Visual Breach Detection: These Dual-Layer Gloves Provide Immediate Sign of Tear or Puncture Comprimising Your Personal Safety & Health

While single-use nitrile exam gloves are often affordable, lightweight and worn for their tactile protective barrier and ability to prevent infection across multiple work environments, punctures, tears or chemical degradation can be easy to miss and put the wearer's health at risk, especially in emergency situations.

The last thing any emergency medical technician needs is exposure resulting from a breach in their protective glove’s barrier layer. A torn, punctured or shredded glove can not only put one’s life at risk to infection, it can halt emergency services.

SW® Safety Breach Alert™ Detection

The PF-95GW PowerForm® Biodegradable Nitrile Exam Gloves are FDA approved barrier protection for patient exam use, handling bodily fluids or pathogens and are proven to resist chemotherapy drugs, dangerous fentanyl and gastirc acid for over 4 hours. This glove also features EnerGel® moisturizing technology that soothes the skin as the glove is worn without leaving residue, and is fully biodegrable - certified to breakdown by 92.6% in under 3 years.

The PF-11GY PowerForm® Nitrile Gloves with TracTek® Textured Grip and Breach Alert™ protection provide enhanced grip in wet or oily environments, an 11-inch extended cuff for added splash protection and are FDA approved for patient exam use, handling bodily fluids or pathogens.

Halyard® Health Quick Check® Detection

Patented BLACK-FIRE® Powder-Free Nitrile Exam Gloves are latex-free, 5.5-mil thickness, and designed to handle the hazards many First Responders face – including exposure to bloodborne pathogens and dangerous drugs like fentanyl while thin enough to feel veins to start an I.V. Innovative Quick Check® offers the ability to detect a dangerous barrier breach in the glove surface such as a cut, rip or tear. and allows the wearer to select from either a black color or turn it inside out for a high-visibility orange that's ideal when directing traffic or working in low-visibility situations.
