AN ANTIMICROBIAL, LIQUID-PROOF WORK GLOVE PREVENTS THE CROSS-CONTAMINATION OF MICROBES

The pandemic has introduced global changes in the environment and it has forced us to modify our approach to everyday life almost overnight. Today we realize that we must now control and mitigate new risks and have learned to overcome many challenges brought on by this global health event.

While we always knew that the industrial workspace or job site is inherently risky with heavy partsPIP® LIQUID-PROOF G-Tek® VR-X™ WORK GLOVES, sharp parts, sparks, splashes and dangerous materials, we never really thought about the potential threat of cross-contamination or the spread of infection between workers in close proximity who share tools, equipment and workspaces. The fact is that the threat has always been there but Covid has elevated it to this new level of consideration and necessitated that it be addressed.

Surface, droplets and even the air can all harbor microbes that have the potential to spread infection. That’s why as the pandemic hit, the PPE item with the highest demand became disposable gloves, for obvious reasons.

HAND SAFETY INNOVATION

Many of the tasks that were being performed with disposable gloves were just not what they were designed to withstand. Many workers were also wearing disposable gloves under their work gloves. The risk and level of worker discomfort could not be ignored by PIP® (Protective Industrial Products). That’s when they came up with G-Tek® VR-X™ – a work glove featuring a proprietary barrier coating that incorporates silver ion technology long recognized for inherent anti-microbial properties. 

Unlike typical glove coatings that provide limited and permeable coverage, PIP® decided to extend the coverage to the whole hand. And, they worked to develop an advanced patent-pending barrier coating that passes the tough aspects of the EN 374 standard for permeation and microbe penetration.

ANTIMICROBIAL WORK GLOVES

G-Tek® VR-X™ is not just a coated seamless knit glove with an extended coating. A great deal of technology was expended to meet the tough EN 347 standard while retaining a glove that is tough, flexible, and comfortable while being touchscreen compatible. The coating’s performance is also enhanced with silver ion technology which is known for its long-term antimicrobial properties.

The G-Tek® VR-X™ line currently consists of a general purpose glove (16-VRX380) and an ANSI A3 cut resistant version (33-VRX180) for operators in higher-risk jobs. Many workers have reported that they appreciate the fact that it is a work glove and that it eliminates the need to double glove with disposables. Safety managers and job site managers appreciate the added level of barrier protection coupled with the reduced waste and litter that comes with discarded disposable gloves.

Perfect for everyone, the G-Tek® VR-X™ glove line prevents the cross-contamination of germs and bacteria and is ideal for factory or job sites where there lots of parts being handled or tools being shared including touchscreens. But don’t take our word for it, tap the link and …
