Protection for the skin and the planet - Semperguard® green at the A+A 2017 in Düsseldorf


Semperguard, the industrial glove brand of Sempermed, presents its newest product innovation at this years A+A, the largest international specialist trade fair for „Safety, Security and Health at Work“ being held until October 20th, 2017. Under the slogan ‘green means go’, Sempermed, one of the worldwide leading manufacturers of medical and industrial gloves, presents its newest green addition to the glove portfolio: the Semperguard® green. In addition to the usual high protection, this glove is intended to provide users and patients with an environmentally friendly alternative to conventional examination gloves.

Good for the skin – Good for the planet.

The new Semperguard® green is a mint green nitrile glove that combines reliable skin protection with model environmental protection. Due to the new production process, the Semperguard® green is skin-friendlier than conventional gloves and has a lower allergy potential. The redesigned production process also saves on energy and CO2 emissions. “Coupled with the absence of rubber accelerators and chlorine, this makes Semperguard® green a benchmark in its class when it comes to resource-conserving production and the protection of people and the planet,” comments Clemens Eichler, Sales Director Sempermed.

The Semperguard® green is double certified and is suitable for use as personal protective equipment as well as a medical device product. Textured fingertips provide a secure grip and optimal touch and feel. The synthetic inner coating facilitates easy glove donning. As this glove is free from natural rubber latex proteins and rubber accelerators, it is suitable for people suffering from Type-I or Type-IV allergies or for those who would like to prevent it.

Further information and glove samples are available at the A+A Düsseldorf in Hall 3 E25.
