5 Reasons Why We Love Dyneema® (And Why You Should, Too!)

by Joe Geng on November 18, 2015

Comments (6)

Last week, DSM Dyneema®’s Senior Sales Manager Chris Reding held a training session with a large group of our Superior Glove employees. While he was here, in addition to teaching us valuable sales and conflict resolution techniques, Chris also reignited our passion for Dyneema®: an extremely strong, dependable UHMWPE fiber. If you don’t already know, DSM began manufacturing polyethylene in 1959. Then, in 1990, they invented the gel-spinning process that they used to create the first ever Dyneema® fiber. Because of its durability, today, Dyneema® is used in a wide range of different products – everything from hiking shoes, racecar seatbelts, medical stitching, bulletproof vests, and, last but not least, in our work gloves!

Here are some of the many reasons why we trust Dyneema® to keep you safe:

1. Dyneema® is Extremely Reliable:

Finding manufacturers who make the highest caliber UHMWPE fiber on a consistent basis is no easy feat; the quality of the fiber that DSM produces has always been extremely reliable. Because of their history, we know that we can always count on DSM to create products that they’re proud of.

Not only is Dyneema® dependable because the company that makes it is so respectable, but one of the main reasons why we’ve chosen to use Dyneema® in so many of our products is because although it’s known for its thinness, on an equal weight basis, Dyneema® is stronger than steel. Because of this, when you wear gloves crafted with Dyneema®, you know that they’ll stand the test of brute force and repeated use because the fiber is so durable.


2. Dyneema® Provides Stellar Cut Resistance:

In addition to being so long-lasting, Dyneema® is also known for its cut resistance. Dyneema® can also be spun together with other materials to provide you with a higher level of cut protection that you can always count on.

And, as we learned from Chris, DSM has also recently developed a product known as Dyneema® Diamond Technology. This combination of unique polymers with engineered micro-particles is amazing, because on its own, it has an ASTM cut level 3 rating. Although it has a good cut rating on its own, the most amazing aspect of Dyneema® Diamond Technology is that it can be combined with other very fine types of yarn in order to improve the level of cut resistance that your gloves provide, while maintaining their light weight!


3. Dyneema® Won’t Make You Itchy:

Unlike other products, Dyneema® gloves and sleeves won’t cause your hands or arms to feel itchy like other materials used in protective equipment do. This is because the Dyneema® fibers are so thin – which means that unlike products made with fiberglass, the miniscule Dyneema® fibers won’t individually poke through the product and cause itchiness. This also means that your employees won’t be tempted to remove their protective gear because their skin feels irritated. Since 70% of all hand injuries occur when people aren’t wearing their gloves, this is a huge plus!

4. Dyneema® can be washed:


One of the other major benefits of buying PPE made with Dyneema® is that they can be laundered – without negatively affecting the fiber. This is a big advantage, since it will mean that you won’t have to dispose of your gloves every time they get dirty.


5. Dyneema® is Cost-Efficient:

And, last but certainly not least, due to all of its other benefits, Dyneema® is extremely cost-efficient. Because of the inherent durability, products made with Dyneema® won’t have to be replaced nearly as often. This means that by investing in safety equipment that’s crafted with this outstanding material, your business will save a lot of money on PPE in the long run.

Superior Glove is very proud of the fact that we are one of only nine glove manufacturers within North America who are licensed to use Dyneema® in our products. We’re confident in its ability to protect your hands, and that’s why we use it in so many of our PPE products.

So what’s holding you back? Try PPE that’s been specially crafted with Dyneema® today – you’ll definitely see and feel the difference.
