HYFLEX® 11-920 Gloves Combine Oil Repellency and Gripping Technology

Nov. 1, 2007
Workers in the metal fabrication industries who have struggled to find an oil repellent glove with gripping properties now have an innovative glove option from Ansell Healthcare. Ansell’s new HyFlex® 11-920 gloves provide excellent grip in oily conditions by utilizing patent-pending Ansell Grip Technology™ in the palm coat to wick oil away from the glove surface while preventing oil penetration, thereby reducing the risk of dermatitis and eliminating the need to double glove. HyFlex® 11-920 gloves allow material handling workers to effectively grip wet or oily objects with significantly less force, keeping them comfortable, healthy and protected. The Ansell Grip Technology™ creates a roughened surface of microscopic channels in an ultra-thin nitrile coating on the outside for grip with a barrier of nitrile. The outer surface directs fluid away from the glove’s surface in much the same way that tire treads manage water on a roadway. In addition, a thin barrier of nitrile on the inside of the glove prevents oil from penetrating, protects skin and reinforces the high abrasion resistance and wear life. The flexible nitrile dip coating used in and out of the HyFlex® 11-920 makes these gloves ergonomically friendly. It preserves dexterity, which makes workers more confident and productive in handling slippery objects and provides the fit, feel and comfort of the HyFlex design. HyFlex® 11-920 are highly favorable for dry to moderately wet or oily objects and are recommended for the following industries: Metal fabrication, Automotive, Transportation, Tier One, White goods and Machinery applications. The gloves are also machine launderable for an extended life and reduced replacement costs. HyFlex® 11-920 is available in sizes 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11.
