Next-generation nitrile gloves redefine lab safety standards

Jan 12 2024

Kimberly-Clark Professional™ introduces the Kimtech™ Polaris™ Nitrile Gloves, marking a significant advancement in lab safety and comfort. Designed to meet the demanding needs of scientists working in challenging environments, these gloves prioritise both safety and comfort.

Crafted for optimal protection and strength, Kimtech™ Polaris™ Nitrile Gloves excel in superior dexterity and comfort. The gloves hold US Ergonomics certification, affirming tangible ergonomic benefits by enhancing comfort, fit, and reducing the risk of injuries. Positioned as the most protective glove within the Kimtech™ portfolio, these gloves are set to redefine safety standards.

Franck Bureth, EMEA Regional Scientific Category Leader at Kimberly-Clark Professional™, emphasised the impact of the glove design on user well-being. Bureth stated: “The Kimtech™ Polaris™ Nitrile Glove design alleviates stress on joints, ligaments, and tendons, reducing workplace hand injuries related to repetitive use and hand strain. This, in turn, enhances worker efficiency through improved grip and performance.”

Beyond these advantages, the gloves feature a proprietary nitrile formulation and premium grade, coupled with cutting-edge manufacturing technology. Offering enhanced chemical splash protection (Type B (JKOPT)) and extended chemotherapy drug splash protection, Kimtech™ Polaris™ Nitrile Gloves set a new standard in safety.

The Polaris difference

Kimtech™ Polaris™ Nitrile Gloves cater to laboratory, life science, and non-sterile pharmaceutical manufacturing environments. Rigorously tested against 29 common chemicals and 24 chemotherapy drugs, these gloves effectively close lab coat gaps for maximum protection. Available in two lengths (25cm and 30cm), they ensure maximum protection.

Ensuring optimal skin health protection, Kimtech™ Polaris™ Nitrile Gloves minimise skin reactions through non-detectable levels of vulcanizing agent. Textured fingertips and a smooth finish prevent drops and breakage incidents, even in wet conditions. The proprietary formulation, coupled with the distinctive Dark Magenta™ colour, makes it an effective addition to scientific environments.

Recyclable through The RightCycle Programme

Kimtech™ Polaris™ Nitrile Gloves are recyclable through the RightCycle by Kimberly-Clark Professional® program. Pioneering large-scale recycling efforts for non-hazardous lab and cleanroom PPE waste, this initiative transforms used PPE into new consumer goods.
