Consider your hands in a completely relaxed state. You will notice that your fingers are tilted toward the palm and slightly curved inward. Your thumb, on the other hand, will spread in a completely different direction, away from your index finger, and it will more or less be in a loose 'C' shape, known as the 'opposition position'.
During the development of the uvex rubiflex S, great importance was placed on ensuring that the protective gloves are adapted to this 'resting shape' that is typical of the hand, so that the wearer is not forced to fight against the uncomfortable stiffness of a "board-like" flat protective glove. Wearing stiff, poorly shaped gloves can lead to early onset fatigue, which over the long-term leads to reduced concentration and increases the likelihood of an accident or near miss.
The snug fit of the uvex rubiflex S is critical to ensure protection, hand mobility and comfortable gripping dexterity.
The uvex rubiflex S chemical protection gloves enable precise work thanks to the flexible material, enabling a high level of tactile sensation. The ergonomic shape provides a reliable fit, while the highly absorbent cotton lining keeps skin dry and comfortable. The perfect fit and tactile sensation is deal for precise work, making these gloves suitable for a wide range of applications.

People must protect themselves against a wide variety of different substances that they come into contact with in the agricultural sector, including oils, greases, alkalis, solvents and crop protection products. The uvex rubiflex S features high abrasion resistance and offers effective protection when handling chemicals, using crop protection products, handling chemicals, paints and varnishes, or cleaning (e.g. cleaning and disinfecting livestock buildings).
Chemicals, lubricants and varnishes are used widely in the production of vehicles. The uvex rubiflex S provides reliable protection when coming into contact with chemical substances in the automotive industry, as well as a high level of abrasion resistance. The uvex rubiflex is also free of substances that interfere with wetting agents and is therefore certified in accordance with VDMA 24364 [A1/A2-L/W], making it ideal for use in painting work.
When carrying out industrial work and operating machinery, workers often come into contact with rough surfaces and hazardous liquid substances such as oil, grease and chemicals, so reliable hand protection is essential. The uvex rubiflex S gloves protect industrial workers from chemical and mechanical risks while also providing maximum wearer comfort, and the high abrasion resistance offers effective protection when handling chemicals.
Change your safety gloves regularly
It is vital to change your safety gloves before hazardous substances are able to penetrate the glove membrane. This penetration by hazardous substances at a molecular level is called permeation. For example, the maximum permeation time after contact with chemicals is >480 minutes. More information about handling hazardous substances safely can be found in the relevant safety data sheets.
