Kevlar® is extremely strong. In fact, it is five times the strength of steel on an equal-weight basis.

Kevlar® is engineered to provide premier cut protection from hazards such as glass, metal shards and sharp machinery. The lightweight yarns used help to improve manual dexterity and comfort for the wearer, allowing more ease at getting the job done right. With both cut and fire‐resistant properties, Kevlar® is the
ideal product for use where dual-hazard protection is needed.
