Cut-Tex® PRO is an ultra-high cut resistant fabric, made out of an innovative combination of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) and other technical fibres weaved by special high-density knitting machines.
Cut-Tex® PRO is British made (manufactured in the United Kingdom) ultra-high performance cut and slash resistant fabric, offering the highest level of cut, abrasion and tear resistance, according to the British and European BS EN 388:203 as well as ISO 13997:1999 and ASTM F-1790 standard.
Most Kevlar® fabrics offer an ISO 13997:1999 blade cut resistance level 2 and in very rare occasions level 3 (on a scale of 1 to 5). Cut-Tex® PRO fabric as a stand-alone fabric offers the highest cut resistance level 5, which makes it 5 times more cut resistant than Kevlar® products rated level 3 at 5N.
Cut-Tex® PRO is manufactured at a UK based ISO 9001:2008 quality standard controlled manufacturing facility.
Cut-Tex® PRO has countless potential applications. It is primarily being used to create cut and slash resistant clothing, to protect homeland security professionals, such as law enforcement, prison, and private security and immigration officers, as well as public transport employees from cut/slash related injuries (lacerations) subsequent rapid blood loss and potential death. Additional key sectors for cut resistant clothing made out of Cut-Tex® PRO are flat glass handling, metal sheet pressing and similar industries.
Due to the exceptional tear resistance of Cut-Tex® PRO, this fabric is also being used to manufacture tear and bite resistant clothing for mental health care facilities and secure hospital facilities around the world, as well as schools specialised in severe learning disabilities, challenging behaviour, special needs and autism. Even if Cut-Tex® PRO cannot stop the sometimes severe bruising following a human bite, it will eliminate the risk of potentially severe infections following the skin penetration of a human bite.
Most recently Cut-Tex® PRO is being used to create cut resistant seating within public transport, cut resistant back packs or cases for travellers, and cut resistant clothing for ice hockey and ice speed skating. Many other tests around the world are currently conducted to establish additional potential applications.Google+
