The Oeko-Tex Standard 100

Tested and certified uvex safety gloves


Oeko-Tex Standard 100 is a testing and certification system that is the same world-wide. The more intensively skin comes into contact with a product, the
stricter the product requirements have to be, which is why gloves are
subject to the second highest level, Class II. They are not only tested in
accordance with legal standards, but also with the aid of the latest research
findings. For this reason, Oeko-Tex not only defines stringent threshold
values for heavy metals such as chrome, nickel and mercury, but also
assesses the use of carcinogenic and allergenic dyes and solvents such as
formaldehyde. Every year, testing methods and hazardous substances lists
are updated to incorporate the latest scientific findings.


Proven levels of safety, for you and your employees. Everything that comes into contact with skin has to satisfy the most exacting requirements and this is why we decided to have all knitted gloves in our uvex profi, contact, rubipor, phynomic, C3, C5, protector, rubiflex, rubiflex s, profatrol and profagrip ranges, certified according to the stringent testing criteria of Product Class II of the Oeko-Tex Standard 100.
