Showa Best Glove's research and development reaches a major breakthrough with ECO BEST TECHNOLOGY™ (EBT).
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 GREEN-DEX™ attractive to microbial activity. These microorganisms upon consuming the EBT material excrete enzymes 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 polymer's molecular structure, thus leaving the process of reclamation to light, heat, mechanical stress and moisture. An innovative and truly groundbreaking 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.

GREEN-DEX™ by Showa Best Glove - the World's 1st Biodegradable Nitrile Glove. GREEN-DEX™ Gloves
biodegrade much faster than regular nitrile gloves in waste disposal areas. The first environmentally
responsible hand protection without loss of usability!
For more than 100 years, Showa Best Gloves has led the personal protective equipment industry through a rich tradition of hand protection firsts.
Best® was the first glove maker to produce a wrinkled-finish coated work glove with our Nitty Gritty® in the 60s and 70s. In the 70s and 80s, we helped transform chemical hand protection as the innovator of PVC classics such as the industry’s all-time best seller, the Black Knight®. And we revolutionized the exam glove market in the 90s as the first company to deliver a latex alternative with the introduction of the revolutionary N-DEX®, the world’s first disposable nitrile exam glove. That heritage continues to this day with firsts like the N-DEX® Free, the world’s only disposable nitrile glove free of chemical accelerators commonly associated with Type IV dermatitis and rashes.
