level C cut resistance according to EN388:2016 but when reinforced with steel or another cut fibre can be increased to level E cut resistance and above.

  • High Strength

  • Super Lightweight

  • High abrasion resistance

  • Comfort

  • Chemical resistant
