Cuts and lacerations are responsible for nearly 30% of lost-time work injuries in North America, the majority of which are to the hands. Wearing the correct glove is the most critical factor in proper hand protection. It’s even more important to understand cut resistant gloves and the characteristics they hold. Cut-resistant gloves come in various fabrics offering different level of cut resistance. It’s important to consider the requirements of a particular application when choosing a glove material. Transforming Technologies specializes in anti-static gloves which improves the quality of products or solves a process issue.
What Are Cut-Resistant Gloves?
Cut Resistant Gloves can be divided
into three categories based on the materials they are made from: metal mesh
gloves, cut-and-sewn, and seamless knitted gloves.
Metal mesh gloves are a form of chainmail and are made of rings of stainless steel.
Cut-and-sewn gloves can be made using only a cut-resistant material or by using conventional materials with full or palm lining of cut-resistant materials. The materials are cut to shape and sewn into a glove.
Seamless knitted gloves are knitted in one piece and the cut protection is provided by high performance materials such as Para aramid (Twaron, Kevlar), Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE), special PVA yarns (SupraBlock) or steelfibre and fibreglass yarns. The gloves are usually coated with solid or foamed Latex, Nitrile or Polyurethane.
Which Cut Resistant Glove Is Right For Me?
Not all cut-resistant gloves are
created equal and that’s a good thing, depending on the severity of the hazards
that you’re facing. The best rated glove is the one that protects against the
hazards you face. A worker who uses a box cutter once a day doesn’t need the
same protection as someone who works in metal stamping eight hours a day.
Using a glove designed for
heavy-duty cut protection for a light-duty application has a snowballing
effect: If a worker has less dexterity in the glove, they won’t be able to do
their job right. If they can’t do their job right, they won’t wear the glove
and then compliance takes a hit. Then the risk of hand injury skyrockets!
How Are Cut-Resistant Gloves Rated:
There are two common standards used
for measuring the cut-resistant properties of gloves. One used primarily in
North America and the other is used in Europe and Asia.
North American Standard (ANSI/ISEA 105-2016): The protection level is given by a
number between 1 and 9, where 9 indicates the highest cut protection.All gloves are tested on a TDM1000
machine which provides uniform testing.
The glove sample is placed on a conductive strip and loaded onto the TDM-100. When the metal blade touches the metal strip, the test is terminated.
A straight blade is loaded into the machine.
Weight is added to serve as force.
The blade moves across the fabric.
The blade is replaced with a new one to ensure accuracy.
The sample is cut five times, each with three different loads.
The distance traveled to cause cut through at various forces is recorded.
The data is used to determine the load required to cut through the sample.
The glove receives a rating based on the above information between A1 and A9, with A1 being the lowest and A9 being the highest level of cut protection.
European Standard (EN 388): The protection level is given by a
number between 1 and 5, where 5 indicates the highest cut protection. Until 2016,
the Coup Test, as described below, was the only test used under the EN 388
standard. The standard update in 2016 introduced the ISO 13997 concept, which
closely relates to the North American standard test.
A test sample is taken from the palm of a glove.
A rotating circular blade moves back and forth across the test
sample until a cut-through is achieved.
The test sample is compared to a reference material (usually
The reference material and the test sample are cut alternately
until at least five results are achieved.
To help account for a loss is sharpness to the blade, the
reference material is cut before and after the test sample.
The cut resistance is a ratio of the number of cycles needed to
cut through the test sample compared with the reference material.
Can You Wash Cut-Resistant Gloves?
The short answer is yes. Laundering
and dry cleaning have no significant impact on the protective properties of
cut-resistant gloves. Most quality cut-resistant gloves will retain their
protective properties even after ten or more washes. It is important that you
follow manufacturer instructions when washing cut-resistant gloves.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q. Do cut-resistant gloves offer
A. No. Many cut resistant gloves
are manufactured to protect hands from being slashed by sharp objects like
knives/blades. However, they may provide very little or no puncture resistance
from a pointed item, such as a needle.
Q. What is the difference between
puncture resistance and needle or needlestick resistance?
A. Needles are sharp, beveled
cutting instruments designed to pierce the skin. To stop them you need to stop
the cutting action by putting something hard in front of them, such as the
protective guard plates found in SuperFabric® brand materials. ASTM/EN388 test
probes are rounded and tear fabric instead of cutting as it penetrates. This
rounded ASTM/EN388 tip functions more to test bust strength whereas the .25G
medical needle tests true needle resistance. Various testing bodies throughout
the world have acknowledged this deficiency and are adapting standards to meet
this. Two examples are the Canadian research organization IRRST and the ASTM
F23 Standards committee, who are working together to design a standard that
uses the same test procedures as tested herein.
