In the process of manufacturing gloves, there is a case that a tiny amount of oil such as lubricant oil etc may remain.
Impurities like non-volatile oils, or organosilicon polymers (silicone) etc may be eluted from the glove surface if such a tiny amount of oil remains. Impurities easily adhere to products via gloves, however, it is hard to find such a transcription from gloves by human eyes.
Note, eluted impurities from gloves could not only interfere with manufacturing process but also increase product failures.
Bad influence of eluted impurities from gloves
If any impurity is sticking on, the painting surface repels paint and will not become a smooth surface after painting.
In glass manufacturing the product which has any transcription of eluted impurities on the surface would be rejected as defect.
Some eluted impurities from gloves may cause the discoloring or rusting of the product surface.
SHOWA is challenging to reduce transcription of
eluates from the resin surface of gloves.
In order to reduce oil bleeding in the process of manufacturing gloves, we are strictly operating process controls such as material compounding and pretreatment of knitted glove and so on.
We offer a wide range of hand protections that are designed for anti-transcription of eluates from the surface.
Anti-transcription and low-lint product lineup
Knitted hand protections generate lint by rubbing themselves.
Such lint from hand protections causes contamination into your products as dust.
Anti-transcription and anti static product lineup
Human body is charged even in natural body movement like hand moving.
Many electronic devices are sensitive against electrostatic discharge.
When handling those electronic devices, workers should not forget to prevent electrostatic discharge (ESD) which are transferred from hands to workpieces.
Anti-transcription and cut resistant product lineup
When dealing with something sharp, workers need to pay attention to hand injuries.
However hit by sharp objects such as burrs may happen unpredictably even though workers pay enough attention.
Bad influence of ionic impurities
It is said that instability in and degradation of device operation occur due to ionic impurities.
For applications requiring high levels of electrical properties, the amount of ionic impurities should be low.
SHOWA proposes the hand protection that can be applied to fields requiring less ionic impurities.
