Best Kevlar Gloves
Thursday, 22 March 2018 | Admin
DuPont Kevlar is a lightweight, versatile and unbelievably strong synthetic fibre. In fact, Kevlar is five times stronger than steel based on an equal weight basis, offers superior cut resistance to nylon, leather and polyethylene, and is also flame-resistant. With all of this in mind, it's no surprise that Kevlar is used to make everything from clothing and accessories, to conveyor belts and stab-resistant body armour.
Due to its exceptional durability and resistance to cut and flame, Kevlar produces the lightest, highest-performing gloves possible. Considering the number of materials that have been engineered specifically for premium industrial protection in the 50 years since Kevlar was invented, that's no mean feat. So, if you're looking for work gloves for applications where safety is crucial, look no further than DuPont Kevlar. Here's our pick of the five best Kevlar Work Gloves:
