PPSS Group unveils Cut-Tex PRO cut-resistance fabric

PPSS Group, UK firm specialising in high performance body armour and protective clothing, has developed a new knitted fabric, Cut-Tex PRO. Cut-Tex PRO is an ultra-high cut resistant fabric, made out of an innovative combination of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) and other technical fibres, made with high-density knitting machines.

Cut-Tex PRO is primarily being used to create slash resistant clothing, effectively helping protect frontline professionals working within hostile environments such as prisons, correctional facilities, homeland security and policing from laceration, subsequent rapid blood loss and death.

Additional key sectors for cut-resistant clothing made from Cut-Tex PRO are flat glass handling, metal sheet pressing, recycling, automotive, and similar industries.

Due to the exceptional tear resistance of Cut-Tex PRO, the fabric is also being used to manufacture tear and bite resistant clothing for mental health care facilities and secure hospital facilities around the world, as well as schools specialised in severe learning disabilities, challenging behaviour, special needs, and autism.

For PPSS, offering cut resistant fabrics such as Cut-Tex PRO to garment manufacturers, means enabling them to incorporate the high-performance material into tactical clothing and uniforms, protecting the wearer from potentially horrendous cut injuries, subsequent rapid blood loss and even death.

All homeland security professionals, dealing regularly with potentially aggressive, hostile, and intoxicated members of the public operate in a reasonably high risk environment and can clearly benefit from the new cut resistant high performance fabric.

Cut-Tex PRO is the world’s best and sets the benchmark, which is reinforced by passing several of the most stringent European, American, and International Standards for cut, tear, and abrasion resistance. (GK)
