Technologies

Nothing is more important than the safety of people in their day-to-day work! uvex's Protecting People philosophy means we are constantly developing our products using pioneering technologies. The objective, the combination of protection, wearer comfort and factors such as weight, climate and fit which all help minimise the onset of fatigue.

Bamboo TwinFlex® Technology

Bamboo TwinFlex®

The patented Bamboo TwinFlex® Technology, a material composition made of a cut protection fibre on the outside and a bamboo comfort fibre on the inside, combines outstanding skin sensory properties with excellent climate characteristics and extremely good cut protection (cut protection level 3 and 5). The bamboo's natural fibre provides very good moisture transport and absorption, as well as a pleasant feeling on the skin. It is free of harmful substances in accordance with Oeko-Tex® Standard 100.

Structure of the Bamboo TwinFlex® Technology with double-face principle:

  • The patented Bamboo TwinFlex® protection function: Strong glass fibres and abrasion-resistant polyamide guarantee optimal mechanical protection.
  • The patented Bamboo TwinFlex® comfort function: Soft, comfortable bamboo yarn for silky wearer comfort and perfect temperature control combined with durable HPPE fibre for high tear resistance.
  • uvex SoftGrip coatings: The climate properties are supported by the newly developed SoftGrip coatings made out of high performance elastomer (HPE). Ret values (= resistance to moisture vapour transfer) of under 20 are achieved with these new coatings. For the user, this means noticeable breathability, which ensures increased wearer comfort.
uvex Xtra Grip Technology

Xtra Grip

The uvex Xtra Grip Technology reliably manages oil and liquids. The unique, multilayer design of the nitrile coating ensures an effective grip, while maintaining a high level of flexibility and outstanding tactile feel and wearer comfort. The robust design delivers optimum durability.

The uvex Xtra Grip Technology is applied to selected uvex safety gloves that protect against mechanical or chemical risks – and they are completely "Made in Germany".

3D-Ergo technology

uvex 3D-Ergo

The revolutionary 3D-Ergo technology is based on the anatomically formed 3D ergo hand shape, the elastic aqua polymer coating system and a 15-gauge fine-knit liner based on polyamide/elastane. The result: Precision throughout right to the fingertips.

uvex gloves with Ergo Technology

uvex ERGO

Natural dexterity – wherever you use them! In addition to the intelligent use of new lining materials, uvex gloves with Ergo Technology have the perfect shape and fit thanks to newly developed flat ergo moulds. These are anatomically shaped moulds that accurately replicate the hand form, so improving the fit and the flexibility of the uvex safety gloves in the long-term.

uvex climazone hand climate management

uvex climazone hand climate management

uvex climazone functions like the body's own climatic system: deviations from the individual climate are balanced and the body temperature remains at a consistently comfortable level. Excess warmth and moisture are effectively removed, reducing the feeling of cold. Temperature regulation is of particular importance in hand protection products. Hands have more sweat glands than any other part of the human body, with 375 per square centimetre on the palm and 200 per square centimetre on the back. During physical activity, the resulting moisture must either be stored or dissipated by the material.

Innovative coating technologies, cutting-edge materials and unique ventilation solutions ensure high product quality and wearer acceptance. The material's breathability, ventilated design and high moisture retention create real comfort and keep hands dry and protected.

Safety gloves for operating touch displays

Safety gloves for operating touch displays

Modern, computerised production processes and manufacturing plants are increasingly controlled via monitors with multi-touch displays. However, there is still the need in these working environments to wear safety gloves. This calls for a glove that enables users to operate these displays using multi-touch gestures.

We have developed and tested an appropriate and optimised product system specially for use with industrial touch displays for a wide range of applications.
