Tuff-N-Lite® Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) was created with input from EH&S managers and glass workers across America. The request was to develop a fabric that was strong, highly cut and abrasion resistant yet as soft, flexible and comfortable to wear. The extreme heat and dirty conditions found in most glass manufacturing facilities made it a necessity that this new fabric be easily laundered for daily wear by the glass workers.
We recognized early on that Tuff-N-Lite® PPE must be comfortable for the end user to make compliance for the EH&S managers a non-issue. Many existing users report that not only is Tuff-N-Lite® more cut resistant than old fashioned aramids, it is soft, flexible and as comfortable to wear as cotton. The addition of Micro-Texpur® anti-microbial to Tuff-N-Lite® PPE greatly reduces bacteria which minimizes infections and body odor. Tuff-N-Lite® PPE is easily laundered in commercial or residential washing machines using cold water and tumble dried.
