This new product range, called ‘Iconic’, uses DSM’s Dyneema Diamond Technology in combination with the color-coded traffic-light classification system for protective gloves. This makes TraffiGlove the first licensee of this DSM technology to introduce solid colored versions of high-performance safety gloves. The Bracknell, England-based company will offer its complete Iconic line of gloves in the familiar red, amber and green colors of its Original traffic-light system as an immediately visible signal of the cut protection level provided.
“Leveraging all the advantages of DSM’s cutting-edge Dyneema Diamond Technology, the solid colored Iconic range eliminates the drawbacks of previous generations of safety gloves,” said Olivier Boubeaud, Global Business director at DSM Dyneema. “The technology is based on our ultra high-molecular-weight polyethylene fiber and offers a high-end solution for gloves that combine cut protection with comfort.”
As an official licensee with access to Dyneema Diamond Technology, TraffiGlove has now moved to develop a value position in the cut-resistant glove market by creating the new Iconic glove. Lightweight, with MicroDex Precise palm coating for exceptional grip in dry, wet and oily conditions, the glove is designed to provide comfort, close-fitting dexterity and cut protection at EN388 Level 3, 4 and 5. The level of protection is instantly recognizable by the familiar Original traffic-light code, helping to ensure the right glove is selected for every application.
“TraffiGlove invented the Original colour-coded traffic-light safety system which has been imitated by manufacturers around the world,” noted Franz Lorenschitz, Marketing Manager at TraffiGlove. “As the first licensee to incorporate Dyneema Diamond Technology into a complete range of colour-coded safety gloves, we are delighted to partner with DSM Dyneema to offer the ultimate in lightweight high cut protection.”
