Kevlar® for PPE


Reliable mechanical protection against a range of multiple hazard risks...

For more than 50 years, garments made with DuPont™ Kevlar® fiber have been providing wearers access to industry-leading Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) solutions. Front line workers across a range of applications prefer garments made with Kevlar® because they offer high protection benefits and are also lightweight and comfortable. Garments made with Kevlar® is commonly found in Law Enforcement, Emergency Response and Industrial Manufacturing environments.

Kevlar® was designed to perform a cut above the competition…

The development of Kevlar® was the result of many years of material science innovation conducted by DuPont technical teams. This investment in research and development led to the creation of Kevlar® and other proprietary new fiber technology solutions. Workers who wear PPE made with Kevlar® can now do their jobs knowing their PPE features the benefits of decades of DuPont material science innovation.

Cut and Thermal protection designed for a range of applications…

Workers know that gloves and sleeves made with Kevlar® provide protection that meets or exceeds industry safety standards. Garments made with Kevlar® can also withstand temperatures up to 900° F for extended periods due to the inherent flame-resistance of the fiber. Kevlar® will not burn or melt, unlike standard materials like nylon and leather, so it represents a smarter choice for workers who encounter both cut and thermal hazards as part of their daily tasks.
