LAKE FOREST, Ill., Jan. 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Microflex Corporation, a subsidiary of BarrierSafe Solutions International® (BSSI), a leading provider of latex and synthetic barrier protection products, is excited to announce the global launch of XCEED™ nitrile disposable examination gloves.
“Be prepared for XCEED™ to revolutionize the examination glove markets,” said Kathy Zanzucchi, Director of Marketing. “This product combines the latest in nitrile polymer technology with state-of-the-art manufacturing capability to deliver unparalleled thin-mil performance characteristics.”
XCEED™ mimics the soft fit, feel and tactile sensitivity of disposable natural rubber latex gloves while delivering up to 90% greater tensile strength than leading natural rubber latex gloves. Additionally, XCEED™ gloves are as much as 60% stronger than leading nitrile brands. For the user, increased tensile strength equates to stronger gloves with improved tear and puncture resistance.
Value packed at 250 gloves per box (2500 gloves per case) and very competitively priced, XCEED™ offers a unique combination of benefits for any disposable examination glove user (nitrile or latex) looking to increase glove quality and durability while maintaining or even reducing their cost of acquisition.
