Biodegradable nitrile glove range launched

Globus Group has enhanced its single-use disposable gloves range with the introduction of the SHOWA 6110PF biodegradable nitrile glove.

Using SHOWA’S Eco Best Technology (EBT), the new 6110PF provides the same physical properties as traditional nitrile gloves - durability, texture, fit, chemical resistance, 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, 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 within five years.
