Ansell Industrial Healthcare has expanded its market-leading cut protection portfolio with the addition of a new suite of HyFlex gloves engineered with the next-generation INTERCEPT Technology yarns.

INTERCEPT Technology cut resistance solutions are part of a portfolio of advanced technologies developed by Ansell, featuring an innovative new knitting technology, which blends engineered, synthetic and natural fibres into high performance yarns. The newly engineered fibres combine cut protection with all day comfort for increased worker compliance.

Ansell’s new range of HyFlex INTERCEPT gloves includes six cut-resistant medium weight and light weight glove styles, which provide the exceptional comfort and dexterity required by the world’s most demanding industrial workplaces. HyFlex INTERCEPT cut protection gloves address one of the most fundamental areas of hand protection for global safety managers and industrial workers - keeping hands safe from cut risks.

According to Scott Corriveau, president and general manager of Ansell’s Industrial Global Business Unit, the launch of Ansell’s INTERCEPT technology marks the industry’s first comprehensive product development platform for cut protection innovation. The new technology brings game-changing enhancements to cut protection solutions in the marketplace.

Darryl Nazareth, senior vice president of research and development for the Ansell Industrial Global Business Unit emphasises Ansell’s commitment to understanding and meeting the critical needs of end-users, which revolve around performance, protection and comfort. The new portfolio of protection solutions based on INTERCEPT technology meets the safety needs of today’s global industrial workers. He adds that the INTERCEPT platform will help Ansell enhance future generations of cut protection products and technologies that respond to changing workplace safety needs.

Ansell INTERCEPT technology enhances hand protection and productivity in work environments where the use of sharp tools and materials can lead to cut risks. These environments include the automotive, metal fabrication and machinery equipment industries.

Offered in EN cut level 3, 4 and 5 cut protection styles, the six new medium weight and light weight glove styles complement an already comprehensive portfolio of Ansell cut protection options. Three new styles are nitrile based, and eight times more breathable than similar lightweight gloves and two and a half times more breathable than other cut protection gloves, according to tests conducted in Ansell R&D labs. Silicone-free coating, dirt masking colours, a more tailored comfortable fit, and improved grip and abrasion resistance are some of the other enhanced features of the new HyFlex cut protection gloves.

The continued evolution of the HyFlex product line reflects ongoing global research among safety officers, operations managers, purchasing agents and workers through the Ansell Worker Experience Innovation program.

The new HyFlex cut protection gloves are currently available in select markets around the world.
