Cut-proof gloves are necessary protective equipment for practitioners in manufacturing industries such as garment production, meat factory and machinery and equipment manufacturing, metallurgical industry, engineering and construction, laminated glass, sheet metal production and processing, etc. They are labor protection supplies for manufacturing industries such as petrochemical equipment, smelter mining, meat cutting, laser cutting processing of metal materials, disaster relief and rescue.
At present, the common cut-resistant gloves on the market are divided into stainless steel plate gloves, HPPE gloves, steel wire gloves, Kevlar gloves and other materials of cut-resistant gloves, the use period of a pair of cut-resistant gloves is equivalent to 500 pairs of general wire gloves, which have incomparable cut-resistant properties and wear resistance.
Stainless steel plate gloves
Wire gloves are made of fine stainless steel plate rings connected to each other. It features the greatest level of cut resistance and can withstand some of the more risky laser cutting forces, but the drawback is that they are excessively heavy and expensive.
HPPE gloves are different levels of cut resistance. Generally these gloves have three levels, five levels of points. HPPE gloves palm dipped PU gloves are more common.
The key effect of steel wire gloves is the fine stainless steel wire component, which is usually made of compound yarn first and then woven out of the glove. These gloves are hard.
Kevlar gloves are manufactured by the United States DuPont company's patented technology Kevlar cotton yarn woven protective gloves, yellowish, each glove contains the kevlar logo, this glove is not only cut-resistant and heat insulation, but exposed to the air is very easy to lose color. Kevlar gloves are further processed into palm cover, palm lift or palm polypropylene filament. They are able to increase the service life of the gloves.
Cut-resistant gloves level division
In fact China has long had specific specifications to define the level of cut-resistant gloves, in the national standard GB24541-2009 arm safety protection machinery and equipment injury protection gloves standard has been done requirements. But Chinese manufacturers of cut-resistant gloves still follow the policies and regulations of the EU countries to promote the planning of their own gloves, which actually do not meet the requirements.
Regardless of China's norms or the EU national policy and regulations, the cut-resistant gloves are divided into five levels of cut resistance. Consumers in the purchase of such protective gloves before as far as possible or first to establish which level of cut-resistant gloves they actually must, to prevent blindly follow the trend to buy.
The more widespread cut-resistant gloves cut-resistant specification is the British EU BS EN388 (equivalent to the Australian / British specification AS/NZS 2161.3). The specification contains four types of reflective risk, namely corrosion resistance, cut resistance, tear resistance and puncture resistance. Cut resistant gloves are marked with the shield symbol of the blacksmith's hammer image and are rated from 1 to 4, with cut resistance rated up to a maximum of 5.
In some cases "x" and "0" are also used, each indicating unsuitability and a rating of less than "1". Cut resistant gloves also need to meet the general, comfort and efficiency, test procedures and labeling and material requirements of BS EN420, such as the relevant water penetration, the amount of hexavalent chromium released from cloth gloves, etc.
Cut-proof gloves as a special labor protection products in the cut-proof test, in the glove palm sample, tungsten steel material rotating cutting knife back and forth cross laser cutting, and record the speed necessary to cut through the sample plate, in order to check the results of the standard cotton sample plate in addition to the overlapping test, the higher the index value calculated, the stronger the cut-proof characteristics. However, the cut-proof test is not applicable to very hard materials.
