What is the Q2X™ Silicone Material?

What is the Q2X™ Silicone Material?

You’re tough as nails.

Your ring should be, too.

QALO has always taken pride in the fact that our rings were built to be tough yet smart. They will stand up to whatever you throw at them until they need to sacrifice themselves to save your fingers. That’s when they’ll break away. But for some hands, tough isn’t tough enough. And that’s why we created Q2X ™.

Our Q2X ™ material is exclusive to QALO and was designed for people who work with their hands daily. Specifically, the material is made for people who have their hands in and out of solvents all day long. Many silicone rings will react with the solvents, eventually becoming almost soggy. We wanted to create a ring that was tougher than gasoline.

The toughest silicone ring on the market, Q2X ™ stands up to:

- Extreme temperatures from -75 degrees Fahrenheit to 575 degrees Fahrenheit.

- Solvents like gasoline, oil, mineral spirits/petroleum ethanol, butoxyethanol, power steering fluid, mineral oil, octane, ethanol, brake fluid, hydrochloric acid, ethoxyethanol, and vegetable oil. 

- We mentioned the temperature above. But we forgot to mention that these rings are non-conductive. They won’t transfer those extreme temperatures to your finger. They also won’t transfer electrical charges from wires.

- Extreme force. Most silicone rings break away around 11-15 pounds. Q2X ™ stands up to 17-22 pounds.

Q2X ™ is ten TIMES more resistant to solvent absorption than any other silicone ring on the market. How do we know that? Hours upon hours of testing, development, and more... and the result is a ring that will take anything that you throw at it, and still come out beautiful and strong. Just like you.
