Needlestick cut resistance gloves
Gloves Cut Resistance Changes:
“Level F” replaces previous “Level 5”
….Mechanix Needlestick Gloves have level F cut resistance.
The ISO cut score on the new test uses letters rather than numbers. The new levels go from A to F, with A being the lowest level of protection and F scoring the highest.
The marking on the glove will appear as EN388 4.X.4.4.F (X meaning not tested to the old test or blade was blunted during testing and testing was stopped before completion)
The new test (ISO 13997) (now clause 6.3 in EN388:2016) gives a more accurate result and allows for recognition of higher degrees of cut resistance by changing the blade after every cut and using variable levels of force (N) applied to the blade rather than just the 5N in the old test.
