How are gloves rated? The protection factor is indicated on a scale from 1 to 4. The higher the number, the better the glove. See table below

  • Resistance to abrasion: The number of cycles required to abrade through the sample glove (abrasion by sandpaper under a stipulated pressure). 
  • Blade cut resistance: The number of cycles required to cut through the sample at a constant speed.
  • Tear resistance: The amount of force required to tear the sample.
  • Puncture resistance: The amount of force required to pierce the sample with a standard sized point.
