Glove innovation award winner
23 November 2016
At Expoprotection (7 - 9 November 2016, Paris), Dupont announced the winners of the Kevlar Glove Innovation Awards and Tilsatec was thrilled to be one of the first European winners with its TTP042PU - Cut 5 18GG PU glove.
The TTP042PU is the next generation of Tilsatec hand protection and is said to be the first 18 gauge glove on the market to achieve ISO 13997 level 5 cut resistance. The Cut 5 18GG PU is super lightweight, providing that sought after second skin feel. The fine, soft liner is constructed to ensure steel cannot come through to the hand, maximising comfort levels for long periods of wear. This glove is designed to deliver a high degree of touch sensitivity and tactility for carrying out intricate tasks and assembly work.
The Innovation Awards recognise innovative glove designs from Dupont Kevlar licensees who are meeting evolving market needs. Winning glove entries were chosen based on designs that utilised Kevlar fibre, were unique and groundbreaking in their approach, and challenged the boundaries of conventional cut protection.
