HyFlex 11-518 – Ultra-light Weight Cut Resistant Work Safety Glove

GENUINE cut protection in work safety wear has never felt this light and right.

The Ansell Hyflex® 11-518 work gloves, the world’s first ultra-lightweight cut-resistant hand protection, is a cut above the competition.

Ideal for handling fine, sharp parts, field trials on the Ansell gloves showed the HyFlex 11-518 safety wear was preferred by almost 70% of workers wearing other light to medium-duty synthetic work gloves.

Cutting edge cut protection

The workers were enthusiastic in their praise of the HyFlex 11-518 cut-protection work gloves’ bare-hand-like comfort, versatility of use and cool, dry fit.

The polyurethane palm coating provides excellent abrasion and cut resistance, equivalent to heavier duty hand protection.

The HyFlex 11-518 work safety wear’s best-in-class combination of ultra lightweight comfort and EN level 3 cut protection is made possible by a unique combination of engineered materials.

The hand protection diamond in the rough stuff
Dyneema-Diamond-TechnologyThe Ansell gloves’ soft, strong liner features Dyneema® Diamond Technology fibre. Lightweight and breathable, it ventilates the back of the hand for all-day comfort.

The Dyneema technology also provides 200% improvement in cut resistance (similar to that provided by work gloves reinforced with fibreglass or steel) while remaining lightweight, flexible, cool – and durable.

For the precision handling and assembly of sharp, dry, ultra-fine parts, Ansell’s lightweight HyFlex 11-518 cut protection work gloves provide unprecedented comfort, feel and hand protection.

From areospace to automotive, mining to metals, electrical and handling of machinery and power tools, the HyFlex 11-518 safety wear cuts the mustard in cut resistance.
