Glove without glass fibre
01 April 2015
Honeywell has released what it says is the world’s first nitrile-dipped, 13 gauge glove without glass fibre to reach the highest level of cut resistance (Level 5) according to EN 388: 2003 — the industry standard for protective gloves against mechanical risks.
Using an innovative material, Perfect Cutting Diamond gloves are designed to provide effective protection against common cut hazards for workers in industries such as automotive manufacturing, aerospace, construction and glass production.
"Incorporating Dyneema Diamond Technology, the new Perfect Cutting Diamond gloves are a complete game-changer and have excelled in our customer field tests,” said Stephanie Quilliet, product manager, Honeywell Safety Products in Europe, Middle East, and Africa. "Not only do Perfect Cutting Diamond gloves offer level 5 cut resistance, they also provide maximum dexterity and comfort with the added benefit of being free from glass fibre, which can often cause skin irritation and allergies such as contact-dermatitis."
