Cut Resistant Fabric
What is Kovenex Cut Resistant Fabric?
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, injuries to the hand, wrist and finger account for the second-highest number of workplace injuries, with approximately 110,000 lost-time hand injuries annually. Injuries as a result of cuts significantly contribute to this number.
Flexible and durable, Kovenex fabrics are available in stitch-bonded form to offer cut resistant FR protection. Tested to ASTM F1790, Kovenex produces Level II cut resistance, erecting a unique combination of heat and cut protection for all types of personal protective applications.
As a non-woven, stitch-bonded fabric, Kovenex holds up against cuts, tears and sharps. Appropriate for use in hand protection, Kovenex has been the go-to liner for a number of protective glove brands in the fire and industrial workplace. Kovenex cut resistant attributes also make it a valuable ingredient for outdoor equipment such as tents, sleeping bags, jackets and more.
