Cut-Tex® PRO | A Life Saving Bite And Cut Resistant Fabric
Many of our friends, customers and followers have asked us the question: “What is BitePRO® clothing made from?”. The very short answer is from Cut-Tex® PRO, a fully certified and properly field-tested and ultra-reliable bite and cut resistant fabric.
At the very early stages of our fabric, Cut-Tex® PRO was solely used to create SlashPRO® Slash Resistant Clothing, protecting frontline professionals serving in homeland security, law enforcement, prison services, border force, immigration, customs, covert police, counter terror units, surveillance etc.
When testing our fabric against all key international blade cut resistance standards, it became known that Cut-Tex® PRO really is as good as it gets.
Cut-Tex® PRO Cut Resistant Fabric – Performance Levels
- ASTM F-2992-15 Blade Cut Resistance Level A5
- EN 388:2016 Blade Cut Resistance Level E (TDM 100 Test)
- EN 388:2016 Blade Cut Resistance Level 5 (Coup Test)
It also reached Cut Level 5 when tested against the stringent International Standard BS EN ISO 13997:1999.
Within a very short period of time, several requests from high secure, and mental health care facilities came in, asking if our cut resistant fabric could also prevent human bites from penetrating the potential wearer’s skin? We knew the answer was ‘yes, of course’ and substantial tests concluded the very same. The rest, one may say, is history.
Since then, thousands of mental health care nurses, psychiatric social worker, special educational needs teachers, care home professionals and many others have chosen to invest in BitePRO® Bite Resistant Clothing in order to prevent bite injuries, infections and trauma.
The fact that Cut-Tex® PRO scores a pH value of 6.6 (a pH value very similar to that of water) means our garments can also be worn right against the skin, with an exceptional low risk of skin irritation.
Many professionals within the global apparel, workwear and uniform textile industry are aiming to develop ‘better’, more user friendly and more reliable protective clothing and have recently decided to utilise our highly acclaimed bite and cut resistant fabric.
