Stainless steel fibers for cut-resistant textiles

Yarns for cut resistant textiles and gloves
Bekaert offers a wide range of stainless steel filaments (Bekinox®) for the production of cut-resistant gloves, garments and sleeves. Bekinox® filaments can be blended with different materials and provide a safe solution for glass handling, blade replacement, foam cutting and protective garments.

Strong and flexible

Bekinox® filaments are very thin, but very strong. With diameters as thin as 35 µm, cut-resistant yarns using these filaments are extremely flexible. This assures the comfort of your garments and glove design. The high-strength filaments assure unbeatable cut-resistance.
