Ansell launches new extreme cut-resistant gloves

Feb '09
Ansell Healthcare, a global leader in protective gloves for all industrial sectors, including building & construction, automotive, metal works, chemical, pharmaceuticals and food-service industries, will be showcasing its large portfolio of safety and hand protection solutions at World of Industry in Istanbul from 5 to 8 February 2009 (Machinery '09 - Stand: Hall 6 D140). Two innovations will be introduced for France: the PowerFlex 80-658 extreme cut-resistant glove and the HyFlex 11-435, the first cut resistant level 5 glove made with water-based polyurethane (PU).

In today's industrial sectors, productivity and cost-effectiveness are of primordial importance. To reach high performance targets, workers must be able to work fast and comfortably. In addition, workplace safety is a key requirement: staff must protect their hands against a broad spectrum of possible hazards: high temperatures, sharp materials, puncture risks, contact with oils and other chemical hazards... As the undisputed world leader in hand protection, Ansell offers a wide range of solutions for the industry, as well as unequalled expertise and a high value-services package.

Sharing the industry's concerns, Ansell is participating in WIN '09 considering the trade fair as an unmatched platform to promote a higher awareness for occupational safety and to demonstrate the company's recognized expertise in hand and arm protection.

On display at the Ansell booth will be the company's most recent innovations designed to address specific occupational safety hazards. Focus will be put on the introduction on the Turkish market of the PowerFlex 80-658 extreme cut-resistant glove and the HyFlex 11-435, the first cut resistant level 5 glove made with water-based polyurethane (PU).

Intended for high cut-risk work handling glass, metal, scrap waste and recycling, Ansell's PowerFlex 80-658 is the first three quarter dipped glove with a cut resistance level of 5 to offer the extra forearm protection of an extended knitwrist. The addition of cotton isolates the skin from direct contact with the cut resistant yarns, resulting in a glove that is softer and more comfortable to wear than many cut resistant gloves. The knitted liner retains its properties through washing and is highly resistant to abrasion (level X). The PowerFlex 80-658's triple-layer yarn construction is composed of steel, fibreglass and Kevlar.

The HyFlex 11-435 is a knitted, seamless, 13-gauge supported and dipped glove offering extreme resistance to cuts, abrasions and burrs (EN388 performance levels: 4-5-4-2). This new glove is intended for handling, maintenance, preassembling and cutting of dry or slightly oily parts, glass, sharp objects and components, sheet metal and ceramics. Composed of nylon, fiberglass and Dyneema, the liner offers excellent breathability and a "cool" feeling. The new HyFlex 11-435 is the first cut resistant level 5 knitted dipped glove on the market to be coated with water-based PU. Using water instead of dimethylformamide (DMF) solvent in the manufacture of PU gloves or coatings increases the safety of both Ansell workers and end users wearing gloves in their daily jobs. Using water instead of chemical solvents also results in more environmentally-friendly processes
