ULTRA-LIGHTWEIGHT ADVANCED CUT PROTECTION WITH THE WORLDS’ STRONGEST FIBRE
THORMASAFE Diamond Cut Glove series with patented Dyneema® Diamond Technology addresses the limitations of current steel and glass fiber cut resistant protection with a more comfortable, durable and safer design that delivers long term cost savings. The assortment offers gloves with the highest rated abrasion and tear resistance according to the EN388:2016 for unparalleled protection.
Dyneema® Diamond Technology adds micro-particles within very thin pliable fibres which are then further enhanced with a unique polymer that provides high strength, maximum durability and cool-touch comfort by radiating heat away from the hand. Knitted together, these fibres create structural integrity in an extraordinarily strong, thin and ultra-light weight material.
With Dyneema® Diamond Technology, THORMASAFE is able to develop ultra-lightweight gloves that offer the same level of cut resistance as thicker and heavier gloves made from aramid, HMPE or commodity fibres such as nylon. All THORMASAFE Diamond Cut gloves are made using this innovative fabric, are glass fibre free and complies with the EN388:2016 standards.
THORMASAFE DIAMOND CUT vs GLASS FIBRE GLOVES
Glass fiber is often used in gloves to achieve high levels of cut resistance. However glass has one major disadvantage - it is
very brittle and therefore the yarn breaks easily - which reduces the level of safety and comfort.
THORMAS Diamond Cut gloves containing Dyneema® Diamond Technology provide consistent high cut resistance without the discomfort of glass.
