Congratulations to all of this year's winners; you've set the bar incredibly high for 2020.
The shirt is a lightweight knit of over 60% Kevlar®, which not only provides protection against cuts, but also protection against heat. The shirt provides a high level of comfort for the wearer whilst maintaining breathability and top-grade protective properties.
The ‘clean’ lint-free 15-gauge sleeves do not leave any traces on objects, and provide protection against mechanical and thermal hazards. Machine knitted using Kevlar® filament yarn, the exceptionally lightweight sleeves offer high levels of comfort and breathability.
Offering new levels of comfort at cut level D, the gloves integrate the manufacturer’s AIRtech® platform, delivering 360 degrees of breathability, along with its DURAtech® coating that provides 18,000 abrasive cycles per millimeter. All of which provide wearers with a high-performing glove that offers both comfort and durability.
The Needle glove ensures dexterity for the wearer while also delivering reliable protection for palms and fingertips alike. The outer shell features 100% knitted black Kevlar®; and the inner layer features a fine-knit glove made from cut-resistant HDPE yarn with a palm coating made from polyurethane (PU). A special feature of the glove is its sting protection insert for the palm of the hand, to protect against injection needles. The glove has been tested to EN 388 and pinprick protection to ANSI/ISEA 105-2016 Level 4.
Delivering the highest cut protection levels, this lightweight 18-gauge glove meets EN388-2016 cut level F performance. Kevlar® is an integral part of the design, combined with steel-core fibers in a composite blend material to achieve high protection without sacrificing dexterity and comfort.
Created to spotlight excellence in innovation and design of protective gloves made with Kevlar®, the DuPont™ Kevlar® Glove Innovation Awards give authorized licensees of the Kevlar® brand the opportunity to showcase their advanced designs using Kevlar® to enhance worker protection while delivering comfort and superior durability.
"We are proud to celebrate with these innovators as they push the limits of what's possible with Kevlar®"
"This is the fourth year we have held these awards, and each year the manufacturers continue to impress us with their innovations using Kevlar®, positioning these products on the forefront of protective technology for worker safety.
We are proud to celebrate with these innovators as they push the limits of what's possible with Kevlar® to make worker protection more comfortable, more durable and more protective."
