TECHNOLOGIES INSIDE THIS GLOVE
By removing the chemicals used in the manufacturing process from the final glove, our TouchTek technology provides a safer environment on the inside, while increasing performance capabilities on the outside. Unique post-processing technology produces a glove with less chemicals that is up to 75% cleaner than others available on the market, as verified through USP 661 testing.
The TouchTek advantage is two-fold. First, by reducing the chemical residue, potential skin reactions are minimized. Chemicals serve the purpose of creating a stronger glove material and increasing barrier properties, but many act as irritants to the hand. The residue can trigger an adverse reaction, such as redness, dryness or itchiness, on the skin and within skin membrane.
In fact, some sufferers believe they are experiencing an allergic reaction to certain glove types, when—in reality—it’s actually from the residual chemicals used to improve the glove’s strength.
The second benefit comes in the form of workplace productivity. Not only does eliminating the residue protect the hand, but it also protects the work environment. Because TouchTek leaves a virtually chemical-free environment, smudges, oils and residue that stick to work surfaces or compromise product integrity are eliminated. Overall performance and efficiency remain uncompromised.
TouchTek technology not only protects surfaces from glove-based contamination, but promotes skin and hand health, minimizing the risk of common skin conditions such as dermatitis, type IV allergies as well as the costs associated with lost worker productivity.
HIGH PERFORMANCE GRIP TECHNOLOGY
Our patent-pending technology TracTek™ is the latest innovation in patterned nitrile grip, designed to greatly increase grip on wet and oily surfaces. The pattern employs a uniquely efficient raised diamond micro-pyramid grip design that channels liquids away from key areas of the hand where traction is most present, and offers 200% more tactile grip on wet and oily surfaces relative to similar products:
– Maximum points of contact produce best possible grip.
– Rigid design ensures grip does not weaken with time and wear.
– Pyramid pattern keeps multidirectional flow channels open between points of contact to
efficiently expel liquid without sacrificing grip.
Tractek’s features create an unprecedented grip ability in a nitrile glove. This design affords maximum grip in all conditions without sacrificing durability or sensitivity.
High standards for grip technology are vitally important for both employers and employees. Gloves with superior grip reduce product damage, contamination, workplace accidents and injuries. In addition to product shrinkage costs from damages, lower quality gloves cost employers higher workers’ compensation costs and lost work hours from injuries sustained on the job. The benefits to employees are clear – more reliable grip means fewer accidents, less medical time off, and lower medical costs.
Grip Performance of TracTek grip gloves was compared with that of competitive gloves of similar thickness, for dry, wet and oily conditions. ASTM F2961, the standard test method for characterizing Dry Grip Performance of gloves using a torque meter, was used for this comparison. The same method was modified accordingly to employ in wet and oily conditions.
Our MilTek technology delivers a more consistent material thickness across the entire glove – from fingers to palm to cuff. This breakthrough technology involves a production process that delivers a smoother thickness gradient – which is the thickness deferential between the three areas – that gets as close to zero as possible.
So what does this all mean to you, the single use glove user? You do experience greater finger dexterity, which results in greater productivity and efficiency. You don’t experience finger fatigue. You’ll be much less prone to long term musculoskeletal disorders. You’ll benefit from greater protection from contaminants. And, the thicker cuff will result in a stronger glove, so fewer glove changes and less wasted gloves.
As a result of our specifically engineered polymer formulations and intricate dipping motion control, a MilTek-produced glove demonstrates less tear, better tactility and a better quality consistency. The bottom line: You get performance without the pain.
