Ansell, a leader in protection solutions, has introduced Microflex 93-260, claimed to be the thinnest chemical resistant, single use gloves available on the market today. This solution offers tough protection against a broad range of chemicals, while still providing the dexterity and tactility of a thin, disposable glove.
Traditional disposable gloves are designed to provide protection against chemicals for only short periods of time, while chemical gloves typically have a thicker, sturdier design for longer lasting protection. The new Microflex 93-260 is a thin, disposable glove designed to offer higher levels of protection against chemicals for longer periods of time than ordinary single use gloves. The glove achieves this through an innovative three-layer design that resists a wide range of aggressive chemicals. Its exterior nitrile layer delivers maximum protection against several organic solvents, while the soft neoprene middle layer provides acid and base resistance. A final interior layer provides a continual dry feel, while also easing the putting on and removing process. The glove is just 0.19mm thick, so it offers this protection while also providing tactility and dexterity for easy handling of small parts and tools.
“There are many jobs in different industries that require people to be reliably protected against chemicals while manipulating small parts and pieces with their fingers,” said Joe Kubicek, president and general manager of the Ansell Single Use Global Business Unit. “As the thinnest chemical resistant, single use glove available, the new Microflex 93-260 offers the resistance against harsh chemicals that these workers need, with the comfort, fit and feel they need to be more productive.”
