Magid Intros Comfortable Cut-Resistant Sleeves
Highly comfortable cut-resistant sleeve.
Chicago, IL — Magid Glove & Safety, has introduced CutMaster Aramax® Sleeves to provide both protection and comfort. Offering double-ply cut resistance in a single-ply construction, these one-of-a-kind sleeves are machine knit from the company's own Aramax and Aramax FR Yarns in its Chicago manufacturing facility.

Consisting of a unique spinning technique and a special combination of para-aramid, fiberglass and synthetic fibers, Aramax Yarn has up to two times greater cut protection and abrasion resistance than yarns of a similar weight made from 100 percent aramid or other cut-resistant synthetic fibers. The high level of performance offered by Aramax Yarn allows the company to knit single-ply sleeves that offer the same level of cut-protection normally requiring double-ply sleeves — with the added benefit of superior comfort-enhancing characteristics. Specially designed to wick moisture away from the skin and to allow more air transfer, CutMaster Aramax Sleeves keep the wearer cool and comfortable during even the longest shift. With Cut Level 4 cut resistance, the sleeves are available in lengths from 14 to 24-in. (356 to 610mm), as well as with or without a thumb slot, for the ultimate in flexibility in fitting today's diverse workforce. The new sleeves are also able to withstand multiple launderings without compromising performance, further extending the life of the product and resulting in a low total cost of ownership. Ideal applications for these sleeves include manufacturing, or any general-purpose application where sharp objects are being handled.

For customers who require flame resistant (FR) cut protection, the company also offers a wide selection of CutMaster Aramax FR Sleeves knitted from a special FR formulation of Aramax Yarn. Offering a high Cut Level 3 cut resistance, the FR sleeves deliver excellent flame resistant and cut protection with great single-ply coolness, breathability and comfort. Like its siblings, the FR versions of the sleeves exhibit excellent durability and are available in lengths from 14 to 24-in., as well as with or without a thumb slot.
