Silicone-coated gloves for window manufacturing

| By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey

The RepTek Grip silicone palm-coated gloves provide adhesion resistance paired with high cut resistance and dexterity. Hot butyl can become bothersome when it sticks to gloves, shortening the life and costing more money. This new silicone coating prevents sealant or hot-melt buildup and stands up to everyday wear and tear, lasting up to six times longer than most standard gloves. The GPD487 (photo) features a Hyperon ANSI cut-level A5 shell, and the GPD787 uses the company’s AeroDex Technology to achieve cut level A7 protection. Both options are cool and lightweight, providing long-wearing cut-resistance, so workers do not have to sacrifice dexterity or comfort to stay safe. — Magid Glove & Safety Manufacturing Company, LLC, Romeoville, Ill.
