Ultralight weight style combines protection and comfort for unique multi-purpose glove
27 June 2016 - Iselin, NJ - Ansell, a global leader in protection solutions, announces the launch of the HyFlex 11-925, the first ultralight weight HyFlex style to combine the protection of three-fourths dip coating and the performance of an oil grip and repellent finish in a single comfortable, “second skin” glove.
The innovative glove features both Ansell RIPEL™ Liquid Repellence Technology and Ansell GRIP™ Technology. The former prevents oil or lubricants from making contact with the wearer's skin, reducing the risk of skin irritation, while the latter is a patented grip feature that wicks away oil and moisture from the surface of the glove, ensuring safer handling and secure grip. The result is a unique combination of flexibility, grip, and comfort that gives users the ability to do their jobs safely and productively, while minimizing risk of irritation and discomfort.
“We found a need in the industry for a glove that provides a secure grip in oily environments while also providing lasting comfort; otherwise workers just simply take off their gloves when they become saturated,” said Steve Genzer, President and General Manager of the Ansell Industrial Global Business Unit. “By combining our proprietary technologies, we’re able to offer an extremely thin, comfortable glove that still provides the protection and performance workers in oily environments need.”
As the most recent addition to the HyFlex line, the 11-925 is the companion to the HyFlex 11-926, an oil-repellent multi-purpose glove launched in March 2015 to provide a light duty glove with enhanced durability for extended wear time. The complementary gloves share many of the same oil protection features, with the 11-925 offering a thinner and ultralight weight fit for increased dexterity, flexibility, and tactility for handling finer or smaller parts.
Ansell HyFlex 11-925 gloves are available in six sizes and are ideal for a number of industries, including automotive and auto OEM, electrical machinery, metal fabrication, power tools, and transportation equipment.
Since its inception in 1996, the HyFlex brand has become the world’s best-selling precision assembly glove with millions of pairs sold. HyFlex empowers workers to do their job more effectively, comfortably, and safely every day.
While HyFlex maintains its goal of providing an ideal balance of protection, comfort, and performance for workers, it continues to innovate through research to meet industry needs.