Q. Should cut-resistant gloves be
used to protect one from cuts from powered/mechanical equipment like powered
saws and drills?
A. Most all manufacturers of
cut-resistant gloves will not suggest the use of cut-resistant gloves for
protection against powered devices. Gloves are typically tested for use with
non-powered blades and sharps only.
The use of a glove with powered
equipment could potentially harm an individual. If the moving blade catches the
glove, it could result in a person getting pulled into moving machinery. Moving
machine parts have the potential for causing severe workplace injuries, such as
crushed fingers or hands, amputations, burns, or blindness. Safeguards are
essential for protecting workers from these needless and preventable injuries.
Any machine part, function, or process that may cause injury must be
safeguarded, especially when the operation of a machine or accidental contact
with it can injure the operator or others in the vicinity. These hazards must
be either eliminated or controlled.
Q. What makes HexArmor products
highly cut and puncture resistant?
A. HexArmor® products offer
industry leading cut protection through the innovative configuration of
SuperFabric® technology which provide resistance to lacerations and slashes
like no other material on the market. Typical cut-resistant products are made
of high performance yarns such as Kevlar®, Dyneema®, or Spectra®. While blends
of these technologies protect users from straight edged cut hazards, they do
not offer sufficient protection from variable hazards such as metal burrs,
wires, or slivers.
ESD jackets, also commonly known as ESD smocks, ESD lab coats or ESD garments, offer protection from electrostatic fields generated by clothing on the user’s body. ESD jackets are worn where ever static damage is a concern. ESD jackets are designed to be antistatic and low tribocharging because they constructed out of polyester or cotton (or a blend of both) impregnated with a grid of woven conductive fibers. The grid creates a “Faraday Cage” effect around the body of the operator that shields charges generated from the operators clothing from damaging ESD sensitive devices.
as part of a complete ESD program.
ESD jackets are the most visible sign of ESD protection and any facility that mandates ESD garments demonstrates a commitment ESD protection. ESD jackets are a recommended addition to a program that already includes typical grounding measures, such as wrist straps and heel grounders. This is because of the potential hazard of the operator’s clothing. The ESD TR20.20-2008 states: “While a person may be grounded using a wrist strap or other grounding methods, that does not mean that insulative clothing fabrics can dissipate a charge to that person’s skin and then to ground. Personnel clothing usually is electrically separate or isolated from the body.”
How To Choose an ESD Jacket?
A quick search online reveals numerous options for ESD jackets. We have summarized the main considerations when choosing ESD jackets:
of ESD Garments
ESD Garments come in many shapes and
sizes. Typical distinctions are:
Fabrics composition will vary by the manufacture but are typically made with a combination of carbon with polyester fabric or a cotton polyester blend. Commonly, the fabrics are described with a percentage. For example, 88% polyester and 12% carbon. Your choice of fabric will be determined by operator comfort and ESD performance. You may choose a lightweight polyester for warmer climates or a cotton polyester blend for cooler climates.
The amount of carbon in the jacket is important to note because this is the element that makes the jacket “ESD safe”. The more carbon, the better the anti-static performance. Lower cost ESD jackets are available with a carbon content of less than 5%, but they may not perform well or last as long as jackets with higher carbon content.
ESD Properties There are three classifications of ESD jackets per ANSI / ESD S20.20: an ESD Garment is defined as either a Static Control Garment (surface resistivity of < 1 x 10^11 ohms resistance); a Groundable Static Control Garment (surface resistivity of < 1 x 10^9 ohms resistance); or a Groundable Static Control Garment System (surface resistivity of < 3.5 x 10^7 ohms resistance).
There are several ways to test an ESD jacket but for general purposes, a sleeve-to-sleeve measurement is the most important. This test is used to confirm electrical continuity across garment panels and sleeve components. At minimum, an ESD jacket must be dissipative (surface resistivity of < 1 x 10^11 ohms resistance). This test is performed with a Surface Resistance Meter. The ESD properties will be included in the data sheet for the ESD jacket from the manufacturer. It is always recommended to regularly test your ESD jackets because wear and tear and laundering will effect the ESD properties over time.
Collar Options Collar options typically include Lapel, V-Neck or Military style. The type of collar you choose will be based on user comfort and sensitivity of the application. The various collars allow more or less clothing to be exposed to your environment. V-Neck collars are the most open and may be cooler to wear. Military Collars covers the most clothing, but may more uncomfortable to wear. Lapel collars are in between the two and are the most commonly used collar.
Sleeve Terminations ESD jackets have either a Snap Cuff or an ESD Knit Cuff. The snap cuff includes three snap that adjusts for a proper fit and are typically cheaper. The three snap cuff is ideal when you already have wrist-straps, or in cases when wearers find the cuffs a little too snug. A wrist strap can be snapped to the garment sleeve and cord is attached at the hip pocket to ground both the person and the jacket.
