Unigloves launches enhanced range of single use gloves


Automotive hand protection specialists 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.

Unigloves says its gloves have been designed to be stronger and as a result offer greater durability and lifespan compared to traditional gloves on the market.

The new Pro.Tect range combines multiple features for workers in Tier One and Two 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.

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.

Interior and exterior diamond texture for maximum grip, even when working with oils and greases, Pro.Tect Orange HD features an ergonomic grip and score maximum points for dexterity in international tests.

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

“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,” added Gillespie.
