Dyneema fibres have been approved for use in gloves for the food processing industry. In the highly cut-resistant Tuffshield Evolution gloves from Perfect Fit, a brand of the Bacou-Dalloz group, the ultra strong fibre from DSM is used in a composite yarn which combines level five cut resistance with anti-bacterial performance.

Dyneema has become a material of choice for protective gloves in many industrial segments by offering both comfort and protection. The Tuffshield Evolution cut-resistant gloves are available in a variety of sizes and three basic models (light, medium and heavy) for all types of applications.

The result is a very high level of cut resistance (five), anti-bacterial performance, strength, durability and breathability. The ergonomic seamless design of the gloves, combined with the flexibility of the yarn, provide for a high dexterity level.

Tuffshield Evolution gloves rely on the benefits of Dyneema fibres to provide superior cut-resistance, comfort and durability. Its anti-bacterial qualities and confirmed suitability for food contact make the gloves suitable for a range of uses including deboning, carving, fish filleting, cleaning, operating slicing machinery as well as other activities relating to catering and food distribution.

Dyneema fibres have been approved as intended for gloves for the meat processing industry in full compliance with the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FDA) and all applicable food additive regulations, as well as with article 3 of the Framework Directive and the EU Plastics Directive.
