June 24, 2019 – Kimberly-Clark Professional has introduced KleenGuard Kraken Grip nitrile gloves that can be used with either a wet or dry grip. 

Inspired by the kraken, a legendary sea creature with a powerful grasp, these fully textured gloves are recyclable through a recycling program.

Using the gloves, workers can handle oil, grease and solvents. Other benefits include a tread-like pattern on fingers and palms to help channel substances away from areas where grip is most critical, and powder-free moisture control and air circulation pockets for interior comfort.

A black exterior that hides dirt and grime, to provide a professional appearance, and beaded cuffs make donning easier and prevent roll-down.

In addition, the six-mil gloves are ZMBT free (Prop 65 compliant in California) and ambidextrous. They are ideal for fabrication and machine work, small and large parts handling, chemical splash protection and other uses.

KleenGuard Kraken Grip nitrile gloves can be diverted from landfills through the RightCycle Program, the first large-scale recycling program for non-hazardous lab, cleanroom and industrial waste. The RightCycle Program turns used apparel, gloves and protective eyewear into new consumer goods.
