Diamond-tech aids safety glove developments

A range of safety gloves is using a ‘diamond technology material’ that enables a thinner fabric with the same level of protection.

Ansell’s ultra-light cut-resistant range of safety gloves, the HyFlex 11-318, offer a unique combination of low weight and superior comfort through the use of an innovative fibre that is 50% thinner than the materials normally used to make cut-resistant gloves. The ultra-fine 18-gauge knit construction, provides EN Level 3 cut protection.


“We are giving users a bare-hands sensation without reducing the level of protection,” says Adrian Rusu, director, global new product development, Ansell. “A lot of customers tell us they want a glove that they can forget they are wearing, they see gloves as a constraint in their work.”

Durable and comfortable, the HyFlex 11-318 offers an ideal hand protection solution for workers in the automotive, aerospace, electronics and white goods segments of industry. The design features spandex fibres in the knuckle and palm areas of the glove, which guarantee a snug and comfortable fit.

The gloves are uncoated and silicone free. They also incorporate carbon fibres to help eliminate static electricity.
