Ansell, a global leader in safety solutions, announces the launch of AlphaTec® 58-735, a new innovative nitrile glove for multi-handling, offering an unmatched combination of chemical and anti-rust protection while providing exceptional comfort. It has been developed for use in a wide range of industries, including the chemical, food, oil industry and production where high chemical and corrosion protection is required.

Industrial jobs present a number of dangers that can threaten the safety of workers. This is amplified when multiple risk or hazard factors are present, such as exposure to chemicals, liquids and solids - along with a cut risk. In fact, employees in about 60% of companies will suffer from hand injuries and skin irritation.

"When trying to protect against multiple hazards, such as cut and chemical hazards, there is often a trade-off, meaning the wrong hand protection is used. This can lead to injuries due to a lack of adequate grip or loss of dexterity, as workers struggle to handle the tool or machines to get the job done," said Paul Bryce, Vice President, Chemical Solutions Business Unit, Ansell. "Our new AlphaTec 58-735 helps overcome these potential problems - in one solution - providing chemical protection, a secure fit and excellent cut suspension combined with improved wearer comfort and efficiency."

The green nitrile outer shell has excellent chemical resistance to a wide range of chemicals, including acids, alkalis and organic solvents. As a soft, comfortable hand protection solution that effectively resists chemicals and cuts, workers across industries are more likely to wear the glove, ensuring a higher level of compliance.

HI-VIZ ™ INTERCEPT ® yarn is used on the inside of the glove to provide high performance cut protection with outstanding comfort and dexterity. If the outer shell of the glove is compromised due to mechanical action then the user can see that the chemical barrier is no longer there and the glove needs to be replaced. AlphaTec 58-735 has chemical protection type A according to the new EN ISO 374: 2016, cut level ISO C according to EN 388: 2016 or ANSI cut A3. It is also tested for cutting level 4 according to EN 388: 2003.

Grip is a very important aspect for all chemical gloves and our unique ANSELL GRIP ™ technology is added to the palms and fingers. This technology allows for less force and optimal grip control and confidence in wet or oily environments, further reducing hand fatigue and increasing worker comfort.

Completing protection against multiple hazards, the AlphaTec 58-735 glove is also tested to EN 1149 for antistatic and EN ISO 374-5 for viral risks.
