Protective Industrial Products, Inc. Announces First To Market Glove Technology

Protective Industrial Products, Inc. (“PIP®”), a global leader in hand protection and PPE for the industrial, construction and retail markets, announces the launch of its new line of G-Tek® VR-X gloves featuring a proprietary new coating technology that introduces a new category of multi-faceted hand protection for workers.

The new G-Tek® VR-X line was designed as the first (patent-pending 63/119,080) reusable work glove tested and certified to the EN 374 standard for permeation and microbe penetration to deliver advanced barrier protection against liquids and microbes. Its touchscreen compatibility enables today’s workers to work confidently in most industrial and construction work applications by eliminating the need to remove gloves to operate machinery or devices, helping provide ongoing protection against the cross-contamination of highly shared surfaces and objects. The new G-Tek® VR-X line contains two styles – a general purpose and ANSI A3 cut resistant option – both of which are fully coated with a specially formulated polyurethane treatment to deliver advanced barrier protection while featuring a thin 18-gauge glove liner for enhanced worker comfort.

Joe Milot III, Director of Product Management for PIP®, explains, “We believe the global demand for sanitary work environments will continue to grow rapidly over the next few years.” He continued, “We are committed to investing in R&D to create new products that enhance worker protection and productivity through the development of cutting-edge technology.”

The G-Tek® VR-X line will be launched across all of PIP’s global entities as the concern for hand protection and sanitary work environments remains a crucial topic in worker safety worldwide. The launch of this new line further solidifies PIP’s position as a global leader of hand protection and personal protective equipment (PPE). PIP’s continued goal is to provide its distributors and retailers with choice, service, quality and expertise in an expanded product offering that delivers solutions to meet every need in worker safety.
