Oil is a Chemical Too

When industrial workers are routinely exposed to oil, it can lead to skin diseases such as dermatitis and eczema. These diseases can cause workers to experience discomfort or decreased productivity on the job – putting their well-being and hand safety at risk. In turn, that can cost a company lost worktime and increased worker compensation dollars.

For workers that need protection against oil to keep their hands healthy while still having a glove that can stand up to cut risks, Ansell is introducing the HyFlex® 11-928, a double dipped dual protection mechanical glove. Combining cut and mechanical fluids protection, this glove significantly reduces the risk of harmful exposures, allowing the worker to focus on the task at hand in areas with higher levels of cut risks. INTERCEPT TECHNOLOGY™ provides comfortable cut protection, while Ansell Grip Technology™ provides excellent handling in applications with exposure to oil.
