Cut-resistant gloves are a type of safety glove that are designed to provide protection against cuts and punctures. They are commonly used in industries such as construction, manufacturing, and food processing, where workers may be exposed to sharp tools, machinery, or materials.
Cut-resistant gloves are typically rated on a scale of 0 to 5, based on their level of cut resistance. Level 0 gloves provide no cut resistance, while Level 5 gloves provide the highest level of cut resistance. The rating is based on standardized tests that measure the amount of force required to cut through the glove material.
