Bamboo safety glove combines comfort and cut protection
08 June 2023
UVEX HAS launched a sustainable safety glove featuring patented Bamboo TwinFlex yarn technology that provides comfort, sensitivity and high cut protection all in one.
The uvex Bamboo TwinFlex D xg is an 18-gauge glove that balances cut protection level D with excellent sensitivity and impressive wearer comfort.
Its bamboo-viscose material allows for a flexible fit that adapts precisely to the shape of the hand within three to five minutes and supports touchscreen use. Furthermore, the bamboo fibre offers a silky soft feel against the skin and is dermatologically tested for skin compatibility. The glove's smooth fit, fast absorption and high moisture retention ensure long-lasting comfort and excellent wearer acceptance.
A high level of protection against abrasion and cut hazards is ensured by high-performance fibres, which provide cut protection at 4X41D according to EN 388:2016. The additional uvex protexxion zone between the thumb and index finger delivers double the abrasion resistance (200%) compared to the inside of the glove to increase its service life and durability. Meanwhile, the Xtra-Grip aqua-polymer foam coating offers excellent grip in dry and slightly damp or oily conditions. The glove is also suitable for contact warmth up to +100 °C in accordance with EN 407.
The uvex Bamboo TwinFlex D xg is ideal for a wide variety of requirements, including work in the automotive, food processing, glass and metalworking industries as well as quality control, precision work, and areas with the use of touchscreens and for installing sharp-edged or unburred parts.
In addition to its performance benefits, the uvex Bamboo TwinFlex D xg scores highly on sustainability. It has a long service life and is made from 45% recycled polyamide and bamboo viscose, which is based on renewable raw materials. It also benefits from CO2-neutral production in uvex’s German facilities and is free from solvents.
"The uvex Bamboo TwinFlex D xg is particularly light, thin and flexible with high cut protection, while the touchscreen capability means there is no need to remove the glove while working. It’s a noticeably superior safety glove that delivers comfort, protection and sustainability in one fine 18-gauge cut protection glove," said Clair Weston, marketing manager at uvex.
