Reduce Perspiration with Breathable AND Waterproof Industrial Hand Protection

Gloves are beneficial when it comes to protecting the skin against liquids, chemicals and contamination but impervious hand protection has a drawback. What goes on under the gloves is a completely different matter. Water-proSweaty Palmsof gloves create an air-tight barrier around the hands which causes the hands to heavily sweat.

With nothing to wick perspiration, moisture becomes trapped inside the gloves and hands that are softened from sweat are more prone to infection, irritation, dryness and fatigue. Finding the right pair of waterproof work gloves for your team can be a very challenging process.

As a specialist glove manufacturer SHOWA® took on this challenge, and developed the first TEMRES®.

The name TEMRES® comes from a combination of the Japanese words Te, which means “hand”, and Murezu meaning “no humidity”. The TEMRES® glove was revolutionary at the time of its launch and its uniqueness and benefits have become recognized in the market.

The  idea  behind  TEMRES®  came  from  a  challenge  faced  by  workers  who  wanted  to  keep  their  hands  free  from  sweat  while  working  in  wet  environments.  For  many workers in  the  fishing  industry  for  example,  it  was  difficult  to  keep  dry  hands  while  at  the  same  time  working  in  wet  and  oily conditions.  However, it  is  even  much more  difficult  to  achieve  good breathability in fully coated gloves while maintaining oil or water resistance.

Perfected in 2005, TEMRES® is hand protection technology recognized for its waterproof property, added anti-slip grip and amazing breathability that ultimately reduces perspiration.




Temres TechnologyThe concept in TEMRES® technology comes from differences in physical properties of liquid water and water vapor.

The SHOWA® glove engineers used this significant size difference to create two main membranes in the glove that enable the TEMRES® effect: one for its breathability and one for water resistance.

Concretely, one membrane is made from porous foamed polyurethane, helping moisture come out easily and allowing the hand to dry promptly. The other one is the outermost barrier layer made from hydrophilic polymer, which is permeable to moisture but not to water. The difference in concentration of water molecules and temperature leads to water vapor transfer from inside the glove to outside. This is the essential mechanism applied to TEMRES® gloves. The breathability allows hands to stay dry. At the same time its waterproof property still protects the hands from water and liquids.

Innovative Combination of Waterproof & Breathability

Waterpoof. breathable membrane fixed between glove coating and glove liner.

  • Liquid proof protects hand against water and other liquids
  • Innovative membrane keeps water out of the glove, while allowing warm air and moisture from inside to escape.
  • Breathable technology keeps your hands dry and cooler.

Excellent Fit & Premium Comfort

Ergonomic design hand mold replicates the natural curvature of the human hand. This creates less stress and strain for better extended wear comfort, increased productvity and better long term hand health.

Micro-Roughened Nitrile Finish. High Grip Performance

Flexibility and tactility due to thin coating technology. Textured fingertip finish increases protection and provides optimal anti-slip grip in wet or dry environments.
