Cut Resistant Gloves

Every day, people all over the world injure their hands at work. In fact, hand injuries are a leading cause of lost workdays and emergency-room visits. Hand injuries can be costly to employers and life altering for employees.

But the worst thing is that many of these injuries are easily preventable. All it takes is a good pair of gloves. Here lies the problem. More often than not, safety gloves are usually hot gloves, uncomfortable gloves, inflexible gloves – and very soon, unworn gloves.

At DSM Dyneema we understand these problems, and have dedicated ourselves to solving them through innovation. When it comes to hand protection, we have the fiber, the know-how and the resources to help the world’s leading work-glove manufacturers make the world’s safest gloves.

  • Update to EN388 European standard on protective gloves will help specifiers obtain the levels of cut resistance they need


    A revision to the EN388 standard for gloves giving protection from mechanical risks, including cuts, will increase the accuracy and reliability of cutting tests on higher resistance materials. The revision, which is likely to be published around the middle of 2016, has been welcomed by DSM Dyneema, the producer of Dyneema® ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene fiber used in many of the most cut-resistant protective gloves on the market.

  • Made with Dyneema® is creating the world’s safest hands

    Today we offer cut-resistant gloves with standard Dyneema® and the Dyneema® Diamond Technology. And while the fibers differ, the concept is the same: to help glove manufacturers create cut-resistant gloves that are strong, tough, comfortable, flexible, cool, and light. Gloves that don’t feel like gloves, yet which offer equivalent or better protection than their competitors. Gloves that are safe. The safest.

  • Zero Excuses with Protective Gloves

    Hand injuries stop people earning and working. And in the worst cases they permanently change your life for the worse. Yet the vast majority of workplace injuries can be prevented by doing nothing more than wearing good protective gloves.  

    That’s why, in 2012, DSM Dyneema teamed up with EHS Today magazine to launch the Zero Excuses campaign. Although the Zero Excuses website focuses on hand protection within the U.S., many of the articles, case studies, and discussions are universal. They help to raise awareness of the most common causes of hand injuries, focus on the injury trends, and highlight the latest tools, technologies, and best practices to maximize hand safety.
