Ansell is lightening up its hand protection
line with new HyFlex Ultra-Lite 11-618 work gloves, the lightest gloves with a
liner and coating that Ansell has ever offered. Made with a nylon liner and
polyurethane coating, HyFlex 11-618 gloves are .8 mm thick and 20 percent
lighter than similar Ansell products.
An ultralight-weight 18-gauge seamless liner
enhances flexibility, tactility and handling efficiency. The polyurethane
coating covers only the palm and fingers, allowing greater breathability and
Offering a Level 3 rating for abrasion
resistance and Level 1 for cuts, HyFlex 11-618 gloves are ideal for a range of
applications requiring a higher level of touch and precision, including light
and final assembly, white goods and electrical goods manufacturing, cosmetics/plastics,
finishing works and applications that require workers to pick up and fit small
pieces such as bearings and springs.
The gloves are appropriate for dry and
slightly oily environments.
"During testing, HyFlex 11-618 gloves
proved highly acceptable to workers because they are lightweight, flexible and
very comfortable," said Laura Proctor, Senior Marketing Manager,
HyFlex/Industrial Gloves, Ansell Protective Products. "The gloves are
especially appropriate for applications in which workers typically wear cotton
products or no gloves at all. The fact that they are comfortable and light
enough to wear all day helps ensure compliance."
HyFlex 11-618 gloves are durable and feature a
dark blue liner and black coating for environments with a certain degree of
dirt. They show no dirt, which helps reduce glove waste.
New HyFlex 11-618 gloves are suited to the
automotive and automotive OEM industry, aerospace, white goods, power tools,
transport equipment and electrical machinery industriesamong others. They are
offered in sizes 6-11 to provide optimum fit and comfort for every worker.
