Wilkuro Safety Toes, a provider of temporary safety toe protection, has upgraded its product line to use an injection molded Polyvinyl Chloride boot as an integral part of its safety overshoe to improve product life and expand its uses.

PVC is capable of coming into contact with a variety of liquids without undergoing any significant changes in composition or properties. It remains strong and durable, even under changing temperatures and conditions and this resilience will allow the Wilkuro Safety Toe to consistently function for extended periods of time.

The design and look of Wilkuro Safety Toes steel toe overshoe Wilkuro steel toe overshoe , including the Wilkuro trademarks have not changed. Only the material from which the safety shoe is constructed has changed. Recently, a number of competing products have entered the market. They are different in appearance and are not quality tested Wilkuro Safety Toes. For more than twenty years, Wilkuro has continuously and comprehensively tested its products to meet and exceed required international safety standards. If it does not say Wilkuro Safety Toes it is not a Wilkuro product.

"The original Wilkuro design with the visible, yet fully integrated, color-coded toe cap has not changed," says John Wilson, Sales Manager. "The company has taken a lot of care in the decision to upgrade the overshoe material to PVC and was careful not to alter its trademark design in any way."

Buyers will now receive stronger, more durable, slip-resistant Wilkuro Safety Toe when purchasing the product or using the improved safety overshoe when entering manufacturing facilities. The switch to PVC overshoes replaces the 100 per cent vulcanized rubber design.

According to Operations Manager, George Kuropas, "PVC is capable of coming into contact with a variety of liquids without undergoing any significant changes in composition or properties. It remains strong and durable, even under changing temperatures and conditions and this resilience will allow the Wilkuro Safety Toe to consistently function for extended periods of time."

He added, "Out of 135 standard chemicals tested, the Wilkuro PVC overshoe consistently outperformed comparable rubber products. PVC achieved excellent or good scores for chemical resistance in 92 instances. Rubber only achieved these results in 48 instances. This represents a 192 per cent improvement over rubber."

The Wilkuro PVC safety overshoe has been market and quality tested and has demonstrated to be a stronger, more durable and slip-resistant steel toe safety overshoe than comparable rubber products.
