How to choose cut-resistant gloves


How to choose cut-resistant gloves

Cut-resistant gloves are highly abrasion-resistant and cut-resistant hand protective gloves that provide effective protection for hands. Its excellent anti-cut performance and wear resistance make it a high-quality hand protection product. The service life of a pair of anti-cut gloves is equivalent to 500 pairs of ordinary thread gloves, which can be described as "cheap and good". It is widely used in meat cutting, glass processing, metal processing, petrochemical industry, disaster relief, fire rescue and other industries.

There are many types of cut-resistant gloves on the market, and they are managed by a standard testing system. Among them, EN388 is one of the European standards, formulated by the latest version EN388:2003 approved by the European Normative Association (CEN) on July 2, 2003. This standard mainly covers the specifications, test methods, labeling and user manuals on the safety prevention of reflection damage of labor protection gloves in the glove practicality standard EN420.

The EN388 standard contains four basic test properties:

1. Wear resistance: friction test by applying known pressure (9 kPa) to glove raw material sample (6.45 cm²), 100, 500, 2000 and 8000 turns respectively, and determine the performance level based on the minimum number of coil turns . For example, if breakage occurs after 500 friction tests, the material has a wear resistance performance level of Level 1, and so on.

2. Cut resistance test: Use 5 grams of white nylon specification to apply continuous force to test two samples, and determine the grade based on the number of coil turns endured before cutting.

3. Resilience test: Take the palm samples from four gloves, two of them are tested in the direction of the sleeve, and the other two are tested in the direction of the palm width, and the tear is accurately measured at a speed of 100 mm/min. The force required for the sample.

4. Puncture resistance test: Use aramid fiber 1414 fabric, also remove samples from the palms of four gloves, pierce the samples with steel nails at a speed of 100 mm/min, and measure the required force.

Anti-cut gloves are usually divided into two types: one is safety protective gloves used in industrial production, which are widely used in food engineering, biotechnology, electronics industry, industrial equipment safety, tempered glass industry and other fields; the other is police gloves. Equipment-type safety protective gloves are mainly used in earthquake relief, emergency rescue, fire rescue and other fields.
