Needlestick Resistant
SuperFabric® Inside

HexArmor’s needle resistant products work by layering SuperFabric® brand material while maintaining dexterity and breathability. The unique SuperFabric® technology blocks and deflects needle hazards or, traps and arrests them in the small gaps found between the SuperFabric® guard plates.

The Real Cost of
Needlestick Injuries

The prevalence of needlestick punctures in the recycling, waste, and law enforcement industries (particularly with the opioid epidemic) is steadily increasing. Without proper protection, workers are susceptible to life-changing needlestick injuries that can lead to bloodborne pathogens, including hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV.

Next Level Needle
Defense Results

In 2016, the North American ANSI/ISEA 105 standard was updated to include the ASTM F2878-10 needlestick test, recognizing that this is a common potential exposure risk for the medical, sanitation, recycling, and now law enforcement industries. HexArmor’s needle resistant PPE test results are impressive.

Needle + Cut Resistance —
Premier Safety for All Hazards

SuperFabric® offers industry defining needlestick protection. And, unlike most other needle resistant technology, you don’t see a dip in other protective properties when you choose HexArmor PointGuard® products. Our needlestick resistant products also boast some of the highest cut resistance in the industry.

Case Study: Recycling
Needlestick Solution

Each year Waste Management recycling workers are exposed to approximately two-to-three billion improperly disposed needles, creating an unacceptable health risk for employees and the company. HexArmor® designers worked directly with WM’s safety team to create a series of protective gloves that could resist needle sticks and punctures, as well as cuts from broken glass shards, steel, wire, and wood splinters.
