HOW DOES IT WORK?

BREATHEX FOAM

INNOVATION MAKES SENSE WHEN IT ACTUALLY CONTRIBUTES TO SOMETHING USEFUL.

We discovered that the majority of workers use latex palm coated gloves for construction, logistics and

general handling - outdoor work environments where they are exposed to changeable weather conditions

all year round. In fact, companies were either purchasing 2 different types of gloves or workers were using

the wrong gloves for the 2 seasons.

SO WE SAID: DRY, WET, WARM, COLD WHY DO WE ALWAYS HAVE TO CHOOSE?

During dry and hot temperatures, wearing gloves causes hands to sweat and creates perspiration inside

the glove. In cold and wet seasons, users wear fully coated gloves to keep hands clean, dry and warm.

This means shifting gloves depending on climate and outdoor conditions. Users were wearing 2 different

types of glove for the same purpose, resulting in double purchases, the wrong glove for each season, or both.

Based on these findings, SHOWA designed the ultimate outdoor companion SHOWA 306 using BREATHEX FOAM TECHNOLOGY - a revolutionary dual latex coating technology that allows the glove to be both BREATHABLE and LIQUID RESISTANT. The combination of full foam latex doubled with latex coating on the

palm is the only alternative solution for workers to

be protected with one glove. SHOWA 306 provides

premium grip and dexterity with breathability in dry or

wet environments, whatever the outdoor conditions are.
