Prevent to use DSM Dyneema for Glassbeater sweaters

Prevent, the European based manufacturer of the Glassbeater range of high-end cut resistant clothing has joined DSM Dyneema's Global Licensing Program for protective clothing.

The move marks DSM Dyneema business' strategy to expand its range of protective clothing applications beyond arm and hand protection to all-body wear. Cut resistant clothing is a relatively new development in the protective apparel industry driven by the need for enhanced worker-protection and facilitated by the development of new textile technology that enables lightweight, more breathable clothing that gives the wearer improved overall protection, but with greater comfort.

Prevent is an established market leader, supplying high quality, comfortable protective clothing to the glass industry's leading manufacturers. Glassbeater's range of sweaters, polo shirts and T-shirts made with Dyneema fiber provide the maximum cut resistance level 5 protection according to the EN388 cut resistance standard and are CE marked. Glassbeater sweaters made with Dyneema are extremely comfortable to wear and feel cooler because of the lightweight and heat conductivity properties of the Dyneema fiber.

The partnership between the two companies will focus on product innovation and marketing of a broader portfolio of protective clothing for arm, shoulder and body protection, and marks DSM Dyneema's strategic intent to expand its high protective textiles business portfolio by partnering with market leaders in key application fields.

Erik Krak, Managing Director of Prevent comments: “The Dyneema brand represents the very best in cut resistance performance while being light and comfortable for the wearer. Our Glassbeater customers in the glass and metal cutting industry demand the best in comfort and protection for their work-place clothing. Teaming up with DSM Dyneema now means our customers have two brands they can trust in to deliver maximum protection with optimum comfort in an expanded range of protective clothing.”

“Protective clothing made with Dyneema encourages more wear, thanks to greater comfort, protecting workers better and longer, and ultimately saves time resulting in increased efficiency and reduced cost,” says Henri Oeseburg, Business Manager DSM Dyneema Cut Resistance. “This partnership with Prevent will spearhead our move into a broader array of protective clothing, preventing injuries not just to hands, but to arms, shoulders and body.”
