About This Item


Full Description

This International Standard specifies a cut test method, and related calculations, for use on materials and assemblies designed for protective clothing. The test determines resistance to cutting by sharp edges, such as knives, sheet metal parts, swarf, glass, bladed tools and castings.

This test does not provide data on the resistance to penetration by pointed objects such as needles and thorns. The test described in this International Standard is not considered suitable for testing materials made from chain mail and metal plates. The text of this International Standard does not include provisions for the safeguard of the operator.
