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.
Environmental considerations are playing an increasingly important part of the day to day operations of organisations globally and the introduction of the SHOWA 6110PF is part of our growing solution to this. It enjoys the same performance benefits of traditional nitrile including shelf life but the addition of EBT is a breakthrough for businesses wanting to reflect their positive environmental approach.
Regular nitrile gloves cannot attract enough (if any) microbial activity to begin breaking down the polymer's molecular structure, thus leaving the process of reclamation to light, heat, mechanical stress and moisture-¦ unlike the NEW SHOWA 6110PF biodegradable glove," said Globus Product Development Manager for Hand Protection, Gregory Tessier.
