Thermo Plastic Rubber (TPR)

TPR back-of-hand protection just keeps getting better and better.  Our first model, the ZB100, offered wearers a block TPR design, covering the majority of ones’ backhand.  The ZB100’s injection molded TPR padding on the back of hand and fingers provided full dorsal metacarpal protection. This design was eventually awarded the 2009 New Product of the Year award and fueled the development of future Force Flex models. 

In 2011, within the ForceFlex family, we won new product of the year with the HV200.  From here, we have continued building on the initial TPR technology, always placing a high degree of emphasis on protecting a worker’s entire back-of-hand and fingers.

Due to the Oil Industry’s acceptance of TPR glove technology, many advancements have taken place over the past decade and now many industries are taking advantage of back-of-hand impact protection.

Raised rubber materials are now formed or co-injected for back-of-hand protection, providing impact resistance and crush prevention in areas once only protected by cotton and leather.  Workers need maximum coverage and protection across the back-of-hand, dispersing incoming energy from heavy materials and objects.  Metacarpal bones and phalangeal area are parts of the hand impact gloves help protect!
