Over the years, the industry has struggled to equate cut resistance with actual risk. The recent updates to the ANSI 105 and EN 388 standards will provide a more uniformed approach to assessing the cut resistant performance of gloves across the globe.
Today, Protective Industrial Products (PIP) proudly announces its twentieth acquisition - the acquisition of Century Glove, Inc.

When the job calls for heavy-duty cut protection, handy slip-resistance, and no-smudge surface protection, the Brass Knuckle® SmartCut™ BKCR404 is the glove for you. This glove is ideal for handling finer-surfaces and finished goods, like glass, polished metals, painted or powder coat surfaces, ceramics and more.
This week at ExpoProtection 2016 in Paris, France, PIP launched three new glove technologies. In line with launches announced at the National Safety Council Congress & Expo Show in Anaheim, CA earlier this month, PIP forges further ahead as the leader in Cut Protection.
