Your hands – Don’t take them for granted

Human hands are unique and one of our greatest assets, Can you imagine not being able to work with your hands? Hand injuries can vary from minor cuts or irritation to amputations. 20% of disabling workplace injuries involve the hands. Hand injuries include cuts, burns, fractures, amputations, nerve damage and dermatitis. Skin irritation, dermatitis and even poisoning can occurby handling chemicals with bare hands.Midas Safety, manufactures and markets, a diverse assortment of protective gloves. Our gloves provide the protection, dexterity and the comfort needed to achieve higher productivity and experience fewer injuries. A multitude of industries including automotive, medical,chemical, environmental, steel, metal fabrication, food processing, pharmaceuticals, electronics, aerospace, plastics, pulp & paper,household and many more use our gloves. In our supported gloves, other than traditional yarn like cotton, nylon, polyester etc, we also use engineered yarns like Dyneema®, Kevlar®,Stainless Steel Reinforced, Glass Fiber, High Tenacity Nylon, Thunderon® and Thermolite®. We use a variety of polymers including Nitrile, PVC, Rubber and PU to give extra protection against mechanical hazards on our supported gloves. We have a wide range of unsupported gloves specially designed for giving maximum protection from chemicals for longer duration without sacrificing the dexterity. We use Natural Rubber, Nitrile, Neoprene and a blend of different polymers to give protection against specific chemicals. We provide customized solutions for developing gloves tailored to your specific requirements. Gloves can be designed for maximum protection without sacrificing dexterity. There is a wide range of gloves to suit each of your daily requirement of hand protection and you can be sure to find one of our gloves to meet your specific requirement. Our expansive range of gloves addresses a multitude of hand protection needs ranging from extreme tactile sensitivity to CE Level 5 cut resistance to severe cold.

Note: This Chemical Resistance Chart is presented as a guide only. This does not consider the permeability of gloves, chemical combinations, temperature, length of time that the gloves is in contact with the chemical and thickness of the glove. These factors will alter or effect the performance of the glove. Actual on-the-job testing of gloves is recommended. Always read material Safety Data Sheets before using any chemicals.

Unsupported Gloves  (Choosing The Right Glove)
Hands are probably the most industrious part of human anatomy. Selecting the right glove for the job at hand is essential to ensure user safety and product protection. Frontier Safety offers an array of gloves to suit a multitude of requirements. Choosing the appropriate elastomer (glove material) for a given application is a crucial step in selecting the right glove. Listed below are some main factors to be considered.

Supported Gloves - Latex
Natural Rubber Latex provides an excellent barrier for supported gloves. Supported Latex gloves offer liquid resistance, puncture resistance, comfort and outstanding value. They also provide superb gripping power in wet and dry conditions. Our supported Latex glovesare available in a variety of textures, thicknesses, color and lengths making them suitable for a wide range of applications. Component materials of our Latex gloves comply with all relevant federal regulations for food contact. Midas premium Latex styles are treated with Actifresh to promote freshness.

Supported Gloves  - Foam Lined PVC
Our Alaska™ series is ideal for applications involving harsh environments. Featuring a specially formulated low temperature PVC coating, this well insulated PVC style protects against all the elements. Our Alaska™ Insulated PVC gloves remain flexible at temperatures as low as -32° F. We use a four-layer foam based liner that keeps hands warm and dry. All Alaska™ Foam Lined PVC styles are treated with Actifresh to minimize odors by controlling the build-up of bacteria.

Supported Gloves - PVC
Polyvinyl Chloride or PVC is the thermoplastic polymer of Vinyl and Chloride. PVC provides excellent resistance to most acids, oils, fats, caustics, petroleum hydrocarbons, alcohols and glycol ethers. PVC is relatively economical compared to other supported glove polymers and yet it provides reliable abrasion and chemical protection. The resins and plasticizers used to make PVC gloves can be carefully regulated to provide varying levels of chemical resistance. PVC gloves function well in temperatures ranging from 25°F (-4°C) to 150°F (66°C).Our Insulated PVC gloves are made with a special PVC formulation that remains flexible at temperatures as low as -32°F.All premium PVC styles are treated with Actifresh to minimize odors by controlling the build-up of bacteria.

Supported Gloves - Neporene
Like Nitrile, Neoprene is a synthetic rubber that offers reliable protection against a wide range of harmful chemicals. Neoprene is well suited for use with alcohols, acids, ketones, detergents and greases. Neoprene is slightly less abrasion, cut and snag resistant than Nitrile. However, Neoprene gloves have greater elasticity, making them more comfortable and less likely to cause hand fatigue. All component materials of Midas Safety Neoprene gloves comply with all relevant federal regulations for food contact. All Supported Neoprene styles are treated with Actifresh to minimize odors by controlling the build-up of bacteria.

Supported Gloves -  Nitrile
Nitrile is a synthetic rubber originally developed as a substitute for Natural Rubber Latex. Nitrile is highly resistant to abrasions, cuts, punctures and snags. In addition, it offers protection against solvents, oils, greases, acids, caustics and animal fats. By carefully controlling the coating thicknesses and linings of our Nitrile gloves, we are able to produce a range of tough Nitrile hand protection suitable for every imaginableapplication. Furthermore, all of our Nitrile Gloves are Silicone free and treated with actifresh.

Gloves can be made applying dots, blocks, criss cross and solid screen palm coats to one side or both sides of the Machine Knit Shells. In addition, private labeling of Machine Knit gloves by incorporating customer logos into the coating patterns. All the machine knit shells are made with component materials that comply with all relevant federal regulations for food contact.

Kelver Cut Resistant Sleeves & Gloves
DuPont® Kevlar® fiber is light, strong,cut resistant and heat resistant making it the ideal choice for machine knit gloves.Midas Safety, Inc. is certified by DuPont as a licensed Kevlar® glove and sleeve manufacturer.Properties of Kevlar®: Cut/slash resistant l High tensile strength (Five times stronger than steel) lHigh temperature resistance lWill not support combustion lComponent materials comply with all relevant federal regulations for food contact.

Cut Resistant Sleeves Gloves
Traditional cut resistant gloves made from metal mesh and heavy gauge wires tend to be bulky and lacking in flexibility. Our new generation cut resistant gloves incorporate advancements in yarn engineering, knitting technology and dipping. These innovations enable us to produce lightweight, form fitting, flexible gloves that provide excellent cut protection and grip. All of our cut resistant products are certified to CE Standard EN 388: Mechanical Hazards.
