Ansell AlphaTec 58-270 chemical-resistant, liquid-proof glove

Friday, 21 May, 2010 | Supplied by: Ansell



Ansell has launched the AlphaTec 58-270 lightweight chemical-resistant, liquid-proof glove designed to enable the handling of oily and slippery parts.

The glove is claimed to combine comfort, precise handling, good grip and skin protection; anywhere chemicals, including oils, are present, allowing multitasking and improved productivity as wearers do not have to change gloves. Because oil does not penetrate or degrade the coating, the glove lasts longer and its thin, double-wall nitrile shell offers users tactility and flexibility.

The glove uses the company’s ‘wet grip’ technology that allows workers to gain a safe hold on slippery objects while applying minimal force. The technology is claimed to actively repel oils and other lubricants away from the pressure surface via microscopic channels in the coating, resulting in a significant contact area that remains dry and possesses almost the same grip as fluid-free conditions.

The glove is recommended for light handling applications in environments with potential chemical hazards, including the chemical industry, underground mining, oil refineries and production, automotive, maintenance, metal, machinery and equipment, and building and construction.
