Ansell AlphaTec 58-128

Ansell introduces the new AlphaTec® 58-128, a light duty glove with optimal performance and flexibility for workers exposed to irritant contact fluids found in the workplace.

“Workers in this environment need a glove that encourages natural movement and reduces hand fatigue just as much as they need protection against chemicals, which is why we’re proud to introduce the AlphaTec 58-128,” said Genzer.

Ansell, a global leader in protection solutions, is giving workers a better grip with the new AlphaTec 58-128, a light duty glove with optimal performance and flexibility for workers exposed to irritant contact fluids found in the workplace. The new glove features ANSELL GRIP™ Technology, which offers more precise handling of small oily or wet parts, helps to relieve hand fatigue and improves dexterity, safety and productivity.

The AlphaTec 58-128 is designed with Thin Nitrile Technology to provide a barrier for superior hand protection against oils and other irritant fluids, including selective chemical risks with forearm splash protection. The ergonomic construction combines flexible open weave knit liner and stretchy nitrile formulation coating to provide better dexterity and tactility for prolonged periods of wear for the worker. Designed to maintain a level of comfort, the glove conforms to the shape of the wearer’s hand, enabling natural movement and reducing hand fatigue.

“We found that workers handling chemicals on a daily basis were getting necessary chemical protection, but having to compromise comfort, dexterity or tactility as a result,” said Steve Genzer, President and General Manager of the Ansell Industrial Global Business Unit. “Workers in this environment need a glove that encourages natural movement and reduces hand fatigue just as much as they need protection against chemicals, which is why we’re proud to introduce the AlphaTec 58-128.”

Ansell AlphaTec 58-128 gloves are available in five sizes, and are ideal for a number of industries, including chemical, machinery & equipment, metal fabrication, automotive and agriculture.
