Ansell Expands HyFlex Products with New Solution for Touch Screen Applications

Ansell, a global leader in protection solutions, announced the introduction of the new HyFlex 11-101 and 11-105 gloves, the first touch screen-capable HyFlex gloves for industrial work environments. Both gloves are manufactured with a special conductive yarn designed to allow seamless interaction with touch screen equipment without removing gloves.

HyFlex 11-101 and 11-105 gloves are made with a conductive yarn fiber that leverages the electrical signals naturally generated by the human body to activate touch screens.  The yarn is woven with a layer of metal that provides conductivity between the fingertip and touch screen so workers do not have to remove gloves while using touch technology, improving productivity and minimizing potential safety hazards.

The HyFlex 11-101 and 11-105 gloves are now available for sale in the U.S. and will be distributed globally throughout 2013.  More information can be found at
