Ironclad introduced its silicone-fused Diamondclad® palm to the work world with the very first Box Hander® glove. Our engineering team invented the ‘cold fusion’ process utilized to make this glove – 100% pure silicone is fused to the synthetic leather palm in a patented pattern, delivering 3 times the grip and 3 times the durability of synthetic leather alone.
We originally created this technology to enhance grip and relieve muscle strain for anyone working in a warehouse - the grip on cardboard is simply amazing. While wearing Box Handler gloves, you’ll in fact use less muscle force to lift heavier loads. Despite being developed for the shipping and logistics industry, the patented Diamondclad palm provides superior grip on both dry and wet surfaces, and on materials beyond cardboard such as sheet metal, drywall, tool handles, rubber grips, steering wheels, automotive glass, plastics, and on and on. Due to its amazing versatility, this palm technology is now used in a wide range of workplaces, delivering a significant increase in safety, speed and efficiency across multiple industries.
