Kevlar® Armor Technology

DuPont Protective Gloves for High-Risk Environments

High-risk hazardous environments call for more protection than the standard gloves of Kevlar® brand fibre. That’s why DuPont created patented Kevlar® Armor Technology engineered yarns for cut protective gloves.

Gloves made with DuPont™ Kevlar® Armor Technology

Gloves made with DuPont™ Kevlar® Armor Technology help manufacturers meet the highest cut performance standards.

Whether it’s working near stationary blades, slitting operations, or handling sharp metal, glass, or abrasives; protective gloves and other protective garments, such as aprons and sleeves, are critical. It’s why DuPont engineered its innovative, lightweight Kevlar® fibre to make DuPont™ Kevlar® Armor Technology. Used in the manufacturing of protective gloves for high-risk areas, our patented Armor Technology helps provide a very high level of cut protection. Kevlar® Armor Technology is significantly lighter and more comfortable than steel mesh, so manual dexterity is enhanced.

Available only from licensed manufacturers, protective gloves with DuPont™ Kevlar® Armor Technology meet performance and compatibility standards.
