MCR Safety launches new glove with DuPont Kevlar

DuPont Protection Technologies (DuPont) and MCR Safety announced the launch of a new cut-resistant glove, Memphis Orange, made with Kevlar. MCR Safety is partnering with DuPont under the new Dare Bigger brand platform to promote its products with DuPont technology. This glove uses patented DuPont Kevlar engineered yarns, bringing cut-resistance performance, dexterity and high visibility to the market.

“We are proud to partner with DuPont in an effort to provide the next generation of cut protection,” said Mitch Lewellen, CEO of MCR Safety. “This ANSI Cut Level 4 product features a high level of cut protection with a thinner and more flexible glove. This high visibility orange Kevlar provides greater visibility for a higher level of safety awareness.”

Kevlar can be found in many items, including fire fighter and industrial protective clothing, vehicles, fiber optic cables, mining belts, commercial aircraft, city roads and in many consumer products such as mobile phones, tires, and sporting apparel and equipment.

MCR Safety will offer free samples of this new glove to qualifying customers for a limited time. Participating customers must have a minimum of 50 employees wearing cut protection and be willing to complete a product evaluation form within 30 days. Contact MCR Safety at [email protected] to enroll. The program will be effective March 16th while supplies last. Upon receipt of product evaluation form, you will receive a safety “shake” kit. Samples may be purchased at for those not participating in the product evaluation program or requiring additional product for evaluation.
