ActivArmr 97-120® ensures best in class grip, comfort and safety

Workers in these rugged and extreme conditions should not have to sacrifice comfort or protection for performance, and the ActivArmr® 97-120 provides a much-needed solution, ensuring these workers can stay safe, and keep their hands dry and comfortable.

Ansell, a global leader in protection solutions, announces the new ActivArmr® 97-120, providing oil and gas upstream workers with outstanding mud-oil grip, seamless comfort and dexterity, and impact protection. This new ActivArmr product features ANSELL GRIP Technology™, and its patented coating treatment, which reduces the force required to grip oily or wet tools or materials. This ensures safer handling, helps to relieve hand fatigue, and improves dexterity, safety and productivity.

The ActivArmr 97-120 also features Ansell’s RIPEL™ Liquid Repellence Technology, which creates a liquid-impermeable layer in knit glove styles preventing most oils or lubricants from making even incidental contact with the wearer’s skin. Additionally, the impact bumpers on the back-of-hand help to protect from medium-level impact injury. The unique combination of enhanced oil grip, oil repellency, and impact protection provide an increased level of safety and efficiency for those facing hazardous conditions in oil and gas upstream environments.    

“The number one need for upstream workers is grip,” says Scott Corriveau, President and General Manager of the Ansell Industrial Global Business Unit. “Workers in these rugged and extreme conditions should not have to sacrifice comfort or protection for performance, and the ActivArmr 97-120 provides a much-needed solution, ensuring these workers can stay safe, and keep their hands dry and comfortable, while getting the job done.”

Product innovation from Ansell reflects ongoing global research among safety officers, operations managers, purchasing agents, and workers through Ansell’s Worker Experience Innovation program. This process transforms global insights about unmet user needs into technology-based solutions that enhance worker comfort, performance, and protection.

Ansell ActivArmr 97-120 gloves are available in five sizes and are ideal for production services tasks including: drilling, pressure pumping, cementing, well services, casing, and wireline services.
