“A REVOLUTION IN GLOVE TECHNOLOGY – FOR HANDS THAT NEED EXTRA PROTECTION”
With the arrival of the new range of SHIELDskin CHEM™ safety gloves, SHIELD Scientific offers a level of “compliance, comfort and protection” that has never before been achieved. SHIELDskin CHEM™ gloves have been specially designed for laboratory use and in order to protect you from chemical hazards.
SHIELDskin CHEM™ safety gloves are classed as Category III PPE according to the PPE Regulation (EU) 2016/425 and as such are designed against the mortal and the irreversible risks. Only Category III PPE gloves are likely to offer laboratory personnel the necessary level of protection.
APPLICATION OF GLOVE
The neoprene/nitrile formulation is totally new and the double-dipping process known as twinSHIELD™ technology. SHIELDskin CHEM™ safety gloves have been specially developed to protect users from chemical hazards, without compromising dexterity and comfort.
PROTECTION FROM CHEMICAL HAZARDS
SHIELDskin CHEM™ safety gloves resist to permeation for at least 30 minutes against 6 out of the 18 chemicals listed in ISO 374-1:2016+A1:2018 (tested according to EN 16523-1:2015+A1:2018).
PROTECTION FROM MICRO-BIOLOGICAL HAZARDS
SHIELDskin CHEM™ gloves are tested to demonstrate compliance with ISO 374-5:2016 for protection against biohazard. SHIELDskin CHEM™ safety gloves have an Acceptable Quality Level (AQL) of 0.25 according to EN 374-2:2014 Level 3. This is the highest level of protection, thereby giving users an increased level of confidence in their biosafety procedures.
SHIELD Scientific avoids using a mixture of chemical accelerators in the manufacturing process. By using only one specific chemical accelerator, the risk of type IV allergic contact dermatitis (or type IV hypersensitivity) is limited. Furthermore, there are non-detectable levels of chemical allergens using aqueous solution extraction (Phosphate buffered solution) and High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) assay method for quantitative analysis. SHIELDskin CHEM™ gloves are latex-free and therefore the risk of a type I allergy (or type I hypersensitivity) to latex protein is completely eliminated.
