Glass is for windows, not for gloves
Using Dyneema® Diamond Technology in our designs has allowed us to produce gloves that feel like a second skin: they’re enjoyable to wear while providing excellent cut resistance and functionality. One of our most exciting breakthroughs is a glove that offers touchscreen compatibility – so it stays on the wearer’s hands when it matters.
Kieran Tydeman, Director, Stalsen
We quickly realized that gloves with Dyneema® were lasting an average of three days, while aramid gloves lasted only five to six hours. Over the past year, our annual spending on gloves has more than halved. Meanwhile, the number of hand lacerations has decreased by 90%, which has dramatically reduced the company’s medical costs.
Mike Kissell, Director Human Resources and Safety, Choice Fabrications
By switching to gloves made with Dyneema®, our plant has reduced its glove purchasing costs by 60% in just six months. The new gloves also have a positive effect on productivity – enabling our employees to handle small parts more effectively without dropping or fumbling. Last but not least, the company has achieved significant savings due to the avoidance of hand and finger lacerations.

Our global testing capabilities
Cut-resistance test – EN388 COUP
Cut-resistance test – TDM-100
Puncture-resistance tensile test
Measuring puncture resistance based on EN388 mechanical test standards. Also suitable for testing the tensile and elongation properties of fabrics based on ISO 13934 test standards.
Evaluating the number of cycles a glove can resist while rubbed against standard abrasive material at a constant load. The abrasion level is determined according to EN388 test standards.
Measuring the number of twists and turns applied during the yarn covering process – a critical metric to define the comfort and cut performance of a cut-resistant article.
Studying the surface morphology of technical fibers to understand the composition and construction of articles.
