In 15 years, HyFlex® has gained critical recognition and market share for its winning combination of ergonomic design, comfort and superior mechanical protection. Today, the HyFlex® range extends to 28 individual styles, ensuring that there is a glove that fits every worker's job performance requirements and comfort expectations.

This milestone pays tribute to the HyFlex® original brand concept which is all about delivering protection and comfort without compromise. With innovation being the hallmark of the HyFlex® glove range success today, Ansell is committed to continue to innovate and develop new ways of ensuring that our HyFlex® series remains in pole position, and is the number one choice for workers across the globe."
The HyFlex® brand is the most comprehensive light-duty synthetic portfolio in the industry. Its world-leading patented Zonz™ Knit Technology reduces hand fatigue by providing stress release in the knuckle areas, setting new standards in the market.
