SUPERIOR GLOVE INTRODUCES NEW SUREKNIT™ GLOVES MADE WITH ADVANCED DYNEEMA® FIBER TECHNOLOGY

DyneemaURMOND (NL), 12 October 2007 - Superior Glove is proud to introduce a new glove made with Dyneema® that is truly remarkable in both the cut- and abrasion-resistance categories. Superior's SureKnit™ seamless gloves are a shining example of the best advances that have been made in fiber technology. A glove this comfortable, providing this much protection would have been the impossible dream, back even a few years ago. The SureKnit™ glove with Dyneema® is so abrasion-resistant, it did not wear out even after 5000 cycles on the Taber Test, used to determine abrasion resistance. So now, while providing excellent protection against cuts, Superior offers a glove that won’t wear out long before its cut-resistance does. But there’s another bonus: with help from DSM Dyneema, Superior has applied a unique spinning technique to the process, resulting in a knit that is less slippery, and thus provides better grip.
