PARIS, December 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

– Bringing best of both organisations together results in 9 new products and a broader
product offering -

Ansell, a global leader in protection solutions, and Comasec, the French hand

time today in Paris at ExpoProtection, the international safety and security exhibition.
The combined companies are presenting a wider offering that will bring innovative new
solutions to their customers.

“We will achieve the goals outlined in our growth strategy by investing in research
and development, embracing the latest state of the art technologies, and engaging with
partners who can facilitate the distribution of our innovative solutions, faster to our
end-users,” said Peter Dobbelsteijn, Senior Vice President & Regional Director, Ansell
EMEA. “The recent acquisition of Comasec and the acquisition of Ansell Protective
Solutions (formerly part of Trelleborg) earlier this year, has also provided us with more
comprehensive safety solutions and a well- established distributor network.”

ExpoProtection, include the new HyFlex(R) 11-518 glove, probably the thinnest and most
lightweight EN cut protection level 3 glove in the world, Comasec’s new Marigold

protection level 2 glove on the market, and the Ansell Protective Solutions Trellchem(R)
new EVO suit, providing a unique 24 hour permeation protection. Other new products
exhibited by Ansell at ExpoProtection 2012 come from the company’s market leading
