Introducing
G-Tek® VR-X™

The FIRST reusable coated seamless knit glove offering Advanced Barrier Protection – a proprietary coating technology found only in G-Tek® VR-X™ series gloves.

Disposable gloves are NOT an ideal, sustainable, or effective solution for worker confidence. Workers must wear gloves that help protect them from cuts and abrasion while providing barrier protection. Gloves need effective grip to help workers be productive. That’s why they need G-Tek® VR-X™ gloves.

WHAT IS ADVANCED BARRIER PROTECTION?

PIP®, in collaboration with its key partners, have developed a new polyurethane-based coating that offers unprecedented barrier protection in a work glove.
