Ansell Industrial Healthcare introduces a new range of multipurpose gloves featuring liquid repellence technology to offer hand protection and grip in a wide range of industries.
The new Ansell HyFlex 11-926 glove combines greater comfort and efficiency with oil repellence to provide hand protection while helping the user to retain grip on small, oil coated parts and assembly components. These properties help users perform various manual tasks across a range of industries.
The comfortable, light duty oil repellent multipurpose glove employs Ansell’s Ripel liquid repellence technology and Grip technology to protect the worker’s hands against knuckle abrasion and oil exposure.
The Ansell HyFlex 11-926 glove features a durable three-quarter dip coating to ensure full protection to the back of the fingers, and is designed to provide all-day comfort, thanks to a soft liner made from fine gauge nylon fibre.
Ansell’s David Nicholls explains that the unique blend of protection, performance and flexibility features incorporated in the HyFlex 11-926 glove is an excellent improvement on the previous generation palm dip style oil repellent general-purpose gloves built on cut-and-sew cotton liners.
The new glove is recommended for workers handling oil coated parts in the automotive, electrical machinery, metal fabrication, power tools and transportation equipment markets. The lightweight multipurpose glove is ideal for operations such as cutting, sorting, inspection, uploading and downloading parts of the line; inspection of machine parts and components of metal working; and assembly of components and machinery.
Ansell works with Australia’s leading not-for-profit safety organisation, the National Safety Council of Australia as its training partner to ensure hand safety issues such as handling of oil coated parts are communicated throughout corporate and government organisations.
