Ergodyne announces OutDry Technologies partnership

Laminate membrane technology to waterproof ProFlex Hand Protection line.

St. Paul, Minn.—Ergodyne has announced its partnership with OutDry, provider of a laminate membrane technology, and the imminent integration of the technology into Ergodyne's ProFlex Hand Protection line.

Specifically, OutDry takes waterproofing to the next level using a patented lamination process that bonds a waterproof/breathable membrane directly to the external layer of the product—resulting, in this case, in a perfectly sealed, waterproof glove.

"We're thrilled to incorporate this innovative, cutting-edge technology into our ProFlex gloves," said Tom Votel, president and CEO of Ergodyne. "It's like high-tech, task-specific, custom galoshes for your hands. Water, beware."

"Ergodyne's decision to adopt OutDry in such a high-quality and broad line of protective gloves is an important endorsement for our technology. We are extremely excited to introduce our brand and technology to the U.S. PPE market with such a respected company," said Luca Morlacchi, co-founder and general manager of OutDry.

OutDry technology will be available in existing ProFlex Hand Protection models this winter (2011) with plans for additional expansion and new models in 2012.
