Gloves & Workwear

Delivering unparalleled cut protection, comfort and dexterity for all your hand safety needs

Why choose Dyneema®?

Workers across a variety of industries, including manufacturing, heavy industry, automotive, packaging, and food handling are twice as likely to experience hand injuries compared to other upper body extremities. In fact, in the U.S. alone, more than 300,000 cuts and lacerations are recorded each year – costing businesses an estimated $740 million. 70% of those injuries could be avoided if workers wore protective gloves, yet too often, workers remove their gloves because they limit the movement and comfort required to do their job

Hand safety starts with selecting the right material. Gloves made with Dyneema® fiber are built for all-day wear – delivering unparalleled cut protection, dexterity and comfort. At DSM, we put safety at the core of everything we do, which allows us to continuously innovate cut-resistant fibers that are both reliable and certified safe, without compromising on protection.

The safest choice for cut resistant gloves

More than 20 years ago, Dyneema® fiber transformed the cut protective glove market, enabling manufacturers to design gloves that combine more reliable protection with greater comfort and dexterity than any other traditional cut-resistant material. As business demands have increased over time, some HMPE fiber producers have sacrificed quality for price.

At DSM, continual innovation at the fiber level allows worker safety and operational output to go hand-in-hand, meaning your glove performance won’t deteriorate over time.

Gloves made with Dyneema® Diamond Technology benefit from a single yarn solution that is significantly thinner than conventional fibers – allowing glove manufacturers and safety brands to design medium- to heavy-duty cut resistant gloves that provide uncompromised reliability and comfort, without using glass, basalt or steel fiber reinforcements.
