What is HPPE Cut Resistant Gloves?
HPPE, also know as UHMWPE(ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene). HPPE gloves are high-performance polyethylene gloves.
Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene fiber is a kind of high strength and high modulus and good abrasion resistance, cut resistance, chemical resistance fiber, the same strength more than 10 times the cross-section steel wire is also the chemical fiber with the highest specific strength.
There are two production processes:
- One is the Netherlands DSM company with decalin dry spinning process for solvent;
- The other is Honeywell, USA. The company uses white oil as a solvent for the wet spinning process.
Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene fiber cut resistant gloves are super polymers polyethylene filaments and other fibers such as polyester, nylon, spandex, glass fiber or wire, etc., and then weaving through a 13 gauge glove machine made, considering factors such as product slip resistance, moisture resistance and use environment, the gloves need to be dipped and shaped.
In addition, for part of the labor. Special requirements for static electricity in occasions can be added to the weaving of gloves Electric fiber, developing ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene with the antistatic function.
What Level of Cut Resistant Gloves Do I Need?
Level 0: These fabrics offer no protection.
Level 1: These fabrics offer protection for cuts considered to be a nuisance to the wearer, such as paper cuts or automotive maintenance.
Level 2: These fabrics offer protection for low cut hazards such as those that occur in construction, packaging and some masonry work.
Level 3: These fabrics offer protection for moderate cut hazards from jobs such as light-duty glass handling or light metal stamping
Level 4: These fabrics offer protection for high cut hazards from applications such as sheet metal handling or food service.
Level 5: These fabrics offer protection for extreme cut hazards from uses similar to plate glass handling and meat/poultry processing.
When buying cut resistant gloves, you will see that they come with a rating. This is their rating when it comes to their resistance. A pair of gloves with a cut resistance rating of 3 is not as strong as one with a cut resistance rating of 5. You need to assess what kind of work you do and what sort of injuries you subject your hands to, so you can choose the right level that is suitable for your line of work.
The American National Standards Institute or ANSI determines the cut resistance rating of gloves. Since there are no strict recommendations when it comes to the cut resistance levels of gloves needed for different applications, employers will then have to look at the standards and distinctions set by ANSI to determine what protection they can provide.
Level 1 or A1 anti-cut gloves have the lowest rating. They are only capable of withstanding cuts inflicted by 200 g to up to 499 g of load. It has an abrasion resistance of less than 100 cycles and a puncture resistance of no more than 10 Newtons. This can be great for all around appliances that don’t require heavy usage of sharp objects and equipment.
If you don’t often work with sharp objects, this should suffice. Many industries also prefer this, especially those industries that require a good level of hand dexterity. Use this for handling of objects, cleaning work and many other applications that don’t require dealing with sharp tools.
Level 2 or A2 anti-cut gloves have an abrasion resistance of no more than 500 cycles, a cut resistance of no more than 500 grams and a puncture resistance of no more than 20 Newtons.
It is still important to avoid sharp objects when using Level 2 gloves. Although they provide a higher level of protection against abrasions, cuts and punctures, you should still delegate it to simpler tasks. If you need thin and dexterous gloves to work on more intricate protects, this is a good choice. It can be used for a variety of applications and industries such as in packing, automotive work, shipping and warehouses.
Level 3 or A3 gloves enjoy cut resistance of no more than 1000 grams. The same number is used for abrasion resistance in cycles. It also offers 60 Newtons of puncture resistance.
If you deal with sharp tools and blades occasionally but not too often, this is a good level for you to choose. It is preferred by many industries because it sits in the middle of good hand protection and dexterity. It provides a semblance of protection for the hands but it also enables the hands to move freely. This is the level of gloves to look for by people in the construction, electrical and pumping industries.
Level 4 or A4 anti-cut gloves offer up to 3000 cycles of abrasion resistance and up to 1500 grams of cut resistance. They are also capable of protecting you from up to 60 newtons of puncture force.
Since it offers more protection against injuries, it is best used by people who come into contact with sharp objects like knives, glass, and steel on a regular basis. They can be used in construction, steel handing, car and glass industries. If there have been a lot of instances of cuts and lacerations in the work place due to mishandling of sharp tools, get this level of gloves for the employees.
