What are Kevlar Gloves

Kevlar Gloves are made from a material called Kevlar fiber. The name originates from this, as this special fiber is a high-performance synthetic fiber formed by the fusion of terephthaloyl chloride and para-phenylenediamine. It possesses extremely high cut resistance, abrasion resistance, and heat resistance, making it an essential personal protective equipment for your work.

Kevlar Fiber

Kevlar is a synthetic plastic fiber commonly used in manufacturing bulletproof vests, cut-resistant gloves, and stab-resistant vests due to its material characteristics. This means that these gloves are not easily penetrated by dangerous objects such as knives and bullets. Of course, nothing is absolute, and this cannot guarantee that penetration will not occur, but it can reduce the impact of bullets and sharp objects. Undoubtedly, this is the best choice for applications requiring excellent cut resistance and puncture resistance, such as engineering, assembly, metalworking, glass processing, welding, and more.

Heat-resistant Kevlar Gloves

When working in high-temperature environments for extended periods, heat-resistant gloves are essential to ensure worker safety and productivity. Kevlar heat-resistant gloves are one such type, usually providing excellent performance in such environments, effectively withstanding high temperatures.

Unlike most plastics, Kevlar fiber does not melt, ignite, or burn because it is inherently flame-resistant. Therefore, its decomposition temperature is high, generally starting above 500°C (932°F).

Lightweight Material

Compared to many traditional safety protective equipment, although Kevlar gloves have high strength and abrasion resistance, they are lightweight. This makes Kevlar gloves flexible and lightweight, suitable not only for heavy-duty applications such as welding and metalworking but also for industries such as gardening and food processing.

Applications of Kevlar Gloves

The application range of Kevlar safety gloves is very wide, including:

  • Welding
  • Iron and steel plants
  • Mechanical maintenance
  • Glass manufacturing
  • Metal processing
  • Engineering and manufacturing
  • Construction and construction
  • Pharmaceutical industry
  • Chemical industry
  • Automotive industry

Kevlar Gloves VS Cut Resistant Gloves

Both gloves effectively prevent hand injuries caused by cutting, but they differ slightly in some aspects. For example, in terms of materials, Kevlar gloves are made of Kevlar fiber, while the materials of cut-resistant gloves are diverse, such as Hppe, polyester fiber, nylon, etc.

In terms of design, Kevlar gloves emphasize lightweight and flexibility, while cut-resistant gloves are heavier because they often add corresponding protection to the wrists or other key areas. Therefore, although Kevlar gloves have extraordinary cut resistance, they do not classify cut resistance into different levels like cut-resistant gloves for you to choose the appropriate level of cut-resistant gloves based on your needs.

In terms of functionality, Kevlar gloves can be used in high-temperature environments, but cut-resistant gloves cannot. They need to add some heat-resistant materials to be used, which is why Kevlar gloves can be used in metalworking and forging, but ordinary cut-resistant gloves are difficult to achieve.

In summary, both gloves can provide comprehensive protection for our hands, but how to choose the gloves you need depends on the work environment and requirements you use.
