DuPont launches Kevlar & Tychem hand protection portfolio in India


DuPont Safety Construction launched its hand protection portfolio of Kevlar and Tychem glove and sleeve solutions in India. The portfolio was showcased at a DuPont-hosted event entitled Hand Protection Summit on August 2, 2019 in Mumbai.

While hands are one of the most critical parts of the human body, their complex capabilities often make them vulnerable to injury. Whether a person is working in manufacturing or manning an oil rig, hand safety remains a principle concern. In the United States, research from the Bureau of Labour Statistics shows 20 percent of disabling workplace injuries involve hands, 70 percent of hand injuries result from not wearing any type of hand protection and 30 percent of hand injuries are caused by wearing the wrong glove.

“We’re introducing a new portfolio of hand protection products designed to keep today’s workers safe from cut, heat and chemical injuries,” said David Domnisch, global head for DuPont Personal Protection. “With hands being the second most common body part injured in workplace accidents, we’re proud to offer hand protection innovations that continue to advance the industry while making sure workers are getting home to their families safely at the end of each work shift.”

From first responders to industrial workers, DuPont provides a wide range of personal protection solutions including some of the most trusted and innovative brands in the industry, such as Kevlar, Nomex, Tyvek, and Tychem  to meet your safety needs.
