DSM Dyneema has introduced Black Dyneema Diamond Technology, a fibre innovation that combines next level cut protection and comfort — with specific benefits for tough jobs. Black Dyneema Diamond Technology builds upon the Dyneema Diamond Technology platform. This innovation leverages DSM Dyneema’s unique, patented process to permanently embed deep, rich colour directly into the fibre. The result is colour that lasts the lifetime of protective gloves, sleeves or other products made from the fibre, says the manufacturer. Glove manufacturers will be able to develop gloves and sleeves with Black Dyneema Diamond Technology that achieve high cut protection levels in accordance with the new EN388 and ANSI standards. The resulting innovations will reach EN388 cut resistance level D and ANSI level A4 without reinforcing with steel or fibreglass. As such, gloves made with Black Dyneema Diamond Technology can provide maximum protection with neither the discomfort of steel fibres, nor the brittleness and short protection lifespan of fibreglass. Thus gloves retain comfort properties such as thinness, softness and cool-to-the-touch feel.
