ANSELL Occupational Healthcare division has announced the release of Ansell's latest cut-resistant glove - PowerFlex +.
PowerFlex + provides cut, abrasion and puncture resistance, with wet and dry grip. The ergonomically designed seamless liner is stretchy and comfortable and allows the hand to 'breathe' - keeping hands cooler for longer.
Additionally, the Dupont Kevlar fibre provides excellent cut resistance to sharp-edged materials. Combining this with the textured natural rubber latex coating, PowerFlex + offers a firm grip in both wet and dry applications, reducing the likelihood of slippage.
Ansell has looked at the needs of many applications and noted that the area where the most wear occurs is around the thumb and index finger. This high risk area is also susceptible to cuts.
PowerFlex + has a fully coated thumb that not only protects the thumb from moisture, but also provides additional protection for this area.
The new PowerFlex + glove will be on display at Safety In Action 2003.
