The weather is getting hotter every day. In this case, many people working on the outside construction site do not wear gloves. Accidents may occur instantaneously, so we hope most people wear gloves when working safely.
Cut resistant work gloves are also widely used at construction sites, and in this article, We would like to tell you what to consider when choosing cut resistant gloves. Wearing the right gloves is essential for proper hand protection. That’s why it’s even more important to understand the characteristics of cut resistant gloves. Cut resistant gloves offer different strength materials and features. When choosing a glove material, you should usually consider the following:
Spectra Fiber: Ultra high molecular weight polyethylene fiber provides high cut resistance even when wet. 10 times stronger than steel per unit weight.
Kevlar® Aramid Fiber: Kevlar fiber is also resistant to high temperatures, so it is also used when making heat-resistant gloves, with strength per unit weight 5 times stronger than steel. Kevlar gloves provide excellent cut protection and heat resistance. It is a lightweight, flexible material commonly used in many applications related to automotive assembly, sheet metal processing and glass processing.
Dyneema: This is the lightest yet super-strength polyethylene fiber. Up to 15 times more powerful than high-quality steel and up to 40% more powerful than aramid fibers by weight. Dyneema® floats in water and is durable, resistant to moisture, UV and chemicals.
Fiber-metal mixture: Durable and cut resistant gloves are made from a fabric mix of Spectra, Kevlar and stainless steel.
Metal Mesh-Interlocked: Stainless steel mesh provides advanced cutting and puncture protection due to its excellent strength.
SuperFabric®- a combination of layers, substrates, surface coatings, thicknesses, etc. with varying levels of perforation, cutting and abrasion resistance, grip and flexibility. Tactile surfaces provide enhanced grip on wet and oily surfaces.
The anti-cutting gloves have five strengths. Level 5 gloves can help keep your hands safe for most tasks.
