Ironclad Performance Wear Introduces Revolutionary Mechanic Glove

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Ironclad Performance Wear Corporation (ICPW), the recognized leader in high-performance task-specific performance work gloves, has introduced the industry's most innovative new glove model designed specifically for auto mechanics and technicians.



"A major element in the design of Ironclad products is working directly with the end-user of a task-specific glove," said Fred Castro, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Ironclad.  "After climbing into the trenches and learning first-hand from mechanics as they do their job, we were able to design and build a unique glove which addresses their specific needs for increased hand safety and efficiency. We believe there is a large market for this glove, as the design meets the intense demands of mechanics where traditional work gloves often fall short." 

Key features of the glove include:

  • Single-layer palm for dexterity
  • Terry cloth sweat wipe built into the thumb
  • Snap-free snug compression cuff
  • Synthetic leather reinforcements in critical stress areas

The company will present the Ironclad Mechanic glove at three upcoming tradeshows:

  • National Safety Council Expo, Orlando, FL, October 22 - 24, 2012
  • SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association - automotive), Las Vegas, NV, October 30 - November 2, 2012
  • STAFDA Annual Convention & Trade Show (Specialty Tools & Fasteners Distributors Association), Orlando, FL, November 4 - 6, 2012

The Ironclad Mechanic glove will be available in retail stores and through industrial distributors by January 2013.