Level 5 or A5 anti-cut work gloves can protect your hands from up to 10000 cycles of abrasions, 3500 grams of cut resistance and 150 newtons of puncture resistance.
This level of anti-cut gloves provides the best protection one can get against lacerations, cuts, abrasions and punctures. As such, it is best used in hazardous work places where employees deal with sharp objects like blades, needles, and glass all the time. The downside to this is that it doesn’t provide that much dexterity, so if you need more flexibility in your hands to accomplish more intricate tasks, going down a level might be better.
Decide what level you need first. Do you need more hand dexterity or you want maximum hand protection? Mull over these things before buying, so the gloves will address your specific needs.
How Cut resistant gloves works？
The reason why cut resistant glove can prevent knife cutting is mainly there are three special materials inside, which are ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene fiber, stainless steel wire, and core yarn. Among them, ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene fiber has impact resistance and cutting resistance, and also has unique advantages in defense against chemical corrosion and wear resistance.
At Everpro Glove, we manufacture cut-resistant gloves, not cut proof gloves and no cut gloves. The distinction is important because an accident can still happen, but by wearing the right level of cut-resistant glove, the injury can be minimized to a few stitches, or less.
The steel wire used for anti cut glove is high-quality stainless steel wire, which is added with rare metal elements such as chromium, manganese, and nickel in the stainless steel material to maximize the requirements of firmness, toughness, corrosion resistance, tensile and cutting resistance, and then special Processed, it feels soft on the hand.
The core-spun yarn used in cut protection gloves is generally made of synthetic fiber filaments with good strength and elasticity as the core yarn, and outer fibers such as cotton, wool, and viscose fiber are wrapped together, and then twisted and spun together. The comprehensive performance of silk core yarn and outer staple fiber.
What are the factors that determine the price of anti cut gloves?
Commercial gloves are used to measure cut resistance according to ASTM F1790-05. ASTM F1790-05 test methods and results are close to the weight of ISO 13997 (g/m2 or oz/yd2). Weight is the weight of the fabric per unit area. Not the entire glove weight. The higher the weight, the stronger the cut resistance, due to the higher use of the material.
This refers to the specific fabric structure. This information is included, such as the type of weaving or weaving, and the number of threads or stitches per inch. This can affect yarn mobility and sample thickness. The thickness of the sample will affect the cut resistance.
Coating (type and weight)
Some coatings have stronger cut resistance than other coatings and thicker coatings provide more material to prevent them from being cut. It is worth noting, however, that in some cases the application of the coating will slightly reduce its cut-resistance compared to the uncoated. This happens mostly in the case of thinner coatings.
These factors also determine the cut resistant gloves cut levels.
What Are Cut Resistant Gloves Made Of?
Before deciding which cut resistant gloves is right for you, it’s important to understand what your options are and how they differ from another. Here are the most common materials used for cut resistant gloves:
It stands for High Performance Polyethylene Gloves. This is a knitted kind of material that has also been incorporated with polyethylene fibers. Its ANSI cut protection is rated from 2 to 5. It is one of the most comfortable types of materials to wear because of its softer feel and its breathability. That said, this material is more ideal for extended wear. It can be used as a primary material for cut resistance but some companies may also use this as a liner in addition to a tougher cut resistance material to provide more protection and to give the inside part of the gloves a softer feel.
Because of these properties, HPPE gloves are all-around materials and can be used for various applications such as HVAC handling and installation, automotive, scrap metal work, machining, wood working, recycling and many others that require extended wear of gloves.
Dyneema is similar to HPPE when it comes to its properties. However, it can be considered a more cut resistant form of HPPE. It is also otherwise known as Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene or UHMWPE. Dyneema is considered the world’s strongest fiber. It has an ANSI cut resistance level of 3 to 5.
What makes this such a top-notch material is its high level of abrasion resistance. It is more than 20 times more resistant to abrasions compared to any kind of fiber out there. It is also up to 15 times more resistant to damage compared to steel. Additionally, Dyneema also boasts of puncture resistance.
