TOP Glove Corp Bhd stressed that there is no contamination in its product manufactured in Klang, Selangor.
Top Glove executive chairman Tan Sri Dr Lim Wee Chai said this is mainly because the factory’s temperature is between 30 and 40 degrees.
“Inside the oven, it can reach 110 degrees. The virus hardly survives in high temperatures. In terms of packing, there is no direct contact with the glove.
“Our workers are fully equipped with personal protective equipment (PPE), face masks, helmets and gloves while our production line is fully automated,” he told reporters at a virtual press conference today.
Considering the hot weather in Malaysia and the one-month duration to ship to Europe and other countries, Lim pointed out that there would be no contamination.
