SW Launches Bantam Brand to Address Glove Shortage

SW announced the introduction of the new Bantam™ brand of Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) gloves. The Bantam brand was developed to provide a quality single-use hand protection option in order to reserve nitrile and latex gloves, that are in short supply, for frontline mission-critical workers.

The new Bantam gloves could be an alternative to nitrile and latex gloves at an economical price, making them ideal for everyday use in low risk industries such as foodservice, hospitality, retail, and sanitation. Manufacturing TPE gloves is reportedly efficient to help fill the demand, and the process is clean – addressing SW environmental and hand health concerns. Bantam gloves are also recyclable.

“It is our responsibility, as a global hand protection leader, to proactively support our customers and end users who rely on our products. This involves keeping them informed about the shortages as well as looking for new solutions that provide quality alternatives during this time,” said Belle Chou, CEO, SW.

“TPE is the ultimate, economical substitute. Combining ease-of-use, general chemical resistance, and clean manufacturing, these gloves hit above their weight and will fill the much-needed demand in the single-use glove market,” said Bob Gaither, chief commercial officer, SW.
