Dyneema® Diamond Technology versus fiberglass

Why risk your hands - or your general health?

Gloves based on Dyneema® Diamond Technology outperform gloves made with fiberglass in real-world situations. This is because it's the fiber itself that gives the gloves their enhanced cut protection, not a brittle, fiberglass add-in.

Long-lasting protective performance

Because workplace conditions won't break Dyneema® Diamond Technology fibers, the material continues to perform long after alternatives have become unsafe. And that's not the only benefit.

  • There are no health concerns about using Dyneema® in gloves
  • Gloves with Dyneema® are flexible and comfortable - so more likely to be worn
  • Broken fiberglass filaments don't protect

The reliable choice from the leader in cut-resistant materials

Job number one for safety managers is to protect. Sleep easier by eliminating the worry that gloves might work in a lab - but not in the real world.

Don't introduce risk

Gloves should protect. And there should be no questions about it. Gloves made with Dyneema® Diamond Technology fiber give the user - and the decision maker - peace of mind. Gloves that rely on fiberglass to achieve high cut test scores leave too much to chance.
