FARMERS BRANCH, Texas, May 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Ironclad Performance Wear Corporation (OTCQB: ICPW), the recognized leader in performance hand safety solutions announced today that it has been issued a new patent for its Ironclad Visual Engineering (IVE) technology.
"Ironclad Visual Engineering, or "IVE," is a new technology that makes objects stand out to the human eye with greater clarity and from greater distances than conventional glove markings," commented Eric Jaeger, Vice President of R&D for Ironclad Performance Wear. "The development of IVE has been a multi-year initiative of our team. We wanted to create a truly different technology and unique solution for industrial athletes where visibility is critical to ensuring worker safety. Our new IVE technology increases hand safety awareness for jobsite safety managers, as well as dramatically enhancing hand signal recognition for crane and heavy machinery operators."
IVE technology is based on human perception research and relies on four key design elements: optical pattern recognition, durable contrast, color optimization and ultraviolet fluorescence. It is especially effective in low light situations such as dawn and dusk, and has multiple applications beyond gloves, such as hard hats and safety apparel.
"The response to our new IVE products has been as remarkable as the technology itself," commented Ron Broussard, Ironclad's SVP of industrial sales. "This technology is actively being tested and within less than 12 months its application is spreading to more and more products and industries. HSE managers and users alike understand and appreciate what it offers."
