Cut & mechanical protection


Pushing the boundaries of protection


Patented Kevlar® engineered yarns combine cut-resistant soft-spun Kevlar® materials, high-strength inorganic yarns and elastic stretch-core yarns to deliver the best balance of protection and comfort.

Only gloves made with Kevlar® engineered yarns are able to increase the level of protection—without adding bulk—providing enhanced breathability to increase comfort. This technology provides users the comfort and dexterity to make doing their job easier and the superior cut protection to do their job confidently.
