Grip it MAX

Glove goes for gold

Polyco’s innovative use of 21st-century technology has been recognised and rewarded by an institution that has been championing glove development for more than 375 years.

Polyco’s dry-grip glove, the Grip It MAX, was named by the Worshipful Company of Glovers in February as the winner of its Worshipful Company of Glovers 2015 Golden Glove Award for Innovation. Granted its royal charter in 1638 by Charles I the institution makes the award to glove products that use new technology or techniques, are unique in concept, design, or performance, and which help wearers achieve something that could not be achieved previously.

Grip It MAX is made using TPE – thermoplastic elastomer – which is injected into the glove mould in a liquid state and dries in a way that still allows great flexibility. The fact that the glove follows the natural positon of the hand at rest, combined with a specially designed tread pattern on the palm and fingertips, results in exceptional gripping ability in both dry and wet conditions.
