The Ansell HyFlex 11-624 work glove, small, size 7, helps protect hands from cuts and abrasions, is knit from Dyneema fiber for strength and durability, and has a black polyurethane coating on the palm and fingers for dexterity and to resist wear. Dyneema fiber, also known as UHMWPE (ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene) fiber, offers greater cut protection than leather, greater abrasion resistance than aramid fibers, and greater strength than steel. The glove has an elasticized wrist cuff to help hold it in place on the hand and a variable knit stitch design for a barehanded feeling and breathability. The cuff has a rolled edge to help prevent chafing. This glove can be laundered with minimal shrinkage and without affecting its cut resistance. It meets American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Level 2 standards for cut resistance and ANSI Level 5 standards for abrasion resistance. It is suitable for assembling sharp components, metal fabrication, handling and installing glass, and other material handling tasks.
Work gloves help protect the hands, can cover the wrists, and sometimes extend to cover part, or all, of the arm. Work gloves are typically constructed from leather or heavy cotton and are suitable for use in construction, mechanical, landscaping, and do-it-yourself applications to help protect against minor cuts and abrasions. Work gloves for use in manufacturing and construction industries can be made of woven, high-strength synthetic fiber to resist cuts from heavy machinery and withstand high levels of heat without melting. Work gloves may also be made of, or include, flame retardant material for use in welding and other heavy-duty applications.
Ansell manufactures gloves and protective clothing. The company, founded in 1905, is headquartered in Red Bank, NJ.
