This week at ExpoProtection 2016 in Paris, France, PIP launched three new glove technologies. In line with launches announced at the National Safety Council Congress & Expo Show in Anaheim, CA earlier this month, PIP forges further ahead as the leader in Cut Protection. “Once again, PIP demonstrates that our strong power brands such as G-Tek®, Bouton®, KutGard® and Assurance® continue to have global appeal,” explained Joe Milot, President of PIP.

The following were launched at ExpoProtection:

  • G-Tek®  Suprene™  -A  revolutionary  new  fiber  that  is  born  of  the  latest  breakthroughs  in  nanofabrication technologies. PIP launched four new glove styles featuring this innovative new fiber, with unparalleled strength and physical properties.
  • G-Tek® PolyKor™ Xrystal™ -Represents the latest iteration of PolyKor in which it is combined with naturally hardened, crystalized minerals. The result is a super tough, durable cut resistant fiber that is at the apex of performance. PIP introduced four new gloves under the G-Tek® PolyKor™ Xrystal™ label.
  • G-Tek® Kev™ -Launched in collaboration with DuPont’s quest for advanced Kevlar® gloves that go beyond the traditional yellow glove. Five new glove styles will bring Kevlar® Engineered yarns to the forefront of the industry. The innovative Red G-Tek® Kev™ 09-K1640 with A4 cut protection and the Bumblebee G-Tek® Kev™ 09-K1600 with A7 cut protection styles were awarded the coveted DuPont Innovation Award.
