Cut Protection

DuPont is Setting a Standard in Cut Protection

Broken glass, metal shards, razor sharp machinery—lightweight Kevlar® fiber from DuPont helps provide industrial workers with superior cut protection from these and other hazards.

Strong, lightweight Kevlar® fiber is engineered to help glove manufacturers provide premier cut protection from on-the-job hazards in the automotive, manufacturing, construction, aerospace and electronics industries.  Its cut- and fire- resistant properties are ideal for times when dual-hazard protection is needed.

In the field and lab, DuPont continues to innovate. We test these cut protection innovations rigorously using our state-of-the-art Cut Lab to test products made with Kevlar® for compliance with applicable industry standards. Our collaborations with industry partners have led to innovations like our next-generation form of Kevlar®. Produced at our newest plant in Cooper River, SC, light weight yarns can be designed to help manufacturers improve manual dexterity and comfort for the glove and apparel wearer.

Beyond cutting-edge fibers, DuPont is a leader actively working to address global cut protection standards in regions of the world.
