The Evolution of Hand Protection

Technology Meets Cut Protection

As technology has evolved so has hand protection. Technical fabrics such as HPPE and other sophisticated yarns made with blends of Kevlar®, Nylon and steel wire have improved glove performance. 

Through a combination and thickness of materials and increasing the material’s weight per yard, today’s cut resistant gloves offer increased hand protection. 

ANSI/ISEA 105 (2001/2011) had five cut-level ratings of how gloves were classified, based on test results, which were changed in 2016, the five changed to nine cut-levels to better identify users with improved performance levels of cut protection for a glove.
