Cut-Tex® PRO is an ultra-high performance cut and slash resistant fabric, produced in the United Kingdom. Cut-Tex® PRO is offering over 30N of cut resistance according to the widely respected ISO 13997:1999 standard. According to the new ANSI/ISEA 2016 standard using the ASTM F2992-15 test protocol and the Tomodynamometer (TDM-100) apparatus, Cut-Tex® PRO is offering approx. 3,000 grams of cut resistance.
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 at least 5 times more cut resistant than Kevlar® products rated level 3 at 5N.
Cut-Tex® PRO has primarily been designed to act as an effective, reliable and comfortable shield, protecting vulnerable areas of the human body, in particular the Radial, Brachial, Carotid, Axillary and Femoral Arteries from laceration and the wearer from rapid blood loss and potential death.
