Dec. 19, 2014 – Ansell’s “Oil is a Chemical” campaign hopes to raise awareness of manufacturing industries about the health challenges that can result from prolonged exposure to oil.

According to the company, oil and lubricants are a contributing factor in the development of occupational skin disease (allergies and dermatitis) when absorbed through the skin. Aiming to provide dexterous oil-resistant gloves, the company has introduced its next generation HyFlex general-purpose knit gloves with an oil-repellent impermeable outer layer. Workers “no longer need to compromise on protection in order to wear the right glove for oily tasks,” it says. The line also incorporates Ansell Grip Technology boasting exceptional grip on slippery, oily surfaces.
