uvex occupational safety equipment for paint, plastics and clean room applications

In order to meet the high requirements of customers, products must meet the highest quality standards. Paint compatibility, the guaranteed absence of lint and product protection all play an important role in this.

uvex has made “protecting people” its own mission, as well as focussing on production processes in parallel. Substances that affect paint coatings are simply not an option in your production facility and for your employees' protective equipment, which is why uvex has already taken this into account in its manufacturing process.

Paint compatibility

To ensure a perfect finish in your production, uvex uses materials and substances in the production of personal protective equipment that make it safe to use in the painting process. As a provider of head-to-toe PPE, we can produce tailored equipment that fulfils your highest quality requirements for vehicles and employees. Our material experts work closely with the laboratories of major automotive manufacturers to monitor the test procedure (for substances that impair paint coatings) and prevent distorted finishes.

No lint

Not only do unwanted substances jeopardise a perfect paint finish on your vehicles, but so can fibres and lint that can come loose from employees’ clothing. The same applies to lots of clean rooms, in which PPE must protect people and the respective product. uvex uses shirts made from Tencel especially for this purpose; Tencel is a fibre taken from the pulp of natural eucalyptus wood from sustainably managed forests and impresses with its high moisture-absorbing capability and its lint-free properties.

Chemical Expert System

With the Chemicals database from uvex you get expert support in choosing the right safety gloves and protective equipment for handling the hazardous substances that you work with quickly and easily. In addition to standard permeation lists, you can create individual permeation lists yourself. Alongside proudly producing a variety of gloves in Germany, our production site in Lüneburg has its own laboratory that can analyse the hazardous substances that you work with and recommend gloves to meet your needs.

Lens materials

CR39

  • Also known as: plastic
  • Not suitable for safety spectacles unless modified, as the tensile strength is otherwise too low. The middle of the lens must be thicker in order to meet the requirements for tensile strength.
  • Organic, lightweight material
  • Very good optical image reproduction properties even on high prescriptions
  • Suitable for working with chemicals and paint
  • Good scratch resistance thanks to hard coating (optional)
  • Mechanical strength, class “S” (ball drop test)

Trivex™

  • Organic material with high tensile strength
  • Lightweight, also suitable for high prescriptions
  • Very good optical image reproduction properties even on high prescriptions
  • Very high resistance to cleaning solutions, oils, cosmetics
  • Good scratch resistance
  • Best all-round lens material
  • Mechanical strength, class “F” (45 m/sec)
Finishes

Anti-reflective coating

 

Anti-reflective coating is applied to the inside and outside of lenses using vapour deposition. It significantly reduces reflections on the surfaces. It offers a cosmetic advantage and increases light transmission.

Three types of coating are available:

  • Normal anti-reflective coating
  • Multi anti-reflective coating
  • Super anti-reflective coating
UV blue protect

UV blue protect

 

A special absorber has been added to the lens material that completely filters out UV rays and reduces the blue light content.

  • The lenses absorb UV radiation up to 400 nm at 100%, filter short-wave blue light until 410 nm almost completely and reduce the range from 410 nm to 420 nm around 86%.
  • uvex UV blue protect lenses enhance contrast and effectively prevent signs of fatigue and age-related macular degeneration (AMD)
  • UV blue protect is optionally available for polycarbonate (PC) lenses and HI 1.67
  • the mechanical strength of the lenses is guaranteed — clear lenses with UV blue protect are marked 2C-1.2 according to EN 170
