History

SuperFabric® all started because of a simple question: “Can a glove be created that will stop a medical needle or surgical knife?” Four months after Dr. Young-Hwa Kim was posed with this seemingly impossible notion, he had conceived how to create such a glove, and SuperFabric® was begun in 1996. With this industry-first product, Higher Dimension Materials, Inc. (HDM, Inc.) was founded. Since then, SuperFabric® materials have been adapted for uses in industrial, safety, sporting, clothing, and military applications, just to name a few. Performance is enhanced through the configuration of tiny armor plates which provide resistance to a variety of harsh elements – like no other material on the market. SuperFabric® is an ideal solution as it is uniquely flexible, even when used in multiple layers. Products made with SuperFabric® protect from both straight edged cuts and variable situations.
