Cut resistance fabrics find varied applications

15
Jan '10
There is a requirement for fabrics that resist cuts and abrasions, which occur when it comes in contact with a knife, a tool or items all having sharp edges.

Cut resistant fabrics are useful for making protective clothing such as gloves used in meat cutting industry and for handling metal, and glass articles, making sportswear, automobile upholstery and for packaging materials.

These fabrics are made with polymeric and non polymeric high performance fibres such as high tenacity polyester, nylon, loyotropic polymer fibres, gel spun fibres and thermo tropic liquid crystal polymer fibres.

New products are also made with core and wrapped yarns by suitable combination of specialty fibres and yarns in different fabric weaves.

The level of cut resistance provided by the reinforcing yarns depends on the way in which they are incorporated in the textile substrate. Large number of alternatives are available for developing cut resistant textiles.