It is often compared to Kevlar. But unlike Kevlar, Dyneema is lighter, which is why it is ideal for a wide range of applications. Furthermore, Dyneema has water and moisture resistant properties. It can also float on water and is resistant to UV rays and chemicals as well.
Kevlar is a type of material with a lot of benefits other than being impact, cut and scratch resistant. It is preferred by many industries in providing protection from injuries due to its durability and its lightweight properties. This material also remains stable even when exposed to high temperature. It’s also flexible, which is why it’s a great option for gloves due to the dexterity it can offer. Whether you are working with steel, glass, automotive or metal, you can benefit from wearing gloves with Kevlar materials.
There is a reason why Alycore gloves get one of the highest ANSI cut ratings. It is because it has been incorporated with stainless steel alloy. It’s not just resistant to cuts, it is also resistant to punctures. Although it has stainless steel components, it is surprisingly lightweight. It is also flexible and offers a good amount of hand dexterity. If it gets dirty, just throw it in the washer.
You can find nylon or other synthetic fiber materials out there such as polyamide. Surprisingly, nylon provides a moderate amount of cut resistant. It has a cut resistance rating of 3, so it should be good for applications that don’t require a higher protection such as electronic operations, handling, assembly and many more. It can protect your hands from abrasion as well. Its high level of moisture absorbency also makes this an ideal choice to wear in the summer season. It is also a great choice for those industries that require optimum hand dexterity and sensitivity. However, it isn’t the best when it comes to puncture resistance and protection against more severe cuts.
HPPE Liner Cut Resistant Gloves Advantage
- Excellent protection
Due to the high strength, high modulus, and anti-high molecular weight polyethylene fiber cutting, anti-aging and other characteristics, the main material of the anti-cutting gloves excellent protection properties, especially cut resistance, tear resistance, and friction resistance
- Extremely long service life
The service life of gloves is mainly based on their abrasion resistance. Line distinction, if the glove is used for a period of time, there is a rubber surface falling, finger rupture, etc., the protective function of the glove will decrease. It should be replaced in time.
Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene anti-cutting. The friction resistance of the gloves is more than 70 times that of the cotton gloves, which actually makes the service life is 6 to 10 times.
- Good comfort
The back of this anti cut glove compared to other protective gloves uncoated, breathable and comfortable, with excellent wear resistance and cut resistance sexual, flexible, comfortable to wear, easy to clean, the product’s remarkable characteristics.
It is super wear-resistant, elastic, easy to wear, comfortable and breathable, and does not affect the hand joint movement, easy to operate at work, with better grip force, especially suitable for mechanical processing, operation, and other industry labor protection.
Because the dry spinning fiber has “fine denier high strength, soft hand feeling soft, solvent-free residue, etc. The glove has a softer feel, moisture wicking, and coolness often obvious.
At the same time, dry spinning fibers are also easy to weave into fabrics. used for sewing gloves, protective aprons, etc., or spinning after cutting, Re-processed into a knitted glove with a softer feel and anti-slip function. Further, improve the applicability of the glove.
Another kind cut resistant gloves-Spun Yarn PE
And from last year, we develop the new material called the Breath Cut PE26 fiber. This is spun yarn gloves. Cut through ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene filaments, and then the fiber is blended to make a blended yarn, which is reproduced from staple fiber yarn cut-resistant gloves.
The development of spun yarn gloves changed the filament gloves table. The surface is not smooth enough, and it has the protective properties of the filament because this has been recognized and has been successfully introduced to the market.
Breath Cut PE 26 fiber, which has better cut function can reach ANSI 4 and ISO13997 D grade. What’s more, the liner has a better attachment with the latex, nitrile, and PU deeper than the normal HPPE 30%, which can make the glove lifetime longer than before.
Excellent breathability function, which can quicken moisture wicking function. After the water wash, the liner will keep the same without shrinking. Also, the touch soft feeling is near to the cotton and light-weight. This new material is the technology update.
What are the common types of cut resistant gloves
The common cut resistant work gloves on the market are basically divided into stainless steel gloves, HPPE gloves, steel gloves, Kevlar gloves, and other cut-proof gloves. The life of a pair of cut off gloves is equivalent to 500 pairs of ordinary line gloves, which is extraordinary. Cut resistance and wear resistance.
