Sempermed Offers Polymed®, a Fusion of Latex and Synthetic Glove Technology

Clearwater FL, July 2007: Building on its reputation for Quality and Consistency First.(TM), Sempermed, one of the world's leading suppliers of latex examination gloves, is pleased to offer its exciting Polymed® exam glove.

Polymed differs from other copolymer exam gloves because of its unique "fusion" bonding of latex and synthetic polymers. This creates a multi-layer glove that combines the elasticity of latex and the strength of copolymers, which protects against cracking and/or peeling in normal usage.

Polymed® contains 50 micrograms or less of total water extractable proteins per gram, which significantly reduces the potential for allergic reactions. This glove also offers powder-free protection that eliminates the aerosolization of glove powder as well as the powder transfer of latex proteins.

The unique multi-layer coating of Polymed provides added comfort against the skin and ease of donning for both wet and dry hands. And the micro-rough surface on the fingers and palm offers excellent sensing and a safe grip. Additionally, the beaded cuff increases the strength and protection of this premium exam glove.

The Polymed exam glove offers optimum safety, having a particularly low 1.5 AQL value. Its neutral pH balance also provides additional skin-friendliness.

Sempermed produces gloves at its own facilities in Europe and Asia, and has over 175 years of manufacturing heritage. For more information on Sempermed or its products, contact Sempermed USA, Inc., 13900 49th Street North, Clearwater, FL 33762; 800-366-9545; website: www.sempermedusa.com.
