There is an increasing number of people using cut proof gloves to prevent cutting accidents. Cut Resistant Gloves provide the most basic and strongest protection. That’s why a lot of companies are making these cut resistant gloves. However, it’s true that producing qualified cut resistant gloves requires a lot of skill and manufacturing experience, so there are many poor quality gloves that do not provide good protection.
In order for you to choose good quality gloves, we will explain some of the level test types and certificates for quality certification.
The DEX FIT gloves currently manufactured by Muveen have passed all of the following level tests and are also CE certified.
1. MECHANICAL PROTECTION EN 388
This standard applies to all kinds of protective gloves with respect to physical and mechanical aggressions caused by abrasion, blade cut, puncture, and tearing. Protection against mechanical hazards is expressed by an icon followed by four numbers (performance levels), each representing test performance against a specific hazard.
2. THE Taber Abrasion Test : ASTM D 3389-94
The Taber Abrasion Test is an ASTM D 3389 abrasion test.
This test method covers the determination of the water resistance of fabrics coated with rubber or plastics to abrasion. The abrasion is measured by mass loss in grams. A four-inch circular test specimen is mounted on a horizontal-axis platform while being abraded to failure under a specified vertical weight load (of 500 or 1,000 grams) by the sliding rotation of two vertically oriented abrading wheels. The abrading wheels are comprised of vitrified clay and silicon carbide abrasive particles.
3. ANSI Performance Level CPPT Range (grams) : ASTM F 1790-97
The Cut Protection Performance Test (CPPT) is an ASTM F 1790 – 97 standard cut test. :
The ASTM F1790 – 97 is the standard most frequently used in the United States as a way to measure the cut resistance of safety products.
The cut performance rating measures the amount of force (grams) applied for failure to occur at a 25-mm distance of travel for a standard cutting blade.
The higher the value, the better the cut performance.
The performance rating is classified by ANSI/ISEA 105-2005 from a 0-5 level based on the outcome of the CPPT test.
4. ANSI/ISEA 105-2000 PERFORMANCE LEVEL CLASSIFICATIONS
The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the International Safety Equipment Association (ISEA) have developed guidelines that help assure the safety of consumers.
CE marking is a certification mark that indicates conformity with health, safety, and environmental protection standards for products sold within the European Economic Area. The CE marking is also found on products sold outside the EEA that have been manufactured to EEA standards.
ANSI is the first personnel certification accreditation body in the United States to meet internationally accepted practices for accreditation, and the first to become a signatory to the Pacific Accreditation Cooperation (PAC) Multilateral Arrangement (MLA) for ISO/IEC 17024.
