- EN-388 Cut Level 2 meets ISU standard:
Cut Resistant Clothing
No limitations will be imposed on the manufacture of protective competition
clothing/uniforms other than, at a minimum, the material must comply with Standard
EN388. A close study of the implementation process, the world wide availability of cut
resistant clothing/uniforms and practical experiences has resulted in a reconsideration of
the requirements. The cut resistant material used in protective clothing according to this
ISU Communication must meet as a minimum requirement the Level 2 Standard
according to EN388 in a cut resistance test (resistance to cutting by sharp objects). Cut
resistant protection may be either integrated in the actual competition uniforms, or be
worn as special underwear.

Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene
Our cut resistant socks are made with Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene fiber is abbreviated as UHMWPE, which has excellent properties such as high strength, impact resistance, abrasion resistance, self-lubrication, chemical corrosion resistance, low temperature resistance and so on. It is an ideal material for artificial joint prosthesis, and is also widely used in aviation, medical transplantation, textile industry, paper making and many other fields. There are two production processes: one is the dry spinning process with decalin as solvent by DSM Company of the Netherlands, and the other is the wet spinning process with white oil as solvent by Honeywell Company of the United States. The fiber prepared by dry spinning has the characteristics of “fine denier and high strength, soft feeling, good spinnability and no solvent residue”, etc. The fiber is processed into cut-resistant gloves which have softer handle, better moisture absorption and perspiration effect and comfortable to wear (Wang and Zhang, 2020). The molecular weight of UHMWPE is more than 1 million, which is a kind of milky white powder with linear and high density, its structure is regular and easy to crystallize, the molecular chain in the crystal lattice is a plane zigzag shape, and there are no polar groups in the molecular chain, while its reaction activity is lower than that of PPTA. For this reason, people have carried out research work on fiber surface treatment, such as flame oxidation, chemical corrosion, low temperature plasma treatment and so on, in order to overcome this shortcoming of UHMWPE fiber.
