Jobs in highly regulated environments require unique characteristics to stay within specification. Ansell offers a wide range of gloves suitable for various applications within the pharmaceutical and electronics industries. With this chart, you can easily compare properties of our Performance and Classic Series gloves.
All Ansell products that are intended to come into contact with Foodstuffs and that therefore carry the Food (glass/fork) pictogram as defined by Commission Directive 80/590 ; are compliant to the European Regulation 1935/2004 and consequently Commission Regulation 2023/2006 related to Good Manufacturing Practice for Materials and Articles to come into contact with foodstuffs.
Moreover, they do also comply with the specific requirements of Commission Directive 2002/72 (for plastic food contact materials ) or for the rubber and textile food contact materials, with the applicable European National Regulations for food contact materials and to the applicable indirect FDA Food additive Regulations. Food migration properties are regularly controlled and monitored at our manufacturing sites and also through independent test houses to make sure that the gloves from each production lot would not transfer constituents to food in quantities that could bring an unacceptable change in the composition of the food that needs to be handled. The Food declarations of Conformity can be downloaded from the Ansell website and more detailed information can be obtained through the Ansell Compliance department.
