Lasts up to ten times longer
29 April 2013
Polyco has launched its Mad Grip gloves range, which is said to deliver impressive anti-abrasion and dry grip performance with high levels of comfort and dexterity. Lasting up to ten times longer than traditionally dipped products, the protection zones incorporate an innovative thermoplastic elastomer (TPE).
A manufacturing technique is used where the use of an injection moulding process involving TPE (a combination of plastic and rubber) is heated to a liquid form and injected at high pressure into a mould cavity containing the glove liner. The thermoplastic solution then cools, securely bonding to the glove fabric.
This process ensures that the exact amount of material is used and the finish is consistent; any extra material can be reground and reused, resulting in very little waste. The ergonomically designed mould incorporates precurved palm and finger construction for a comfortable fit and flexibility. A tread pattern system provides dry grip that requires the wearer to exert less force when gripping an object or surface. Added comfort comes from a breathable, seamless liner.
