Some types of cooking mitts are also made out of Kevlar because of their heat resistant properties. Many motorcyclists are now starting to wear Kevlar gloves because of their strength, flexibility and cut resistant properties.
Made from Aramid Kevlar fibers, the gloves have excellent cut resistance and thermal resistance. They also have good resistance to organic solvents and weak acids.
