Ansell, a specialist in protection solutions has introduced its new TouchNTuff 83-500 Sterile Polyisoprene and TouchNTuff 93-700 Sterile Nitrile gloves. Both gloves are designed to provide maximum comfort and performance in manufacturing environments requiring sterility.

The TouchNTuff 83-500 Sterile Polyisoprene glove is made of 100 per cent synthetic polyisoprene, a polymer designed to mimic the structure and attributes of natural rubber, suitable for users with latex allergies (Type I). The style provides wearers with a ‘second skin’ fit and feel said to deliver unrivalled comfort. Combined with Ansell patent-pending SureFit Technology, the gloves fit to the forearm and prevent the cuff from rolling down, maintaining the integrity of a sterile environment. The gloves also offer an enhanced anti-slip finish on the surface of the fingers and palm for a greater degree of grip in both wet and dry work environments.

The TouchNTuff 93-700 Sterile Nitrile glove style is said to offer robust ­performance and chemical splash protection. Laboratory tests indicate the thinner gloves are more puncture and tear-resistant than latex alternatives, maximising protection and providing superior strength. Designed for sterile environments, the TouchNTuff 93-700 glove style provides a higher level of chemical splash exposure resistance for a wide range of chemicals, ­maintaining a high degree of comfort, longer cuffs for forearm safety and ­textured fingertips for optimal grip ­performance.
