TouchTecTM is a revolution in gloves & textiles
Our patent-pending nanotechnology is uniquely designed and engineered into the textiles. Through the use of special patented equipment, treatments and processes, gloves which are TouchTec enabled can be designed to work throughout the entire glove, not limiting the wearer to what part of their hand or which finger they want to use to navigate a touch screen. Many types of textiles can TouchTec enabled, including woven and knit fabrics and leather. The current glove styles engineered with TouchTec work flawlessly with all types of touch screens. The gloves fit like a glove should, are warm, soft, waterproof, soil and stain resistant, windproof, anti-microbial.
How TouchScreens Work
Most older style touch screens use resistive technology and work by pressing into the screen, similar to pressing a key on a keyboard. Many of the new touch screens for mobile devices, kiosks, ATM machines, etc. are now using a new type of screen. This new touch screen technology is far superior in many ways, as it is more durable, lasts longer and offers the ability to recognize multiple touches. Anyone who has ever used an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch immediately recognized how fantastic these new "gesturing" features are, allowing the user to quickly scroll, expand, contract, and more. The only downside to this technology is it needs to come in contact with skin to work. These screens, contrary to popular belief, do not detect heat. They actually detect the touch of the skin and sync with it at that point. To create a glove that works with all types of touch screens required creation of new type of textile technology that mimics the "human touch." That's what TouchTecTM is all about!
TouchTecTM Leather is real leather. It has been uniquely engineered from the ground up to be a touch screen enabled textile. It is soft, warm and durable, like one would expect from fine leather, but has the functionality of TouchTec built in. By design, the leather is also water and windproof, soil resistant and anti-microbial. It is available in a variety of hide types, Lamb Skin and Goat, to name a few and is made from the highest quality selections and grades of leather available on the market. Perfect for anything from fashion to outdoor activity gloves and everything in between.
TouchTecTM Microfiber Fleece is specifically engineered from the ground up to be a touch screen enabled textile and designed to retain energy and resists heat loss. It provides maximum insulation from cold, wind and water with minimal weight and bulk, and is ideal for any outdoor activities that require insulation and protection. TouchTec Microfiber Fleece is also soil resistant and anti-microbial, so you won't have to worry about dirt and germs. So, when temperatures drop, you won't have to take off your gloves to work your iPhone, iPod or any other touch screen device you encounter.
