HyFlex® 11-518
by Ansell


11-518-Aerospace

Ansell HyFlex® 11-518 gloves are the first 18-gauge gloves to provide a barehand-like sensation without compromising cut protection. Many gloves rated for ANSI Cut Level 2 are heavy, uncomfortable and often discarded. HyFlex 11-518 gloves are lightweight and breathable, keeping skin cool and dry for all-day wear. During field trials, nearly 70 percent of workers who used heavier gloves for similar tasks preferred HyFlex 11-518 gloves, a comfort preference that correlates with compliance.


Ultralight Ansell HyFlex® 11-518 medium duty gloves are rated for ANSI Cut Level 2 (EN cut level 3) protection, making them ideal for precision handling and assembly of sharp, ultra-fine parts. A flexible, palm-dipped polyurethane coating combined with soft, tough Dyneema® Diamond Technology fiber contributes to the high cut scores while delivering ANSI Abrasion Level 3 for extended glove life. Ansell’s D3 pinky knitting ensures a tailored fit to better match the hands’ natural contours.
