Hydrex from SW Safety Solutions is a flock lining that provides a moisture-controlled environment, keeping hand irritation to a minimum. But comfort isn’t the only thing Hydrex provides. It also offers superior abrasion and puncture resistance and improves grip for better handling of small parts and slippery objects. 

 

Excessive, prolonged exposure to moisture makes skin more susceptible to a number of harmful conditions-redness and chapping being the most common--that can lead to more serious inflammation or even infection if skin becomes severely compromised. Single use (SU) gloves with an interior moisture-wicking layer help both prevent irritation as well as provide a safer environment for skin to heal if it has experienced any trauma that left the skin surface compromised.

 

Managed moisture means less friction and dermal integrity is maintained, allowing the skin to retain its natural protective qualities and serve as a barrier from harmful elements. When that natural barrier is compromised, skin is more susceptible to dermatitis, since bacteria, chemicals and other irritants are more likely to pass through the outer skin layers and be absorbed quicker.

 

The flock lining provides a better interior environment that translates into less frequent glove changes. Your glove becomes like a second skin instead of feeling like a sticky mess that inhibits your job performance.

 

The unique process SW Safety uses allows the glove to remain thin, so as not to impair job performance, while adding strength and durability to the glove to ensure glove integrity as well as a secure fit.

 

Users no longer need to don a cotton liner in addition to a single use glove. Hydrex integrates these two layers into one glove that provides significant productivity benefits as well as a better managed occlusive environment.
