Biodegradable nitrile glove

Published:  08 March, 2019

GLOBUS GROUPS says it has enhanced its market-leading single-use disposable gloves range with the introduction of the SHOWA 6110PF new biodegradable nitrile glove.

The company says using SHOWA’S groundbreaking Eco Best Technology (EBT) the new 6110PF provides the same physical properties as traditional nitrile gloves – durability, texture, fit and performance along with the same shelf life - but with one added dimension.

After being used, the addition of EBT, which contains an organic additive, during the manufacturing process, makes the gloves attractive to microbial activity when disposed of in landfills. As a result Microorganisms consume, metabolise and break down EBT materials into three natural compounds - organic soil, methane and carbon dioxide.

Ideally suited for use in non-hazardous contamination environments, the EU Food Safe approved 6110PF will fully biodegrade with 5 years.

The new glove forms part of Globus’ growing range of biodegradable gloves, which can be seen at
