  • Technical Features & Benefits

    Indigo blue colour for easy identification of personal protection in a high risk environment

    - Optimized wall thickness (10% thicker) secures ACPP permeation times for effective barrier protection Low risk of pin-holes due to increased wall thickness, visual inspection and water leak testing before packing GL I AQL 0.65 leads to high barrier protection (1)

    Polyurethane lining with hydrophilic and hydrophobic elements facilitates damp donning and double gloving (1)

    Improved grip level to secure safe handling of laboratory equipment

    Provides superior comfort to avoid hand fatigue (specifically against Z+ from Berner)

  • Low allergenic profile of Gammex Technology.

    Protein and Endogenous Allergen Reduction Leaching (P.E.A.R.L.) Technology that delivers a glove with extremely low extractible proteins, reducing risk of latex sensitization (Typical values are below < 10 g/g (Modified Lowry / HPLC). Fitkit : Non detectible (very low allergenicity) Sum of the four clinically relevant allergens measured below > 0.03 g/g (9, 10, 11, 12)

    - Unique (PV100) accelerator becomes gases which are completely consumed during processing leaving non detectable chemical accelerator residue thereby reducing the risk of contact dermatitis.
