Ansell HyFlex 11-644 Work Gloves Boost Protection and Performance


RED BANK, N.J. (April 3, 2012)Ansell launches its new HyFlex® 11-644 gloves with Ansell Cut Protection Technology™ to boost worker comfort and on-the-job confidence. The work gloves combine a proprietary blend of High Performance Polyethylene (HPPE) engineered yarn with a gray polyurethane palm coating to provide ANSI Level 2 cut protection and Level 5 abrasion protection. Ansell Cut Protection Technology also ensures a high level of dexterity and flexibility and promotes longer wear.

“HyFlex 11-644 gloves are an effective way for safety professionals to reduce injury expenses without sacrificing quality or productivity,” said Laura Proctor, Senior Marketing Manager, HyFlex/Industrial Gloves, Ansell Protective Products. “We designed the work gloves for tactility, precision and a lightweight ergonomic fit so employees want to wear them – especially when handling small, sharp parts.”

New HyFlex 11-644 gloves are soft and cool to the skin for all day comfort and mold naturally to the hands, preventing fatigue. The product provides a sure grip in light oil and dry applications to increase worker assurance in almost any environment.

Tear resistant HyFlex 11-644 gloves are recommended for handling metal components in final and sub-assembly areas, glass handling and installation, forming, machining and bending small parts, small part stamping and wiring. They are applicable for a range of industries, from aerospace and automotive to construction, electronics, public utilities, transportation and white/durable goods.

The gloves have excellent abrasion resistance for long life. They may be laundered and re-used without any loss in cut protection. Minimal shrinkage and excellent recovery also extend product wear life.

“Manufacturers and others are constantly looking for ways to increase cost performance,” Proctor said. “The HyFlex 11-644 product offers financial advantages in terms of enhanced worker protection and performance with a lower total cost of ownership.”

HyFlex 11-644 work gloves are available in a broad range of sizes, 6-12 (XS-XXXL), to fit all workers.
