Iselin, N.J.-based Ansell introduces its first HyFlex glove to offer oil repellency, secure grip and cut resistance. The HyFlex 11-927 glove features Ansell’s Ripel liquid-repellence technology and Ansell GRIP technology, combined with a cut-resistant liner and a higher dip lining.
Many industrial workers performing primary assembly, metal working and stamping operations risk contacting liquids—including lubricants and oils—that can cause irritation and contamination. They often double-up on gloves, resulting in a reduction of grip or flexibility, or choose gloves that offer protection but absorb liquids and are prematurely discarded.
Ansell’s Ripel technology creates a liquid-impermeable layer in knit gloves, and its GRIP is a coating that reduces the force required to grip oily or wet tools or materials, reducing hand and arm fatigue and improving dexterity, safety and productivity.
