As the country gradually returns to a sense of normality, COVID-19 remains a threat with European countries reporting a rise in cases and announcing fresh lockdowns. Therefore, we must continue to counter the spread. That’s why we’ve added the new Uvex Phynomic Silv-Air gloves to our constantly growing range of PPE products.

The reusable gloves use a sustainable and distinctive antimicrobial technology called HeiQ Viroblock. It’s really a combination of two HeiQ technologies. The first is HeiQ’s patented silver technology that is already world-renowned for its antibacterial protection, deactivating up to 99.9% of bacteria after five minutes (below). The other is HeiQ’s patent-pending vesicle technology that effectively acts as a booster that mechanically destroys viruses.

Antiviral Effect of the Uvex Phynomic Silv-Air Protective Gloves

The solution is highly effective against COVID-19 coronavirus and works by emitting positively charged silver ions that attracts negatively charged microbes then attacks them. Although the virus is enveloped by a protective membrane, the vesicle technology targets it, giving the silver ions the green light to attack, breaking the chains of transmission.

Why Not Just Wear Disposable Gloves?
