Wilmington, DE (PRWEB) June 13, 2013
DuPont Protection Technologies announced today the introduction of the DuPont™ SafeSPEC™ Glove Selector Tool (http://www.SafeSPECGloves.DuPont.com) that will help safety professionals make informed decisions about which gloves and sleeves made with DuPont™ Kevlar® can meet their needs.
The DuPont™ SafeSPEC™ Glove Selector Tool enables users to quickly and easily search more than 300 gloves from 10 glove manufacturers that have met the strict criteria established to become licensees of DuPont™ Kevlar®. The latest innovations from these licensees are featured.
In addition to streamlining the purchasing decision, this user-friendly tool gives safety professionals the knowledge that the glove or sleeve they select contains genuine DuPont™ Kevlar® brand fiber.
“The rapid advances in glove technology and increasing number of types and styles of gloves are making the selection process more challenging than ever,” said David Buzzelli, North American marketing manager for DuPont™ Kevlar® Cut Protection. “Our Glove Selector Tool, which features dynamic search capabilities, was designed to make the selection process faster and easier. Now, safety professionals will be able to easily find the appropriate glove for the job.”
Taking advantage of the dynamic search capabilities, users can conduct a search based on a single factor or multiple requirements. Selection variables include: ANSI level for abrasion, cut or puncture; types of coatings; glove construction; and features such as size, weight, cuff type and thumb and finger details.
All products that match the search criteria entered by the user are displayed in full-color photographs. Users can view a detailed product information page for each glove made with DuPont™ Kevlar® and link to the manufacturer’s website to find a distributor.
Gloves and sleeves made with DuPont™ Kevlar® brand fiber are extraordinarily strong, lightweight, resistant to both cuts and abrasion, and Kevlar® is inherently flame resistant, helping workers in a wide range of industries get the job done safely.
