High Cut Resistance Gloves
Cut resistant gloves are becoming the new norm for jobsites, preventing avoidable injuries to employees.
Manufacturing technology advances over the last decade have seen 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 certain 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 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 light-weight and thin, 18 gauge reinforced yarn provides very high cut resistance and durability by way of proprietary fibre.
When choosing the right cut resistant gloves, you need to consider the risks in your environment to find the glove that suits your job. Read our tips for choosing the right cut resistant glove here.

The 2020 Australia Standards / New Zealand Standards is identical with the 2016 European Standard. Testing protective gloves against mechanical risks of abrasion, blade cut, tear, puncture and if applicable, impact. The American National Standard is also now in-line with the European Standard for cut resistance when converting Newtons to grams. With the ANSI/ISEA 105 standard measuring further, up to 6000+ grams.
