Uniglove gets to grips with new silicone-free PRO.TECT range

Automotive hand protection specialist Unigloves has launched an enhanced range of single use gloves dedicated to the automotive sector.

The new PRO.TECT Range features three silicone free, nitrile gloves to meet increasing demand for silicone free manufacturing environments, making them ideal for painting or bonding applications, removing the threat of glove-borne paint contamination and expensive re-working.

Designed to be stronger and as a result offer greater durability and lifespan compared to traditional gloves in the market, the new PRO.TECT range combines multiple features for workers in Tier 1 and 2 automotive sectors and across all aftermarket environments.

Joining the silicone free nitrile gloves – PRO.TECT Orange HD, PRO.TECT Blue and PRO.TECT Black, is a high quality, natural rubber glove, PRO.TECT Latex HD.

Wider user benefits of the new PRO.TECT Range include chemical resistance, providing protection against paints, oils, grease, brake fluids, thinners and diesel, the PRO.TECT range has been independently tested for chemical permeation by SATRA and certified to EN 374.

DiamondGrip Technology sees an interior and exterior diamond texture for maximum grip, even when working with oils and greases. PRO.TECT Orange HD features an ergonomic grip and scored maximum points for dexterity in international tests, the firm said.

The nitrile construction also means improved resistance to snagging and scuffs while offering high-level dexterity and comfort.

“Our comprehensive PRO.TECT Automotive gloves range combines performance, chemical protection, comfort and durability, offering a fantastic solution for workers right across the automotive sector,” said Donald Gillespie, Marketing Director of Unigloves. “Providing wearers with major benefits over traditionally used gloves, the fact they are more durable and resistant to scuffing and snagging means better cost in use for many situations.”

As part of the launch of PRO.TECT range launch Unigloves is offering free samples to enable companies to trial the new products.
