Ansell has developed a new range of cut-resistant gloves in conjunction with DuPont which use new Intercept technology yarn to create a glove that is lightweight, flexible and comfortable.

Threads of cotton, spandex, Kevlar and stainless steel are blended and weaved into a comfortable, form-fitting seamless liner. The two new products to come out of this technology include the Vantage range and the HyFlex CR+ - the latter is dipped with a foam nitrile for exceptional grip in light-oil environments.

The release of the gloves are timely as Australian Bureau of Statistics figures indicate that over 50 percent of all reported work-related injuries consisted of an open wound and 32 percent of all injuries were to the hand and fingers.
