Cut Resistant Gloves
Cut-resistant gloves are used when workers are at risk to be sliced or cut by equipment or the products they are handing. For food processing, industrial or assembly applications, using gloves with Kevlar or Dyneema fibers are preferred because of their comfort level. There also are Kevlar knit gloves containing metal fibers that offer higher cut-resistance properties. And for the highest degree of cut resistance, there are heavy, metal mesh gloves used within the meat and poultry and food preparation industries. One final comment regarding cut-resistant knit gloves used in food prep and processing: it is preferred if the gloves are made with a continuous filament, cut-resistant fiber (not spun fiber) for an easier to clean glove.
