SATRA: breakthrough in cut testing

SATRA's new cut test machine can test a range of materials for applications such as protective clothing and cut-resistant gloves, including those worn by police on riot control duty and security guards.
SATRA has developed and built a new machine to assess the cut resistance of a new generation of toughened fabrics and materials. The technology centre believes it is the only commercial organisation in the UK with this type of equipment and able to cut test to EN ISO 13997 - the most stringent international standard for assessing the cut resistance of protective clothing.
