Dyneema® Diamond Technology & the Latest ANSI/ISEA 105 – 2016 Standard
The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and International Safety Equipment Association (ISEA) have released new cut standards for safety gloves, known as ANSI/ISEA 105-2016. Learn more about these changes, which include new classification levels and a new scale to determine cut score (commonly referred to as the ANSI cut score), and a revised method for testing gloves to the standard.
Up to Level A4 protection with Dyneema® Diamond Technology without glass, basalt or steel fiber reinforcements
Achieving cut scores that qualify for classification above the new ANSI/ISEA level A4 can require the introduction of materials that add stiffness, reduce dexterity and cause skin irritation. That’s why proper glove selection should only use cut levels as a guideline, and start with the analysis of actual workplace cut hazards.
