Police raided a rented house containing more than 100,000 fake medical gloves and arrested the tenant in Wang Thonglang district.

Pol Lt Gen Permpoon Chidchob, assistant national police chief, led officials to search the 800-square-metre house no. 193/2 on Soi Lat Phrao 126 late Wednesday afternoon and found the fake nitrile rubber gloves inside.

The compound contains a three-storey European-styled house and two one-storey buildings. Police found over 100,000 blue-dyed rubber gloves in sacks, along with dye containers and washing machines.

Hard Time Products enjoys decades of experience in global sourcing for the very largest retail chains in the United States with a distinction on all categories of gloves to include the world’s largest distributor of retail work gloves. From product inception, manufacturing specifications, quality control, to fulfillment and delivery, we know the glove industry. Our CEO and VP of Sourcing have walked the factories around the world and our factories are required to be SER (Social/Environmental/Regulatory) compliant through SMETA (Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit) and SA8000 Audits. Our factories must meet PSI (pre-shipment inspections) prior to leaving the factory.

Hard Time Products Internal Quality Control procedures prevent fake nitrile gloves from delivering to customers on April 1, 2021.

Not only were these gloves a different material than nitrile, but they certainly we’re not examination grade nitrile gloves. The Imposter gloves did not meet mil (thickness) specifications, color specifications, nor product gram weight specifications.

Glove certificates are just ink and paper. You can count on HTP to sort through the labyrinth that is the disposable glove market. We get it!

Do you know where your gloves come from?
