BRUSSELS, October 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Innovation exclusivity for all countries outside North America Ansell, a global leader in protection solutions, is launching a range of injection-molded, high-visibility gloves for the construction industry at the Batimat trade fair, which opens in Paris on 4 November 2013. In the spotlight at Ansell booth 7 N27 is the exclusive ActivArmr ® 97- 321 hi-viz, an extremely durable, heavy-duty glove made with the Ansell ActivArmr® Madgrip Injection Technology™. This innovative approach merges a grip coating onto a single seamless knitted liner. The result is excellent impact protection, grip and durability, while offering improved comfort and dexterity over standard cut and sew gloves. With a vivid orange color to maximize visibility in dark or low-light conditions, the gloves are ideal for heavy construction, mechanical services and maintenance.

The new ActivArmr® 97-321 glove was designed to provide padded protection in critical areas of the hand and knuckles: its impact resistance was tested to be higher than that of leather gloves, and confirmed a significantly reduced force of impact transmitted to the hand. This unique injection molding technique allows for more elastic material to be used on the padded parts, resulting in better impact protection from crushed fingers and bruising compared to comparable gloves. Superior grip and abrasion resistance The surface grip of ActivArmr Madgrip Injection Technology is abrasion-resistant and durable. The superior grip attributes increase productivity and helps prevent injuries that can occur from the slippage of tools, etc. Outstanding results in dry grip and abrasion were obtained for the ActivArmr® construction gloves in competitor benchmark testing. ActivArmr® 97-300, 310 and 321 proved at least three times more durable than leather gloves.
