industrial incident protection

Our mission is to protect people who serve in a wide range of functions – mining ore, advancing science, serving in the military, acting as first responders, etc. – and in doing so are exposed to acids. These workers build our economies and defend our communities, but the PPE they wear is woefully lacking, to the point where exposure, burns, or worse are simply considered “part of the job.” As our company name suggests, we believe they deserve better.

Industrial safety wear



When I was a freshman in college, I was working in a chemistry lab. We were tasked to conduct an experiment with sulfuric acid. I was told to be very careful and was given gloves and a lab coat. I was cautious, but even without spilling, I felt my hands burn. I ran to my TA and asked what had happened. Their answer was that, as an engineer, this is a danger I would face my whole career and that there was no real solution to the dangers of acids. I decided that this was unacceptable and decided to start a company to create the first acid-neutralizing protective equipment that pre-emptively protects workers.
