Ansell announces the introduction of Microflex 93-260, its thinnest chemical-resistant, single-use glove. This breakthrough solution offers tough protection against a broad range of chemicals, while still providing the dexterity and tactility of a thin, disposable glove, says the company.
Traditional disposable gloves are designed to provide protection against chemicals for only short periods of time – in the event of a splash; while chemical gloves typically have a thicker, sturdier design for longer lasting protection. The new Microflex 93-260 is a thin, disposable glove designed to offer higher levels of protection against chemicals for longer periods of time than ordinary single-use gloves. The glove achieves this through an innovative three-layer design that resists a wide range of aggressive chemicals. The exterior nitrile layer delivers maximum protection against organic solvents, while the soft neoprene middle layer provides acid and base resistance. A final interior layer provides a continual dry feel, while also easing the donning and doffing process.
“There are many jobs in different industries that require people to be reliably protected against chemicals while manipulating small parts and pieces with their fingers,” said Joe Kubicek, president and general manager of the Ansell Single Use Global Business Unit. “As the thinnest chemical-resistant, single-use glove available, the new Microflex 93-260 offers the resistance against harsh chemicals that these workers need, with the comfort, fit and feel they need to be more productive.”
Microflex 93-260 gloves are available in sizes XS to XXL (5.5-11) and feature textured fingers and an extended cuff for added protection. In addition, the glove meets ASTM D 3577, EN 420, EN 388 Abrasion Level 2 and EN374-JKL performance standards.
