x-grip technology

The specially formulated polyurethane foam developed in-house for uvex earplugs creates a hygienic sealed surface and improves the pressure on the ear canal to ensure a comfortable wearing experience. Silicone free, the x-shaped grip technology means there is less material at the entrance of the ear canal reducing contact pressure while being fully closed. X-grip technology also helps with easy plug removal.

The foam pads are made of two components, so the earplugs do not move when worn. The oval form mimics the entrance to the ear canal, guaranteeing extremely high wearer comfort. uvex banded ear protectors in lightweight construction have a total weight of just 8 grams.
