Did you hear? ISEA recently announced the arrival the new ANSI/ISEA 105-2016 Hand Protection Classification. Among the many other significant changes to the old cut testing standard, this exciting news means that, in order to increase the accuracy in test results among glove manufacturers, the way in which the level of cut resistance is assigned to a particular glove during cut testing is going to be different.
