About us


Flexion Global, a sister company to Arbortec Forestwear, have been developing high strength technical fibres since 1992. These threads were for the use in chainsaw protective garments which they manufactured, which continues today.

Using the thread technology and applying it to the glass and steel industry, Flexion Global have developed a range of cut level 5 clothing, gloves and security product like none other on the market.

In 2013, Flexion Global launched the new Dymatex thread. Dymatex is one of the thinnest fibres in the world to offer such high levels of strength. When woven into a glove or garment, the cut levels reached are up to 7 times higher than the minimum requirement for cut level 5 EN388 while still being extremely lightweight. For gloves this provides the most amazing levels of dexterity and comfort.

Not only is Dymatex cut resistance, but is also washable without losing strength, softness, flexibility and breathability.
