Questions and Answers about Dunlop Protective Footwear

What are the benefits of the millions of air pockets that Purofort contains?

Looking under the microscope, Purofort has small, even-sized air pockets, whereas Low Pressure PU has fewer, uneven-sized air pockets. This difference makes Dunlop’s boots more flexible, lighter, and more comfortable than low-pressure PU boots.

What are the structural features that make Purofort cut resistant yet flexible?

Dunlop’s cross-linking structure creates a thinner wall making the boots more flexible and cut-resistant, similar to chainmail. This exceptional durability gives the makers and doers of the world all-day protection.

How does Dunlop’s proprietary Purofort differ from rubber?

Compared to rubber, Dunlop’s Purofort has more stretch for all-day wearing comfort, flexibility, and durability. Purofort is 40% lighter, almost twice as flexible, and thermal insulates to keep feet warm during cold conditions and cool when it is warm.

Which Dunlop boots are best suited for the agricultural, construction and food industries, and why?

Dunlop has a Good, Better, Best collection for each segment with over 42 different outsoles designed to get the job done for the end-use environment.
