Tingley offers the broadest selection of injection molded over-the-shoe footwear in the industry.
Our line offers options of materials and styles to meet a wide range of protection and application requirements. We offer injection molded overboots in Natural Rubber and PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride). We complement this offering with both steel toe safety and slip resistant ice traction overboot products.
Our overboot products allow users to wear their normal work boots, while having protection against the environment. Overboots are the perfect choice when the protective requirements are intermittent or weather driven.
Material Selection: Before choosing a material where contact with a given chemical may occur, the users should perform their own tests. If highly toxic chemicals are present, special care must be taken into consideration when choosing the correct protective product. This care should include daily inspections to ensure that normal wear and tear have not reduced the integrity of the product. Depending on the toxicity level of the chemical, products should be disposed of if intimate contact with the chemical has occurred.
|PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride): Is a synthetic thermoplastic polymer that provides good protection against animal fats, many acids, alcohols, alkalies, bases, oils, and petroleum hydrocarbons. PVC is not recommended for use in ketones, aldehydes, and many solvents. Our Frigiflex® formula, used in our Workbrutes overboots line, has good stretch and low temperature properties to stay supple in cold weather.||Natural Rubber Overboots: Has outstanding stretch for easier on and off, and excellent low temperature properties allow the material to stay supple in cold temperatures. It has superior slip, puncture, and cut resistance as compared to PVC. Rubber resists bases, acids, alcohols, and diluted water solutions of most chemicals that are water-soluble. It is a hydrocarbon and does not withstand constant contact with petroleum and oil based solvents.|
