As a leading innovator in the hand protection market, MCR Safety has developed a completely new type of cut-protective yarn.
Based on scientific techniques never previously explored, this yarn is unique and unrivalled for its cut protection and comfort.
The new yarn can be manufactured to produce safety gloves with a range of different specifications and cut resistance levels.
How is the new cut fibre different?
Our advanced fibre filament uses micro-reinforcements. These ultra-thin fibres deliver high levels of cut protection without including any glass fibre.
They’re thoroughly tested, and we can clearly demonstrate the new yarn’s superiority in all round performance and durability. With the added benefits of being smooth, comfortable, flexible, and dexterous.
No Fibre Glass.
Protective gloves are generally blended with fibre glass to achieve high levels
of cut protection economically. These materials do fortify the glove but will
not withstand heavy usage or repeated cleaning due to the brittle nature of
their structure. They become fractured causing particles to break free and make
contact with the skin. This causes irritation and, in some cases, it can
actually cause an allergic reaction. In a relatively short time this breakdown
will drastically reduce the cut-resistant performance of the glove so it will no
longer offer adequate protection for the hand. Resulting in the safety glove
being replaced regularly.
