Heavy-duty single-use gloves with a robust grip design

Powerform S8+ single-use nitrile workplace gloves (photo) feature the patent-pending TracTek high density-grip pattern for 200% more tactile grip on wet and oily surfaces to significantly reduce slippage-related damage and injury, according to the manufacturer. The product offers improved safety and chemical protection due to its longer cuff and an irritant-free manufacturing process. TracTek grip technology is the result of extensive research into how a gloved hand interacts with slippery surfaces, resulting in a CAD-engineered traction pattern that prioritizes fluid evacuation while sustaining the largest surface-to-surface contact area via an embossed micro-pyramid grip pattern. This maximizes points of contact and maintains multidirectional flow channels to expel liquid in wet and oily conditions. The Powerform S8+ is designed with two layers of polymer in contrasting exterior and interior colors, boosting glove durability to ANSI Level 2 puncture resistance and making potential glove damage and breaches immediately visually detectable.— SW Safety Solutions, Inc., Union City, Calif.
