Cut injuries are the most frequent cause of accident injuriesIngeneral, hand injuries account for almost 1/3 of all reported injuries, so in hand injuries cut injuries are the front-runner among hand injuries with 50%. Cut protection gloves are available in different materials, which offer a higher or lower cut protection.
A distinction is made here between light cut protection, medium and high cut protection. In principle, further requirements at the workplace must be taken into account when selecting the glove house.
Sensitivity, moisture protection, grip and product protection.
However, the most important factor of all is the cut resistance of the gloves themselves. If the risk assessment has resulted in a certain value, it is still not easy to find the suitable one on the basis of the cut protection values printed on the gloves. Light Cut Protection: Level 1,
Medium Cut Protection: Level 2 + 3,
Heavy Cut Protection Level 4 + 5

Genaure Information on linings and coating materials for cut-resistant glovesLining materials:Dyneema enables the manufacture of thin, flexible and durable gloves with extremely good cut protectionThe Dyneema Diamond Technology is the new generation of cut-resistant fibers, perfect for harsh environments in which the release of fibrous glove material is strictly prohibited, such as in the automotive industry. Kevlar fibre (combines heat resistance and cut protection) is a cut resistant fibre that we use for various gloves. The material is heat resistant and can be exposed to high temperatures for long periods without damage.
CRF The Cut Resistant Fibre (
CRF) technology is designed to provide exceptional dexterity, which is unusual for a high performance cut protection glove. Coating materials
:Polyurethane (PU) offers excellent grip in both
wet and dry environments. It is less effective against the penetration of dampness.
Nitrile rubber (NBR) has a high resistancehbto penetration, offers sufficient grip and is effective against the penetration of dampness.
Nitrile foam is supple and offers good grip. Also provides good protection against moisture penetration.
Latex/natural rubber (NR) is highly elastic and offers good grip, but is sensitive to UV light.
Polyvinyl chloride (OVC/Vinyl) is suitable for heavy and wet work.
