Protective Industrial Products (PIP) introduces its latest range of cut resistant gloves with Dyneema® fiber for the Chinese market.

Shanghai, 08 April 2014 - Close Co-operation between PIP and DSM Dyneema Delivers Gloves with Reliable Cut Resistance Performance, Comfort and Cost Efficiency At the 88th China (International) Occupational Safety & Health Goods Exhibition (CIOSH) in Shanghai, Protective Industrial Products (PIP), a leading supplier of consumable personal protective equipment will showcase its latest range of cut resistant gloves with DSM Dyneema’s Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene fiber, branded as Dyneema®.

The full range to be showcased at PIP’s booth (T5 WE01) includes a new line of cut resistant gloves with genuine Dyneema® fiber, designed specifically for the Chinese market. Taking into account the specific needs of Chinese end users in various industries, these gloves offer a combination of truly reliable cut protection performance and cost efficiency.

Paul Tao, Managing Director, PIP, AMEA said: “The Chinese market has evolved and now the automotive, glassworks, paperworks and other manufacturing/industrial sectors need cut resistant gloves that do not compromise reliable protection, comfort and cost efficiency. These new gloves are designed together with DSM Dyneema to meet China’s National Standard for Hand Protection, Protective Gloves Against Mechanical Risks (GB24541-2009), based on EN388 level 3 and 5 cut level standards. At the same time, they offer the key benefits of Dyneema® fibers in a cost efficient manner for the Chinese market.

Cut resistant gloves made with Dyneema® fibers offer a number of benefits when compared to those made with traditional materials such as aramid, leather and cotton.

The key differences are:

-Cut Resistance:Dyneema® fiber used in cut resistance gloves can achieve the China’s National Standard for Hand Protection, Protective Gloves Against Mechanical Risks (GB24541-2009), and the EN 388 cut level 3, 4 and 5 standards.

-Greater Comfort:Cut resistant gloves with Dyneema® fiber release heat from hands much faster than traditional materials so that workers’ hands can stay cooler and dryer when wearing gloves all day.

-High Durability:Gloves made with Dyneema® fiber offer up to 20 times more abrasion resistance than gloves made with traditional materials. They have excellent chemical resistance and are inert to most agents and environmental influences. Compared to aramid, Dyneema® fiber used in gloves shows no decline in cut resistance after sustained UV exposure.

-Efficiency:Highly reliable cut resistance performance truly reduces injuries, higher durability for longer lasting gloves and higher comfort improves productivity of workers. With excellent chemical resistance, gloves with Dyneema® fiber can be washed and reused over and over again, keeping their cut resistance performance.

-Dexterity:Compared to aramid gloves, gloves made with Dyneema® fiber offer higher dexterity as the filaments are so flexible and the fiber’s surface is smooth. It is so light that it floats on water. All these aspects help in making delicate tasks with sharp objects easier and quicker to complete, supporting productivity.

The new gloves are a result of close co-operation between PIP and DSM Dyneema in China. Oliver Boubeaud, Global Segment Director at DSM Dyneema, said: “DSM Dyneema has been committed to the Chinese market for many years and even played a key role as a founding member in establishing national hand protection and cut resistant standards in China. Together with PIP, we are fully committed to working in close partnership to deliver the best innovative solutions for cut resistant gloves with Dyneema® fiber. We want to truly serve the needs of the Chinese market by effectively protecting the hands of millions of workers in the various industries in China.”
