Gloves made with DuPont™ Kevlar® — Protection at Work
Genuine Kevlar® For Legendary Protection
Knowing safety is something you can’t take for granted, DuPont scientists have engineered the superior cut protection of Kevlar® for your safety. Unlike nylon, leather and high-performance polyethylene, gloves and sleeves made of Kevlar® fiber are not only incredibly cut-resistant but are inherently flame-resistant so they won’t burn, support combustion, or melt—making them a smart choice for those who encounter both cut and heat on the job.
For users and safety managers, our Glove Selector Tool serves as a guide for decision makers to help them assess hazards and choose the appropriate cut protection for gloves and accessories with confidence.
And the innovations continue: DuPont™ Kevlar® patented technology makes the lightest weight, highest performing gloves possible. Our new Kevlar® engineered yarns provide greater levels of cut, heat and durability protection than ever before.
