Ansell showcasing innovative technologies and solutions at A+A exhibition in Düsseldorf

Brussels, September 10th, 2007 – From September 18th thru 21st , Ansell Healthcare will be present at the Düsseldorf-based A+A 2007. During this year’s edition of the world’s largest trade fair dedicated to worker safety, the leading global provider of total hand protection solutions will be showcasing its latest innovations in hand protection solutions. Novelties will be demonstrated on a unique technology and solutions platform, and an invitation to the world of Ansell will offer a glimpse on the wideness of today’s Ansell solutions portfolio.

Enhancing grip performance while handling wet and oily objects is one of the key challenges in a vast majority of worker’s environments. When launching the revolutionary Ansell Grip Technology™ platform, Ansell has provided the industry a new standard for dealing with exactly that challenge. First introduced in 2005 on Ansell’s AlphaTec™, Ansell has now added this innovative technology to its famous HyFlex® family. At A+A, the company will unveil the result of this ultimate marriage.

Optimizing cut protection levels while securing comfort levels is another challenge in today’s industries. At A+A, Ansell will showcase its Cut Resistance Technology platform. Always based on a careful selection of fibres and innovative yarn designs, Ansell brings tailor-made glove ranges offering exceptional cut resistance while handling sharp tools or materials without giving in on comfort or dexterity.

Apart from bringing the most innovative solutions to the market, Ansell also aims at being a knowledge partner for anyone dealing with hand protection challenges. With GuardianSM, Ansell offers the industry a modern, rational approach to maximise return on a company’s hand protection investment. Ansell GuardianSM consultants will welcome visitors to outline the methodology and present testimonials.

It is Ansell’s mission to raise the level of safety awareness amongst all workers. Doing so, the leader in hand protection solutions continuously looks for new ways to educate professional end users, and develops tools to guide them to the most appropriate solutions.
