CUT PROTECTION

If you’re not wearing cut protective gloves – Then what kind of protection are you wearing?

G-Tek® represents the Safety industry’s most comprehensive line of Coated Seamless Knit gloves. For over 30 years, PIP has invested in G-Tek products evolving them from simple cotton knits to the most advanced gloves, combining engineered yarns, advanced ergonomic design and coating elastomers.

Maxiflex® Cut is the perfect synergy of ergonomics along with proprietary manufacturing and materials to produce, what everyone agrees are: The World’s Most Comfortable Gloves.

ADVANCED FIBER & YARN TECHNOLOGIES
TO MEET EVERY NEED


G-Tek® PolyKor™ Xrystal™ represents the latest iteration of PolyKor™ in which it is combined with naturally hardened crystalized minerals. The result is a super tough, durable, cut resistant fiber.


Optimize performance, function, and protection using proprietary blends of select fibers to exceed industry standards. The ultimate objective is affordable cut resistant gloves for practically every application.


The latest breakthroughs in nanofabrication has resulted in Suprene™ – an affordable fiber with unparalleled strength and physical properties.


G-Tek® Kev™ takes the power of DuPont™ Kevlar® and combines it with metal core technology for maximum cut strength and protection in light heat applications.


Embedded micro-particles strengthen fibers by up to two times, for higher cut scores. 3GX® offers cool touch comfort and lightweight for improved productivity.


Synergize proprietary yarns with advance glove design - applying coatings technologies and processes that are above-and-beyond conventional coatings and manufacturing processes.

HAND TRAUMA
COMES IN MANY FORMS

G-Tek® and MaxiFlex® Cut™ Resistant gloves are designed to help protect against multiple forms of hand trauma.

DETERMINE
CUT RISK

INCISION

Cut caused by razor sharp edge – wound is “neat” and edges of the skin are smooth

LACERATION

Cut caused by jagged or rough edge – wound is torn open and edges of the skin are rough

ABRASION

Wound in which skin is scraped or rubbed off by a flat rough edge

CONTUSION

Wound where skin is not penetrated, blood vessels under skin are broken. Typically caused by impact

PIP INTRODUCES THE WORLD TO THE
CUT RISK HAZARD MATRIX

The CUT Risk Hazard Matrix™ is a unique and logical method to guide users in selecting a glove or sleeve with the right cut resistant material and score. Once a safety manager can identify where their application fits on the CUT Risk Hazard Matrix™, they can more confidently correlate the task to the glove or sleeve best suited for their job.



CALCULATING THE
CHR:FACTOR™

We’ve equated cut score factors with real world tasks and applications as examples. By plotting the tasks and applications, we determine a CUT Risk Hazard Factor™ (CRH: Factor™). The CRH: Factor™ is a comparative indicator that helps safety managers determine the level of potential hazard related to the task or application.



CONFIDENCE IN CHOOSING THE RIGHT PROTECTION
CUT RISK HAZARD SELECTOR™

We’ve plotted select PIP Cut Resistant gloves to demonstrate how the CRH: Factor™ quickly helps in assessing the optimal product for the specific job conditions. Our goal is to guide safety managers to actual product selection.
