Coats launches Coats Armoren™ cut protection product range

5 August 2020: Coats, the world’s leading industrial thread company has launched Coats Armoren™, a range of cut protect yarns engineered for both protection and comfort in gloves and which offers game-changing solutions to the hand safety industry.

Coats Armoren uses a pioneering engineered yarn technology developed by Coats that incorporates cutting edge innovation for hand safety. New generation stretch fibres and high quality core yarn coverage create laser-fine gloves that are comfortable and have ultimate tactile dexterity. The proprietary helical core construction provides the power of extreme cut resistance; multi-risk and arc flash protection; and high contact heat resistance – even at fine knitting gauges. Armoren Ultracut has proprietary reinforced core constructions to meet extreme laceration hazards. Armoren Ultralight has extra-soft fibres engineered which provide yarns for laser-fine knitted gloves that offer ultimate dexterity and protection.

Ronan Cox, President, Performance Materials, Coats, said: ‘We recognise cut protection products must be as comfortable as they are effective. Coats Armoren responds to the evolving industry demand to meet high safety standards across a wide range of hazardous environments while also offering comfort and performance. We have developed an innovative range of solutions that ensure we continue to meet our customers’ needs.’

Also being brought under the Coats Armoren range are two existing products. Armoren X13 incorporates the latest fibre and spinning technology to provide superior cut resistance and high durability. Armoren X14 has a special fibre blend with cooling technology that wicks moisture and reduces body heat.

Coats has a pioneering record in engineered yarn technology. Its unique combination of innovative technology and technical expertise has been further consolidated through acquisitions. By bringing together the combined expertise and heritage of the Coats, Patrick Yarns and Pharr HP brands, Coats has developed the Coats Armoren range of products.