Stainless steel gloves
Wire gloves are made up of tiny stainless steel rings that are linked together. It is characterized by the highest level of cut protection and is resistant to some of the higher cutting forces, but the disadvantages are that it is too bulky and expensive.
The cut-proof rating of HPPE gloves is different. Usually, these gloves have three levels and five levels. In the fifth grade, the glass fiber is usually added to the glove to achieve cut resistant gloves level 5. The HPPE material also can be used as kitchen cut resistant gloves. HPPE gloves palm immersion PU glue gloves are more common. HPPE cut resistant glove is the most popular in the world now. Also for the best cut resistant gloves for our manufacturer. Level 5 cut resistant gloves, Level 4 cut resistant gloves, Level 3 cut resistant gloves can suitable most work needs.
The main function of the wire gloves is the small wire composition contained in it. It is usually made into a covered yarn and then woven into a glove. This glove is hard.
Kevlar cut resistant gloves are made of patented Kevlar yarns produced by DuPont. They are woven into protective gloves. Yellow is common and each glove carries the kevlar trademark. This glove is not only cut-proof but also heat-insulating, but it is easy to change color in the air. Kevlar gloves are further processed into a palm cover, with a tiger’s mouth reinforced or palm dipped. They all extend the life of the glove. High strength and lightweight. The equivalent weight of KEVLAR is 5 times that of steel wire. KEVLAR provides excellent cut resistance without compromising hand flexibility while being lightweight and comfortable to wear. KEVLAR cut resistance gloves cut level is minimally affected by washing.

Two Main Cut Level Standard
For the Cut performance, in the market now mainly have 2 standards.
One is The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has released a new edition of the ANSI/ISEA 105 STANDARD-2016.ANSI standards feature nine cut levels that reduce the gaps between each level and better define protection levels for the cut resistant glove and sleeves with the highest gram scores.
Another one is Europe standard EN388, but now EN388 standard allows for highly cut resistant materials to be tested using the ISO13997 test method ISO 13997 testing is similar to ASTM F 1790 testing in that a straight blade is drawn across a piece of fabric as increasing force is applied to the blade. The Cut lever for 13997 is from A to F grade.
The Usage Of The Cut Resistant Gloves
High dexterity cut resistant gloves are widely used automotive shipbuilding, glass manufacturing cutting, and handling, steel sheet finishing, machinery manufacturing, assembly operations, metal processing, precision grinding, construction, cargo handling, slaughtering, material sorting, metal processing, metallurgy, sheet metal work, car repair, and field protection and disaster relief and so on
The Main Cut Resistant Glove We Produces Now:
For the cut glove, mainly have 4 types, the details as below :
- The anti-cut liner without any coating. The cut level usually is 5 and TDM(13997) is C grade, for ANSI level is 3. The special fiber(no toxic) can reach the food grade, so it is widely used as kitchen cut resistant gloves that protect your hands from the sharp objects. For the food grade usually for meat and seafood process. And for the general grade usually can be used the cutting, grinding, glass processing, metal processing, engraving, craft processing, etc. The glove’s feeling is cool and without the coating its good breathability and soft to wear. Also, they are washable and can recycled use.
- The cut-proof liner with PU coated no cut gloves. This is the most popular and hot sale design. 13gauge liner with grey or black PU coated is the most classic type. For more thinner and super touch feeling, the knitting gauge also can be 15 gauge or 18 gauge ). The cut glove with PU coated cut proof glove is lightweight, super thin feeling, anti-static. Also, the price is reasonable. For the liner, any color(including the high viz type) is can be customized. The pepper and salt color is the most common one.
- The cut 3 or cut 5 level liner with latex coated cut proof gloves. As the good elasticity and good grip feature, latex rubber can be crinkle coated, sandy coated and foam coated. Also for different usage also can be palm coated, half coated and double layer coated.
- The anti-cut liner with Nitrile coated cut-resistant gloves. For the nitrile, the most advantage is the high performance of abrasion and oil proof function.
The cut-off glove with nitrile can be nitrile smooth coated .nitrile foam coated, and nitrile sandy. For the coated position, it can be the palm coated, half coated and fully coated.
