The Wonder Grip 318 AQUA utilises the following Glove Technology.

  • Wonder Grip Technology™

  • TPDT™ Technology

 

  Wonder Grip Technology™

Wonder Grip Technology™ consists of creating specific asperities on the coated surface of the glove, hence reproducing the sucking effect of a force cup.

This specifically designed augmented grip technology offers the user considerably increased grip equally in damp, dry or oily conditions.

In other words, Wonder Grip Technology™ reduces the force required to move objects and considerably increases grip control of all objects, in both dry or slippery environments.

Results of tests conducted by BOKEN Japan, an independent materials test and control agency, demonstrated an increase in the friction coefficient, i.e. prehension force or grip, of 58%* for Wonder Grip Technology™ latex coatings, and of 36% for Wonder Grip Technology™ nitrile coatings.

 

 

  TPDT™ Technology

All Wonder Grip Gloves are produced via TPDT™ Technology. Placed inside a mould that reproduces the natural shape of a hand at rest during soaking, Wonder Grip gloves are also washed and dried via a method specifically developed by in-house engineers.

This method offers users freedom of movement and the increased sensitivity that has earned Wonder Grip its international reputation.
