The ATG Maxiflex Active Pink glove is a world first. It contains Vitamin E and Aloe Vera to condition the hand, while still providing maximum level 4 abrasion. Companies can support the NBCF with the knowledge that at the same time, they will also be improving hand safety, comfort, and dexterity on their site. MaxiFlex Active Pink (Product code 34-814) is available in standard glove sizes 6 to 11 (XS to XXL) so everyone on site can show their support.
ATG® has become the first glove company to achieve the Skin Health Alliance (SHA) dermatological accreditation.
Glove cleanliness is something ATG® takes very seriously. Committed to the environment, employee and consumer safety ATG® has invested a significant amount of time, money and resource to ensure all aspects of their supply chain operates to the best practices, latest standards and/or newest regulations. Examples, which formed part of the SHA submission, include the compliance to the new European Community Regulation on chemicals and their safe use within all their factories (REACH — EC 1907/2006) and the Oeko-Tex (confidence in textiles) accreditation.
MaxiFlex Elite is the very latest addition to the MaxiFlex family and we are pleased to announce that we will be bringing this exciting new glove in earlier than expected, due to successful trials and substantial interest. This glove is bound to be a game changer in the glove industry.
ATG , in it’s never ending quest to remain the world leader in glove technology, has recently received certification to the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 in what is another world first for a major glove manufacturer. ATG remains a front-runner in value-adding benefits to their many users around the world.
One of their main reasons for applying for this certification is ensure that ATG differentiates themselves from the many other major glove manufacturers still using toxic solvents in the manufacture of gloves which not only harms the environment, but also has potentially harmful affects if absorbed through the skin through contact while wearing gloves
Oeko-Tex Standard 100 is an international testing and certification system for textiles, limiting the use of certain chemicals. It was developed in 1992.
Being on the forefront of hand protection innovation, ATG has recently made a feature standard for their entire MaxiCut range—a reinforced area between thumb and forefinger. This is believed to be another world-first from ATG.
The market has been asking for this feature for some time now and this innovation is certain to be popular, particularly in the metal and glass industries where the application usually involves the handling of sharp edged sheets or objects. These objects are usually carried in the 4 finger on top/ thumb below format and thus the area between the thumb and forefinger would be the most exposed to wear and tear which could lead to potentially harmful cut injuries.
Strikethrough is the term given when the coating of the gloves appears on the inside of the glove. To check for strikethough, simply turn the glove inside out. You should only see liner material. If you see any coating material on the inside, then the glove has strikethrough.
Glove liners are dipped in a process which should result in the liner being coated on the outside of the glove liner only.
However, most manufacturers do not have the technology to do this or the type of coating does not allow for this, which means that strikethrough of the coating occurs. This results in the coating coming in direct contact with the skin.
