Oil repellent, cut resistant glove
Ansell announces the first glove in the HyFlex product line to offer oil repellency, secure grip and cut resistance. The uniquely engineered HyFlex 11-927 glove features Ansell RIPEL Liquid Repellence Technology and Ansell GRIP Technology, combined with a cut resistant liner and a higher dip lining. This unique combination provides high levels of protection while retaining the dexterity that is a hallmark of the HyFlex offering, says Ansell. The innovative design brings a new level of protection, performance and oil repellence to workers facing mechanical risks in slippery conditions. 

The need to empower workers with the proper protection is critical: about 60 per cent of industrial workers performing primary assembly, metalworking and stamping operations are at risk for coming into contact with liquids, including lubricants and oils, which when absorbed through the skin can cause irritation and contamination of the body. To achieve both cut protection and oil repellence, workers are often forced to double-up on gloves, resulting in a reduction of grip or flexibility; or they select gloves that offer proper protection but absorb liquids and are prematurely discarded, increasing costs. Ansell engineered the oil repellent HyFlex 11-927 gloves to address the risks that mechanical workers face in oily environments, while still delivering the comfort, safety and durability that is the standard of the HyFlex glove series.
