Choosing the right glove

When selecting the right hand protection for your application, it is important to consider what your tasks involve and the type, duration and frequency of contact with substances such as grease or water. Different coatings provide different benefits according to the task and circumstances, such as foam coatings for oil grip, and repellent ones for wet environments. Remember to also consider the required dexterity, comfort and flexibility of the glove. Performance, as well as protection, is essential.

Working with HexArmor

In addition to the uvex core range of products, uvex has partnered with HexAmor®, a North American based leader in safety gloves and exclusive licensee of SuperFabric® brand material. The company offers a range of unique and complementary solutions that combat industrial ultra-high cut, puncture, needlestick and impact injuries. 

SuperFabric® Brand material

SuperFabric® brand material is a proprietary finishing process that configures tiny guard plates onto performance fabrics that help provide resistance against the harshest hazards. Guard plates arrest, trap and block needles and other hazards. 

Needlestick protection

SuperFabric® guard plates block and deflect needle hazards or trap and arrest them. Multiple layers of SuperFabric® brand material delivers needlestick resistance level 4 and 5 (level 5 being the highest) according to the ASTM F2878 hypodermic needle puncture test.  

Impact protection

Back-of-hand bones and soft tissue are extremely vulnerable to impact-related hand injuries. Identifying appropriate hand protection is imperative in impact-related issues and pinch injuries - and having the right standard in place is paramount for this process.
