Within the Polyco Technology Centre is the Innovation Centre which has the capability of developing and producing prototype gloves using a variety of different technologies. In this way we are able to develop new and innovative products in-house quickly and efficiently. We have the ability to develop most knitted gloves using a wide variety of yarns which give class leading properties and allow us to offer our customers a tailor made service to help solve customers hand protection problems. With the added ability to produce small trial quantities the optimum glove can be developed, trialed and modified before committing to large scale production.
The same ability is duplicated for dipped gloves, as there is an automated small scale dipping machine which allows the production of prototype rubber gloves and also the ability to dip coat knitted gloves so giving an almost complete prototyping facility. The dipping unit allows Polyco to develop and optimise latex formulations to give the resulting gloves the best possible properties.
It is in the Innovation Centre where most of our award winning gloves have been developed including the BSIF Product Innovation Award for the Metallica ultra high cut resistant glove.
