SW Products Catered Towards the Summer Season

Summer is in full swing as we are now in the first week of June. With the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) reporting that we should expect extremely high temperatures from the Pacific Northwest to Texas and New England, with above average temperatures everywhere else except North Dakota and slivers of surrounding states. And for Europe, it can be expected to have warmer-than-normal weather over a large part of the continent this summer. Meanwhile many parts of Asia have been hit by recent April heatwaves. As Monsoon season approaches in Asia, the weather should drop but remain around 80-90 degrees Fahrenheit. Overall, the global temperature is still rising every summer. Therefore, it’s increasingly important to have the proper gear for the changing climate. These solutions must also be sustainable for the environment.

SW is proud to offer such solutions for our customers. Customers can look towards our brand’s innovative and sustainable technology. For the summer and hot season, we have our DriTek, DryCore, and EnerGel technologies.

  • DriTek is SW’s patented technology for sweat management. It rapidly absorbs sweat to easily manage sweat for healthier hands, making for easy donning and doffing. Wetness in single use gloves is not only uncomfortable but it limits a user’s mobility, dexterity, and tactility. Not to mention it may further lead to other safety hazards, such as when workers forgo gloves due to irritability from hand sweat accumulation. It’s perfect for those who work long hours requiring manual labor and especially in the hot summer heat.
  • Dry Core is our lint-free alternative to DriTek. They both contain a moisture-wicking flock-lined system. The inner lining serves to maintain an insulated, dry environment for drier, cooler, more comfortable hands.
  • EnerGel is SW’s patented aloe vera lining coating. Our aloe vera lined gloves are significantly different from other brands and designed to produce the most effective moisturization for our customers’ skin. Polysaccharides (carbohydrate molecules) are the main active component of aloe vera gel for skin hydration but are often not small enough to fully pass through the skin’s outer layer. EnerGel technology converts the high molecular weight of Aloe Vera polysaccharides into specific lower weights aimed for skin penetration and hydration. Our technology has two times more skin moisturizing benefits than standard Aloe technology. SW’s patented EnerGel process allows polysaccharides to be absorbed, instead of just settling on the skin surface. This prevents the moisturizing elements (polysaccharides) from being washed away compared to regular lotion moisturizers or other humectant aloe vera gels. Delivered deep into the skin, EnerGel helps those predisposed to dry skin, and provides a comforting cooling effect. Our EnerGel technology benefits those who work long hours in workplace environments that necessitate wearing gloves. It’s perfect for the hotter weather as well, giving your hand some relief from any irritability due to the heat.

SW takes great pride in crafting products that can provide maximum comfort and utility to our customers. The comfort and hand health of our customers is our utmost priority so we continue to create innovative products suited for their needs. Another feature is our EcoTek technology, which is our patented, environmentally sustainable nitrile glove formula.



EcoTek is free of toxic chemicals and manufactured sustainably. EcoTek is rigorously tested per the ASTM D5526 standard. EcoTek is useful for all glove users and industries as it is incineration friendly. Our formula has been proven to produce 7% less CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) emissions, 55% less NO2 (Nitrogen dioxide) emissions, 81% less SO2 (Sulfur Dioxide) emissions, 56% less TVOC (Total Volatile Organic Carbon) emissions, and 40% less CO (Carbon Monoxide) emissions during incineration compared to regular nitrile gloves. Our customers can rest assured that they are escaping the summer heat and contributing to preventing global temperatures from rising further.