An ESD Knit Cuff is very similar to the cuff on
the end of a sweatshirt and allows for hands free grounding. ESD Knit cuffs
form a contact path around both of the wearer’s wrists. The garment and wearer can
then both be grounded by attaching a ground cord to the 4mm stainless steel
snaps on the hip pocket.
Short sleeve jackets are also available from
ESD jackets come in three lengths: waist length, 3/4ths and full length. The length you choose depends on the sensitivity
of the application and the comfort of the wearer. Waist length jackets leaves the most clothing
exposed but may be cooler. Full length jackets cover the most clothing by going
down to about the knees and are sometimes referred to as lab coats. 3/4ths length jackets come down to mid-thigh
and are between the waist length and full length.
Colors ESD Jackets come in many colors, with blue the most common. The color has nothing to do with performance and is only preference by the company using them. Many companies will color code their employees with their ESD jackets. For example, employees may wear blue, management wears black and visitors wear white. High-Visibility jackets are available for safety reasons. Color options vary by manufacturer, and by fabric. Jackets may also be died to match company colors but will have a high minimum order quantity.
of ESD jackets
choose to embroidery their company logo or employee name onto their ESD
jackets. Sublimations, screen printing
and patches are also ways to add logos or names.

The conveyor belt is an indispensable part of the automatic transportation equipment. But the conveyor belt can be a major generator static electricity that can cause numerous problems, from static shocks to employees to catastrophic damage to components. The cause of static is friction, and on belt conveyors, the belt surface is continually rubbing the pulley surface, generating static electricity. As the conveyor continues to operate, the static charge will continue to accumulate and increase unless it is bled off (or discharged) in some manner. Conveyor and assembly trays can also create a static charge and shock employees.
Anti-static conveyor equipment exists, so when choosing the conveyor belt, pay special attention to whether the belt has anti-static characteristics. A surface resistance meter can be used to measure the anti-static properties of a conveyor belt. But if your equipment is not anti-static, then you must eliminate static in other ways. The first step in eliminating static is to measure it. If you can feel the static charge or receive shocks, then the charge is already way to high and needs to be addressed. Human feel static at 2000 volts, but components can be damaged with as little as 100 volts. A static field meter can be used to measure the static charge on your conveyor.
Drag chains can be a do-it-yourself solution to drain a charge, but they are not always practical or effective enough. Anti-static ionizers are the most effective method of eliminating static on conveyors. Ionizers blow specialized air that eliminates static charges. They are designed to be mounted overhead, or in targeted areas and can be effective without interfering with the movement of the conveyor or components. Ion bars are excellent for conveyors because they can cover wide areas with a relatively small footprint. A three fan overhead ionizer is also an effective ionizer for conveyors. If the target area for ionization is small, ionizing nozzles can be very effective. They provide a targeted stream of ionized air that can even be activated automatically with a photoelectric eye.
This will vary by application. Mount
ionizers at friction points in your process and the locations of the biggest static
issue. Mount the ionizer as close to the problem area as possible, but not too
close that the ionizer does not have enough time to do its job. If your employees are getting shocked, you
will want to install the ionizer just prior to the employee exposure.
Conveyors generate static due to friction, which can cause numerous problems. Anti-static ionizers are a very effective tool to remove the static charge.
ESD Constant monitors reduce production costs by eliminating the time spent on testing wrist straps before each shift. Further savings may be realized by reduced ESD damage from broken wrist straps. Transforming Technologies manufactures two types of monitors:
Impedance (or single wire) constant monitors
The impedance monitor uses a detection circuit designed to reduce false alarms and eliminate adjustments. It uses the phase difference between current and voltage to detect changes in impedance of the cord, band and person. A very low AC voltage is used for constant sensing. Any standard wristband and coil cord can be used.
Resistance (or Dual Wire) constant monitors
This type of monitor is used with a two wire (dual conductor) wrist strap. When a person is wearing a wrist strap, the monitor observes the resistance of the loop, consisting of a wire, a person, a wrist-band, and a second wire. If any part of the loop should open (become disconnected or have out of limit resistance), the circuit will go into the alarm state. An important feature of the Dual Wire Wrist Strap is that even if one conductor is severed, the operator has reliable path-to-ground with other

Choosing An ESD Floor is an Important Step in Eliminating ESD Damage
An ESD Floor mat is a very important
part of a Static Protected Area. ESD
mats are designed to eliminate static on its surface and of people standing
upon it. A conductive material embedded
within the mat draws in all the static and sends it to ground (earth). This is
usually accomplished by connecting the mat to ground (typically the center
screw of an outlet) with a floor mat ground cord. It’s important to wear ESD
footwear such as heel grounders or ESD shoes when using an ESD floor mat,
otherwise the static will stay on the body.
