EN388 rating based on the number of cycles required to cut through the sample at a constant speed. The protection factor is then indicated on a scale of 1 to 5.
For more than eleven years, Cut Resistant Gloves Review has supplied consumers with reliable reviews based on our intensive research of cutting gloves products. We are a trusted provider of comprehensive product information in the cut resistant field.
Our mission is to find the best cut proof glove that gives the maximum protection without compromising dexterity and flexibility. We examine comfort level, EN388 rating in the cut, puncture, abrasion and tear resistance categories and of course affordability!
EN388 Rating based on the number of cycles required to abrade through the sample glove (abrasion by sandpaper under a stipulated pressure). The protection factor is then indicated on a scale of 1 to 4 .
EN388 rating based on the amount of force required to pierce the sample with a standard sized point. The protection factor is then indicated on a scale of 1 to 4.
EN388 Rating based on the amount of force required to tear the sample. The protection factor is then indicated on a scale of 1 to 4.

Puncture-resistant and cut resistant work gloves and kitchen gloves are used for hand and arm protection in many occupational health, safety and home applications. Puncture-proof gloves are designed for specific applications such as metal fabrication, glass or food handling, household cleaning, working with utilities, harsh & hazardous materials, in construction and in medical facilities. Level five cut resistant gloves are also used to help protect hands and arms from irritations and injuries caused by exposure to a substance. Cut proof gloves come in a variety of materials, thicknesses, sizes, lengths, colors, and styles. Anti-Puncture glove materials such as nitrile, stainless steel mesh, and Kevlar gloves are commonly used for various applications such as mechanical, industrial, and homeland security. Latex, leather, goatskin, vinyl, neoprene, can also be coated or dipped with materials such as nitrile or DuPont Kevlar , and used in cryogenics for low thermal conductivity. Kevlar gloves can provide comfort while protecting hands from glass, abrasives, and other manufacturing conditions. DuPont Kevlar gloves are also heat and cut resistant, and will not melt, catch fire, or conduct electricity. Cut resistant cutting gloves can be made of glass composite yarns as well as stainless steel fibers. Anti-Cut safety gloves can have an inner or outer coating of latex, polyurethane (PE), polyvinylchloride (PVC), nitrile, or another substance to help provide protection. Other synthetic, manufactured fiber materials are used for their high strength and high strength-to-weight ratio. Many no-cut gloves are waterproof or liquid-proof. Slice resistant glove thickness is commonly measured in mil, or thousandths of an inch. As part of personal protection, chemical resistant gloves can provide flame, chemical, puncture, cut, and liquid resistance. Slash resistant gloves may have coated fingertips or textured, coated non-slip surfaces on fingers and palms for securely handling and gripping instrumentation and devices. Slice resistant gloves can have a beaded cuff for strength, or an extended, lined, or gauntlet style cuff to help protect wrists and forearms from splashes or abrasions. Some cut resistant gloves can conform to an American Society for Testing and Materials (ANSI) standard for cut level protection. Cut proof gloves can also meet Federal Drug Administration (FDA) or American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards. Cut proof gloves can also be anti-static.
