DuPont Personal Protection (Wilmington, DE) has announced the launch of a new portfolio of patented DuPont Kevlar engineered yarns, which combine cut and heat-resistant soft-spun Kevlar materials, high-strength inorganic yarns and elastic stretch-core yarns.
Kevlar engineered yarns can provide industry leading multi-hazard protection against cut, heat, flame, and electric arc hazards. This versatility is key to providing hand and arm protection which can be used across a range of job tasks and industries.
The use of Kevlar engineered yarns helps enable manufacturers to increase the level of protection without significantly increasing weight and thickness. The materials are also designed to help deliver enhanced breathability and moisture management. To address specific needs across industries, the Kevlar engineered yarns portfolio delivers next-generation performance across 3 new brands – Kevlar Xtreme, Kevlar Comfort, and Kevlar Essential yarns.
- Kevlar Xtreme is for workers facing the most high-risk hazards, and helps deliver unmatched multi-hazard protection against cut, heat, flame and arc flash hazards.
- Kevlar Comfort engineered yarns help provide the best comfort, soft touch and dexterity without sacrificing cut and heat protection.
- Kevlar Essential engineered yarns help provide reliable and affordable cut and heat protection with superior breathability for use in lighter duty applications