A quick search online or in ESD
catalogs reveal a myriad of ESD floor mat options. What are the main
considerations in choosing an ESD mat?
Intended Use: Where are you
putting the floor mat? Different styles work best in different locations.
Material: Are you
trying to protect your floors from wear-and-tear? The floor mat material makes
ESD Properties: Not all ESD
floor mats have the same ESD properties.
ESD Mats: Intended Use
ESD mats are generally found in three categories: Anti-Fatigue, Floor Runners and Floor Tiles. The type you choose depends on the intended use: Will people be standing on them for long periods of time? Choose an ESD Anti-Fatigue Mat. Do you need to cover the floor? Will wheeled carts need to roll over them? Choose a ESD Floor Runner. Do you have a large are to cover? ESD Floor Tiles may be your answer.
ESD Mats: Anti-Fatigue Matting
ESD Anti-fatigue mats, research shows, make a more comfortable worker, which makes a more productive worker with fewer injuries and increased productivity! ESD Anti-fatigue comfort mats are essential where workers stand to help ease leg, foot, and lower back fatigue and pain. Anti-fatigue mats come in a variety of styles and thicknesses to meet your needs and budget. Some are made from spongy foam material that is soft to the touch and others are made from rubber that may feel hard at first. You need to stand on a mat for an extended period of time to truly evaluate it. You may have to try our several different types to find the style you prefer.
ESD Mats: Floor Runners
“Floor runner” is a term that is used to describe mats that are long and narrow and that cover large areas. ESD Floor runners are typically found in building entrances, hallways, and in front of long workstations. They are usually thin so as not to be a trip hazard and provide little, to no anti-fatigue comfort. Common ESD Floor runners may have a V-Groove or a smooth surface. Some runners are designed to be durable and ridged enough to to be used with rolling ESD chairs.
ESD Mats: Floor Tiles
In some applications, it is preferable to cover a large section of a
floor or the entire room with ESD matting.
ESD tiles are used like puzzle pieces, interlocking together to build
out large floors. ESD tiles can come in
laminate, vinyl or rubber tiles. Laminate tiles are usually thin and ridged and
many types require you to glue them down. Rubber tiles can be larger and thick
and provide anti-fatigue properties. Some
vinyl tiles are extremely durable, able to withstand forklifts. A benefit of non-glued down ESD tiles is that
they can be disassembled and reconfigured or moved to a new location.
ESD Mats: Composition:
ESD floor mats are usually made from
vinyl or rubber. Vinyl mats may be softer
and less expensive, but are less durable than rubber mats. The most durable
mats are made from rubber in which a single layer is molded into shape. Some
floor mats use both: a durable rubber top layer and a spongy vinyl bottom. These mats may sound like the best of both
worlds, but tend to delaminate over time and fall apart. Thickness, texture, and cushioning of the mat
are also concerns depending on the application.
Regardless of composition, all mats should meet or exceed the
requirements of ANSI ESD-S20.20 (see below).
ESD Mats: Electrical Performance:
All static control mats are not created
equally. The terms insulative, conductive, and dissipative are all terms that
subdivide ESD materials based on their individual surface resistance. Surface
resistance is a measurement of how easily an electric charge can travel across
a medium (Visit here to learn How To Test ESD Mats). For most applications, ESD floor mats
should be in the conductive range. Floor
mats can become dirty over time which effects their ESD properties, so you want
to start with a conductive mat to ensure you are grounded. Conductive materials have a
surface resistance of less than 1 x 10^ 5 ohms/square. Dissipative items have a
surface resistance of more than 1 x 10^ 5 ohms/square but less than 1 x10 ^11
ohms/square. An insulative material is one that has a surface resistance of greater than 1 x 10 ^12
ESD Mats: Sizes:
ESD floor mats typically come in
workstation sized mats such as 2’x3’ and 3’x5’, interlocking sections or in long
rolls. The material is easy to cut and
has a long shelf life so if you have more than one area to cover or expansion
is a possibility, purchase a full roll and cut pieces as needed. Many suppliers also provide ready-to-use
pre-cut mats with grounding hardware already installed. These mats can be more expensive, but it can
also be a great time saver.
When choosing an ESD mat, first use your
specific application to narrow your choices, such as mat material and
electrical properties. Carefully plan
and budget your workstation so that you can choose to purchase a full roll or a
pre-cut mat. Finally, do not let cost
dictate your decision – saving a few dollars on low-quality matting could have
very costly consequences via catastrophic damage, latent failures and customer
