Ansell Healthcare Uses Dyneema® Fibers In Gloves

Ansell Healthcare Products Inc., a Red Bank, N.J.-based international manufacturer and marketer of natural and synthetic latex surgical and medical examination gloves, is now using Dyneema® fiber — produced by DSM Dyneema, The Netherlands — in a line of cut-resistant gloves offered under its Polar Bear Paw Gard® brand.

The US Food and Drug Administration recently approved the fibers for use in the food-processing industry.

The gloves combine up to ASTM-ISEA Level 5 cut resistance to deliver the protection of a heavyweight sleeve or glove with the close fit of a lightweight glove.
