Technology Centre

Polyco operate one of the most technically advanced facilities in the UK glove industry and the Technology Centre is uniquely positioned to be able to provide a breadth of experience and advice to the hand protection industry.
It consists of four testing laboratories, prototyping facilities and technical and regulatory support.

The Testing Laboratories are equipped with a range of equipment to enable testing to over 40 European Standards which establish product conformity with Food Safety, Medical Device and Personal Protective Equipment directives. The majority of the tests are accredited to UKAS standards and have been so since 2000 and this allows us to answer customer enquiries and provide information accurately and rapidly. Testing to many of the standards relating to gloves is conducted as is testing of films and cloths. The laboratory has also developed many in-house tests which help ensure Polyco products are amongst the best in the marketplace.

In addition to the comprehensive range of tests, customers benefit from the team of glove industry experts who between them hold positions within a number of industry associations including the CEN European standards committees for both medical and industrial gloves, the BSIF and expert working groups within the EU.

This clear capability in the industry adds great value to our customers, offering a complementary consultancy service to our testing.
