Ironclad introduces new Heatworx gloves

Jul '06
Based upon tremendously positive industry response to the concept introduced in the fall of 2005, Ironclad is launching the sale and distribution of its new Heatworx gloves, which combine protection from high heat with exceptional dexterity and performance.

Traditional heat gloves are known for protecting hands from high heat and flammable materials. But they're also known for what they can't do -- provide touch and feel that enables the user to perform detailed hands-on tasks.

Ironclad, a leader in high-performance gloves and apparel, is revolutionizing the heat glove market with the introduction of Ironclad's Heatworx gloves, an innovative line of high-dexterity, heat and abrasion-resistant gloves. These gloves incorporate Ironclad's proprietary HotShield synthetic palm and Dupont Kevlar fabrics.

HotShield has the look, feel and durability of leather, yet is heat and shrink resistant; water and oil repellent; and cut, puncture and abrasion resistant.

"There is tremendous need in the marketplace for heat-resistant gloves. Unfortunately, the traditional design and materials meant that while users were protected from the heat, they also had limited motion and dexterity, which impacted the way they were able to do their jobs," said Ed Jaeger, President and CEO of Ironclad.

"We've been able to apply our proprietary technology and material science to this problem -- with the solution being the Heatworx glove," he said.

The Heatworx line debuts with three glove styles with varying levels of heat, abrasion and cut resistance. The line will be sold through Ironclad's retailers and commercial distribution channels. Targeted customers include plumbers, metal fabricators, steel workers, industrial and manufacturing workers, welders and automotive workers. Based on US Bureau of Labor Statistics employment figures for 2000 there are over 9 million workers employed in these industries.
