Technology advances over the last decade have seen other manufacturers producing higher cut rated gloves enhanced by the addition of Steel or Glass fibres combined with high strength H.P.P.E.
This type of knitted liner manufacture has restrictions in protection and comfort such as lack of flexibility, electrical conductivity, or hot/cold temperature transfer in the case of steel liners. As for glass composite H.P.P.E, the glass filament strands break up in fold areas over time with use / laundering and provide reduced levels of cut resistance accordingly.
PIP’s PolyKor® with X7™ Technology (with no Steel or Glass fibre) represents the latest in engineered yarn development. This super lightweight with extreme fibre strength, fine thread 18 gauge reinforced yarn provides very high cut resistance and durability by way of this unique proprietary fibre.
