Ansell AlphaTec refuellers’ gloves

Thursday, 18 March, 2010 | Supplied by: Ansell

AlphaTec gloves are suitable for personnel who are required to refuel aircraft, tanks and other equipment. The gloves meet all Australian Defence Force requirements, including chemical hazard standard EN 374-1:2003 (AS/NZS 2161.10.1:2005).

The gloves’ grip technology provides an ultra-thin nitrile coating to direct fluids away from the grip surface, which is claimed to deliver good grip in oily and wet environments.

The surface configuration works in a manner similar to tyre treads cutting through water on a roadway, with the channels propelling oils and other lubricants away from the pressure surface. This provides a relatively dry contact area that allows workers to maintain almost the same grip in oily applications they would have in dry conditions.

Poor grip when handling oil-coated objects in refuelling environments reduces comfort and may increase fatigue or muscle strain, leading to loss of control and a reduction in safety.
