Medical and municipal waste disposal carries with it a risk of serious and possibly life-threatening infection. Lurking among the refuse could be anything from a dirty diaper to toxic or hazardous materials.

Jagged, sharp or pointed items such as metals, plastics and lumber can instantly cut flesh, and having an open wound in a dirty environment puts operators at grave risk to serious infection. Accidental needle sticks can transmit blood­borne diseases such as hepatitis, tetanus and HIV/AIDS that could lead to life-threatening or long-term chronic disease. Accidental needle stick injuries pose a considerable expense to the employer as well.

TurtleSkin® is a family of patented materials from Warwick Mills  that are constructed with tightly woven with high-strength  fibers engineered to be very thin (with a thickness equal to three sheets of paper) yet very protective. Turtleskin’s weave interlocks aramid and polyester fibers so tightly they won’t shift or leave gaps for penetrations to slide past.

SuperFabric® from HexArmor® features a configuration of tiny guard plates providing superior performance without sacrificing dexterity.

Alycore™ from Majestic® Glove is an extremely resilient stainless steel mesh that is woven with super thin threads of iron and carbon. Alycore™ is lightweight, flexible, breathable, recyclable and washable.

Punkban™ pioneering breakthrough from Superior Glove® has been made possible by bringing together innovative, leading-edge textile technology to combine spinning and weaving of Kevlar® by a unique method.
