Chemically Resistant adhesives
DSM Dyneema® Diamond Technology Fiber
Categories: Polymer; Thermoplastic; Polyethylene (PE); High Density (HDPE); UHMW PE (Ultra High Molecular Weight PE)

Material Notes: Dyneema® Diamond Technology takes gloves to a new level of protection by providing greater cut resistance with no compromise in comfort or durability. DSM Dyneema is the only High Modulus Polyethylene (HMPE) fiber producer in the world that is vertically integrated from producing the base polymer through to spinning the actual yarn used to knit gloves. This has enabled us to combine the design of a completely new and specially engineered base polymer with new hardware technology to produce Dyneema® Diamond Technology.

The polymer used for Dyneema® Diamond Technology gloves provides high strength, cool-touch comfort and high durability (abrasion and tear resistance). DSM’s technology more than double the cut resistance of the yarn over the standard Dyneema® fiber by spinning specially engineered micro-particles into the polymer.

Applying this technology to very fine yarns provides our partners with the ability to manufacture ultra-lightweight gloves with the same cut resistance as thicker and heavier gloves made from aramid, HMPE or commodity fibers such as nylon. Dyneema® Diamond Technology fiber is 40% lighter (less dense) than aramid fiber, enabling gloves that are both thinner and much lighter, while offering the same cut protection. The combination of durability, thinness and lightness means that workers no longer have to compromise on comfort and tactility when choosing gloves with high cut protection.

Benefits : Dyneema® Diamond Technology fiber complies with Oekotex. Dyneema® Diamond Technology is compliant with food contact regulations laid out by the Food and Drug Administration in the US, and relevant bodies in the EU. Dyneema® Diamond Technology requires far less material to achieve same performance as heavy materials, resulting in a positive carbon footprint versus competitive materials.
