Ansell and DuPont Protection Technologies have collaborated to develop HyFlex® 11-515 work gloves, the newest addition to the record-setting Ansell HyFlex® product portfolio. Combining exceptional comfort and an exclusive, high visibility DuPont™ Kevlar® Stretch Armor liner, the new gloves offer ANSI Level 4 Cut Protection and a high visibility appearance to keep workers' hands safe in low light situations. An orange foam nitrile coated palm provides ANSI Level 4 abrasion resistance and ensures longer life, with new "safety yellow" Intercept Technology® yarn providing outstanding visibility and dexterity. The patented KVSD (Knitted Variable Stitch Design) releases tension in high stress areas to improve comfort and fit. An extended cuff and enhanced cuff overedging supply additional cut protection and elasticity in the highly sensitive wrist area. Leveraging over 100 years of industry expertise from Ansell with DuPont's patented innovations in cut protection, the ergonomically designed HyFlex 11-515 gloves offer superior grip and tactility in light oil or dry environments.
Suggested applications include sharp small part handling, door and wood framing, glass installation, paper slitting, knife handling and maintenance operations in a range of industries, including aerospace/transportation, automotive, metal fabrication, paper manufacturing, plastics/injection molding and public utilities. "While high visibility gloves have a mature presence in specialty markets such as construction, these new HyFlex 11-515 gloves represent an emerging trend within the industrial sector," said Bob Gaither, Senior Vice President and Regional Director - North America, Ansell Protective Products Inc. "With high visibility elements that allow for easy hand signaling and increased personal safety, HyFlex 11-515 gloves incorporate new technology to improve comfort and efficiency for workers around the world." "HyFlex 11-515 gloves are an industry leading example of the innovative nature of DuPont™ Kevlar® yarn and its ability to protect workers in challenging environments," said William F. Weber, vice president of DuPont Protection Technologies North America. "Combining DuPont fiber and yarn technology with innovative design from Ansell, the new HyFlex 11-515 gloves herald a new level of safety and performance."
