Bastion Gloves have formulated a innovative level of thinness to their gloves that enables the user to receive stronger tactile feedback when wearing the gloves, without sacrificing the structure and exceptional puncture resistance and strength that Bastion Gloves are known for. This innovation have been named SuperTouch™. This formulation is so strong in fact that it gives more superior barrier protection than latex or vinyl gloves.
Nitrile vs Latex & Vinyl Gloves
Bastion Supertouch™ Blue Long Cuff Gloves are made of Nitrile instead of your standard Latex or Vinyl. This offers a competitive advantage over its competitors in that nitrile gloves is more chemically resistant, resistant to punctures and tears and resistant to fats and oils in the body. It is not uncommon for people to have latex allergies and thus Nitrile gloves are often the safer choice to employ in job sites and workplaces. Additionally, nitrile gloves have a longer shelf life than latex or vinyl.

It is perfect to use with chemicals such as IAQ Pro Extreme Duty Cleaner, IAQ Pro SaniClean or Benefect Decon 30. The strong nitrile makeup combined with SuperTouch™ formulation ensure the restorer gets gloves that enable strong tactile feedback & sensitivity without sacrificing durability. It’s micro-textured makeup ensure that the restorer can grip things equally well, wet or dry.
AQL stands for Accepted Quality limits, and is a method to test for ‘pinhole’ defects that often come to any manufacturing of gloves on a mass scale. This is teste by placing water in gloves over a period time to see if water leaks out. A AQL rating of 1.5 means that under rigorous testing, less than 1.5% of gloves in the tested batches had some sort of defect. Many industries accept a 4% defect rate and so this is considered a high acceptable quality limits score. It is this time of AQL rating that is perfect for restoration in mould remediation, fire damage restoration or sewage cleanup.
