PPSS developed the ultra high cut resistant textile Cut-Tex PRO. In order to use the fabric for bespoke protective clothing this groundbreaking textile needed to be submitted for testing. Intertek was charged with conducting these tests.

With a passion to protect frontline personnel at work, PPSS continuously seek to improve and develop new equipment and innovative cut resistant clothing.

A short while ago PPSS developed the ultra high cut resistant textile Cut-Tex PRO, an innovative BS EN 388:2003 blade cut resistance level 5 textile that offers unrivalled cut resistance. In order to use the fabric for bespoke protective clothing this groundbreaking textile needed to be tested.

Robert Kaiser, CEO of PPSS said: “We turned to Intertek for technical expertise and testing. Intertek is a leading international provider of quality and safety testing and has experts versed in the stringent testing requirements and standards for PPE fabrics”.

“The challenge was to substantiate independently the extraordinary properties of the material with independent, scientific evidence”.

The fabric was tested to BS EN 388: 2003 6.2 Blade Cut Resistance. It achieved the highest rating of Level 5. The fabric also reached Level 5 when tested to the European and International Standard BS EN ISO 13997:1999, which is highly regarded as the most stringent and efficient Standard for blade cut resistance.

“The result demonstrated the incredible strength and cut resistant properties of the fabric, and I am very happy that Intertek has helped PPSS to prove its claims with technical testing and expertise”.

Robert Kaiser added: “For us this is not it. We will now continue with testing and submit our textile for the BS EN 533:1997 test (Protective clothing - protection against heat and flame), in order to make this great cut resistant textile more attractive and valuable for fire fighters and other professionals around the world”.

Cut-Tex PRO cut resistant clothing is now available as sweat shirts, windbreaker, sleeves, boxer shorts, workwear trousers, tactical gloves and many other garments. However, PPSS is stressing the point they are specialised in manufacturing bespoke cut resistant clothing based on client's operational risks and duties.
