Effective hand protection means striking the perfect balance between reliable protection and a comfortable fit – only safety gloves that are worn can fulfill their purpose. uvex is continuously developing innovative fibre and coating technologies such as the patented Bamboo TwinFlex® technology to deliver both wearer requirements.
For everyday use, the balance of cut and tear resistance properties is critical. The required level of cut protection is achieved through a high concentration of glass fibres, however, this could result in the tear resistance being compromised. The techniques used by uvex to combine materials such as glass or steel fibres, are key to achieving this balancing act and delivering wearer comfort and acceptance, as skin should only come into contact with fibres that are non-irritating.
Features such as fit and dexterity change yet again when coatings are applied which are equally important and needed to obtain high levels of durability and ensure cost effectiveness.
