Ironclad Performance Wear announced the launch of their new Command Series glove line. The Command Series incorporates cutting-edge nanoparticle technology to create highly durable touchscreen work gloves. Unlike common coated touchscreen fabrics, which lose conductivity easily, Ironclad infused their abrasion resistant synthetic leather with conductive carbon ions. The result is permanent conductivity throughout the synthetic leather — with touchscreen capability that will not wear out for the life of the gloves.
“The amount of technology utilized in the workplace today, such as tablets, touchscreen input terminals and cell phones, has accelerated rapidly,” says Eric Jaeger, Ironclad’s General Manager. “The challenge that we had to overcome was how to incorporate touchscreen capability into our gloves without compromising the strict quality and durability standards that define the Ironclad brand.” After months of materials testing and sampling, the team at Ironclad was finally able to achieve this. With the infusion of nanoscale carbon ions into their premium synthetic leather, Ironclad has been able to create a touchscreen material with higher conductivity than a human finger — while still maintaining the durability and 16 point fit system that the brand is known for.
The new Command Series line is comprised of 18 touchscreen gloves, built to withstand heavy duty work environments. The Command Series utilizes four different glove chassis:
- Utility: Open cuff design with maximum dexterity
- Pro: Hook and loop closure, terry cloth sweat wipe, multiple palm options
- Grip: A silicone printed palm that dramatically increases wet and dry grip
- Impact: Highly flexible, full finger and back of hand impact protection
The Command Series is available now at www. ironclad.com and will be available at hardware retailers & safety distributors nationwide in 2019.
