Achieve comfort without compromise with new Kimtech™ Opal™ Nitrile Gloves


For improved comfort for extended use and high tactile sensitivity without compromising worker safety, Kimberly-Clark Professional™ has introduced Kimtech™ Opal™ Nitrile Gloves.

The powder-free gloves are manufactured without vulcanisation accelerators(1)  or added sulphur and do not contain natural rubber latex – reducing the risk of Type I and Type IV glove-associated skin reactions as well as protecting the application. The gloves also feature a patented technology to protect the skin, known as Low Derma Technology*.

Ideal for research and production facilities, life sciences and non-sterile drug manufacturing applications, these innovative gloves:

– Feature a thin nitrile polymer and tip thickness of just 0.07 mm to deliver excellent tensile strength while being able to withstand rigorous process use
– Are soft, comfortable and easy to don, making them suitable for extended use
– Have beaded cuffs and textured fingertips to enable excellent handling of wet and dry materials

Precision-manufactured to reduce contamination risk and ensure high levels of regulatory compliance, the ambidextrous gloves have been extensively tested under stringent conditions. Certifications include:

– PPE Cat III, according to EU Regulation 2016/425
– EN ISO 374-1 Type B (KPT), against chemical splashes
– EN ISO 374-5, against microorganism and virus penetration

Sustainability benefits

The thin nitrile construction and efficient packaging of the Kimtech™ Opal™ Nitrile Gloves can reduce waste by up to 50%. (2) The gloves also can be recycled through The RightCycle™ Programme.(3) This groundbreaking service enables research and manufacturing facilities, universities, and a variety of businesses to collect previously hard-to-recycle items, such as Kimtech™ nitrile gloves and single-use apparel items, and convert them into new consumer goods.

(1) No sulphur added and formulated without the following vulcanising chemicals and accelerators: Thiurams, Thiazoles, Guanidines and Carbamates.
(2) Compared to a standard number of gloves per dispenser box of 100.
(3) Available in the U.K., Ireland, France, Spain, Germany, Austria and Belgium
