A new glove innovation from Kimberly-Clark Professional offers protection, precision and comfort without compromise
For the most demanding scientific applications, you need a glove that offers the perfect balance of precision, protection and comfort.
Inadequate or compromised gloves can increase the risk of self-contamination or other injuries to the scientist, and the consequences can be significant:
While many gloves may look alike, not all gloves can protect the integrity of your science and the safety of scientists. Here are some questions to ask when selecting gloves for your lab or cleanroom:
After extensive R&D, Kimberly-Clark Professional has introduced two new gloves that meet the criteria above: Kimtech Prizm multi-layered neoprene nitrile gloves and Kimtech Prizm Xtra multi-layered neoprene nitrile gloves.
The gloves were developed specifically for higher risk lab environments in the biotech, non-sterile pharmaceutical and university research fields, where science and safety must work hand-in-hand.
Designed for scientists by scientists, Kimtech Prizm gloves are crafted with a proprietary combination of polymers proven to protect against a wide range of common chemicals. An innovative technology ensures that the multi-layer neoprene-nitrile glove is one of the thinnest Type A certified gloves on the market, making it a top choice for the most demanding scientific applications.
The gloves also offer:
The gloves are PPE Cat III certified according to PPE Regulations (EU) 2016/425 and EN ISO 374-1:2016 Type A (JKLMPT) chemical splash protection, EN ISO 374-5:2016 microorganism and virus protection and tested according to ASTM D6978-05 against a wide range of cytotoxic drugs.
They are latex and powder-free with a nitrile accelerator-free donning layer to reduce the risk of allergic reactions. Ambidextrous with a beaded cuff for strength, the gloves are available in a wide range of sizes to ensure proper fit.
In addition to these benefits, the gloves can be recycled through The RightCycle Programme.
This groundbreaking service enables research andmanufacturing facilities, universities and a variety of businesses to collect previously hard-to- recycle items, such as Kimberly-Clark Professional nitrile gloves and single-use apparel items, and convert them into new consumer good.
