These new protective garments have been manufactured by one of Italy’s leading uniform manufacturers and without question will help save lives in the future.

“Dealing with potentially hostile and intoxicated members of the public is not always easy, and we must do everything to improve their personal safety and reduce the risk of workplace violence related injuries and even death”, says Robert Kaiser, CEO of PPSS Group, the firm behind Cut-Tex® PRO.

According to Robert Kaiser, the risk of being cut or slashed is real, and the potential consequences can be severe.

“We strongly believe that uniforms, tactical apparel or other work wear should offer appropriate levels of protection for the Radial Artery, Brachial Artery, Carotid Artery, Axillary Artery and the Femoral Artery.”

“The cutting of any of these key arteries can lead to rapid blood loss and subsequent death within a very few minutes or seconds, in extreme cases.”

Cut-Tex® PRO cut resistant fabric is offering ISO 13997:1999 blade cut resistance level 5, EN 388:2003 blade cut resistance level 5 and ASTM F-1790 level 4.

Cut-Tex® PRO offers 27.8 Newton of blade cut resistance, as well as extraordinary tear and abrasion resistance, making it the ideal fabric to be incorporated into uniform and tactical apparel.

Police, prison, private security, mental health care professionals, and industries, such as glass handling and metal pressing are already benefiting from this great new fabric.

In addition to the above cut resistance level, Cut-Tex® PRO is also offering EN 388:2003 Tear Resistance Level 4 (the highest possible) and EN 388:2003 Abrasion Resistance Level 4 (the highest possible).

Subject to a minimum order volume of 1,000sqm Cut-Tex® PRO can be made available in any colour of choice.

Cut-Tex® PRO is a registered trademark of UK based PPSS Group, and is now available to licensed manufacturers around the world.  PPSS Group welcomes any enquiries with immediate effect.

Cut-Tex® PRO slash resistant fabric is now being used to manufacture some of the most effective high performance cut and slash resistant protective clothing for law enforcement and other homeland security professionals around the world.

Forearm cut injury resulting form an edged weapon attack.

All frontline professionals dealing with potentially aggressive, hostile or intoxicated members of the public are obviously working in a higher risk environment.

We believe personal protective equipment (PPE) or clothing using Cut-Tex® PRO to protect vital areas will improve their personal safety and effectively reduce the risk of workplace violence related injuries or even death in the line of duty.

Many homeland security agencies have now requested that parts of their tactical clothing or uniforms must be lined with an ultra-high resistant fabric such as Cut-Tex® PRO, to protect or shield at least the main four arteries, which are:

  • Radial Artery:  Located in our wrists
  • Carotid Artery:  Located in your throat
  • Axillary Artery:  Located under your arm pits
  • Femoral Artery:  Located in the thigh and groin (inner leg) area

Additional videos will follow shortly, but please view the following brief video highlighting the exceptional cut protection of Cut-Tex PRO:

Cut-Tex® PRO: High Performance Cut Resistant Fabric

I am extremely proud to announce that we have developed our high performance cut resistant fabric Cut-Tex PRO following our great passion to protect frontline professionals all over the world.

Many scientists and specialists within the textile industry continuously seek to improve and develop new equipment and innovative slash and cut resistant clothing… but I am very very confident that we are and we will be leading this industry with immediate effect.

In order to use this cut resistant textile for protective clothing or other applications it had to be tested to British, European and International blade cut resistance standards.  The challenge was to substantiate independently the extraordinary properties of this new cut resistant textile with independent, scientific evidence, and to back up all claims we are making.

Our Cut-Tex® PRO cut slash and cut resistant fabric was subsequently tested to BS EN 388: 2003 6.2 Blade Cut Resistance, and it achieved the highest rating of level 5.  It also reached level 5 when tested to the European and International Standard BS EN ISO 13997:1999, which is highly regarded as the most stringent and efficient standard for blade cut resistance.

These results clearly demonstrate the incredible strength and cut resistant properties of Cut-Tex® PRO, which is now being used to manufacture comfortable cut and slash resistant clothing for security professionals, police, prison and enforcement officers in a number of countries around the World.

Companies from a variety of other sectors have now expressed an interest in this new cut resistant textile Cut-Tex® PRO that appears to take the World over by storm.  Glass handling and metal pressing companies are now able to see its great potential to protect factory workers from potential cuts and injuries, and haulage and truck firms have expressed an interest to line some of their trailer curtains with Cut-Tex® PRO to prevent illegal immigrants from cutting themselves a way into the trucks before crossing borders and entering countries. A problem that has recently become of great concern for many privately owned transport companies, especially here in the UK.

There is no doubt that Cut-Tex® PRO will help to save human lives in the future.  Right now it is all about educating professionals and letting them know that concealable and comfortable cut resistant clothing can be designed, developed and manufactured with the aid of Cut-Tex PRO, the world’s best slash an cut resistant fabric.

We need to stop thinking that everything will be ok.  We need to stop believing that nothing is ever going to go to happen, simply based on that fact that the past has been very kind to us and no one has been injured in OUR company or organisation yet.

I think we all should aim to prevent cut injuries rather than continuing with the habit of fixing things when they have gone wrong.  Cut-Tex® PRO has been developed with exactly this in mind.

PPSS teamed up with Intertek for Cut-Tex® PRO case study

A short while ago we have developed the ultra high cut resistant textile Cut-Tex® PRO, an innovative BS EN 388:2003 blade cut resistance level 5 textile that offers unrivalled cut resistance. In order to use the fabric for bespoke protective clothing this groundbreaking textile needed to be tested.

We turned to Intertek for technical expertise and testing. Intertek is a leading international provider of quality and safety testing and has experts versed in the stringent testing requirements and standards for PPE fabrics.

The challenge was to substantiate independently the extraordinary properties of the material with independent, scientific evidence.

The fabric was tested to BS EN 388: 2003 6.2 Blade Cut Resistance. It achieved the highest rating of Level 5. The fabric also reached Level 5 when tested to the European and International Standard BS EN ISO 13997:1999, which is highly regarded as the most stringent and efficient Standard for blade cut resistance.

However, for us this is not it. We will now continue with testing and submit our textile for the BS EN 533:1997 test (Protective clothing – protection against heat and flame), in order to make this great cut resistant textile more attractive and valuable for fire fighters and other professionals around the world.

Cut-Tex® PRO cut resistant clothing is now available as sweat shirts, windbreaker, sleeves, boxer shorts, workwear trousers, tactical gloves and many other garments. However, PPSS is stressing the point they are specialised in manufacturing bespoke cut resistant clothing based on client’s operational risks and duties.
