UCi Prokut X5 Kevlar Cut Level E Heat Resistant Gloves

The UCi Prokut X5 Kevlar Cut Level E Heat Resistant Gloves are highly protective and extremely comfortable because they're made from a soft Kevlar yarn that's interwoven with stainless steel. The Level E Cut Resistance means they can withstand a downward force of up to 22 Newtons from the point of a knife and the Level 1 Contact Heat Resistance allows you to come into contact with materials with a maximum temperature of 100°C for up to 15 seconds.

How Do the Prokut X5 Kevlar Gloves Protect Your Hands?

The Prokut X5 Kevlar gloves provide an impressive combination of Level E Cut Resistance and Level 1 Contact Heat Resistance. The Kevlar aramid fabric interwoven with steel fibres is also highly resistant to tears, improving the durability of these gloves and keeping your hands safer for longer.

Performance Ratings

For a glove to be sold as a safety garment in Europe, the fabric used in its manufacturing process must first be tested to determine the level of protection it provides. Please view the information below to see how the Prokut X5 Kevlar Gloves performed when tested:

EN 388 (Protection Against Mechanical Risks)

  • EN 388: 1X41E

EN 388 is a European regulation governing the sale of gloves used for safety and protection. It determines the gloves' performance when used for protection against mechanical machinery by measuring the fabric's abrasion, cut, tear and puncture resistance.

Standard Resistance Rating
Abrasion Resistance Level 1
Cut Resistance N/A
Tear Resistance Level 4
Puncture Resistance Level 1
ISO Cut Resistance Level E

EN 407

  • EN 407: X1XXXX

EN 407 is a European safety regulation governing the sale of gloves and garments that are resistant to any number of fire, heat and molten related hazards. Please view the table below to find out more:

Standard Resistance Rating
Burning Resistance N/A
Contact Heat Resistance Level 1 (100°C)
Convective Heat Resistance N/A
Radiant Heat Resistance N/A
Resistance to Small Molten Splashes N/A
Resistance to Large Molten Splashes N/A

Suitable Applications and Professions

See below for a list of professions that we believe the Prokut X5 Kevlar Gloves are suitable for:

Key Features and Attributes

  • Incredible Level E cut-resistance rating for protection against blades
  • Withstand contact heat of 100°C for up to 15 seconds
  • Reinforced thumb crotch protects an inherently vulnerable area
  • Kevlar aramid material reinforced with steel fibres provides fantastic protection
  • Soft, knitted fabric is still comfortable for all-day wear despite excellent mechanical protection
  • Available in four different sizes for a guaranteed perfect fit. 

Contact Heat Protection

Kevlar Aramid Fibre Heat Resistant Gloves allow you to grip, hold and carry material with a temperature not exceeding 100°C for an impressive fifteen seconds. This allows foundry workers, blacksmiths and machinists to fix, adjust, handle and transfer extremely hot material without worrying about heat perforation and fabric damage.

Incredible Cut Resistance

Level E is the second highest rating available under EN 388. It means that a sharp implement would have to generate in excess of 22 newtons of force to rip through the tested fabric. This rating is the difference between a knife, blade, machine part or piece of metal tearing through your glove and your hand and it being jammed in the outer shell fabric of your glove.

Reinforced Thumb Crotch

The thumb crotch is the area of the glove that protects the webbing between your thumb and your first finger, and it's the site of many injuries resulting from handling sharp blades. The reinforced thumb crotch of the Cut Level E gloves ensures that this normally vulnerable area of your hand is provided with additional protection.

Soft Knitted Construction

Despite the extremely hardy and protective fibres used in the Kevlar aramid fibre gloves they are knitted in a way that ensures they're soft and comfortable to wear. This is particularly useful during long shifts, as the breathability of the knitted structure prevents your hands from overheating
