Biodegradable Light-Weight Chemical Resistant Glove | Showa 731

Supplier: Showa

The 731 Biodegradable chemical resistant glove is suitable for grease, oil and light solvents. It contains our unique EBT material, thus allowing it to breakdown in landfill.

Price Guide: POA

Showa's research and development once again reaches a major breakthrough with ECO BEST TECHNOLOGY (EBT) being used in a light chemical resistant glove.

EBT accelerates the biodegradation of nitrile in biologically active landfills and anaerobic digesters as validated by independent certified laboratories using internationally recognised test methods. EBT is composed of organic materials designed to make our Biodegradable gloves attractive to microbial activity. These organisms upon consuming the EBT material excrete anzymes that depolymerise the nitrile. The final result is biogases and inert humus.

Regular nitrile gloves cannot attract enough (if any) microbial activity to begin breaking down the polymers molecular structure, thus leaving the process of reclamation to light, heat, mechanical stress and moisture. An innovative and truly ground-breaking characteristic of EBT is the ability to maintain the same physical properties (texture, appearance, Etc) as regular nitrile gloves and can be used in the same applications with no loss of performance.
