N-DEX® Biodegradable Single-Use Black Nitrile Gloves

Protection.   Preservation.   Performance.

Showa® N-DEX™ Biodegradable Black Nitrile GlovesValidated by independent certified laboratories using ASTM International test methods (ASTM D5526 & D5511)

It seems like single-use gloves are worn virtually everywhere making them essential for health and safety. Simple, inexpensive and practical, they protect wearers from cross contamination and are regulated by the government to be worn to cover the hand when handling consumer type items such as food or pharmaceuticals because, well, hands can be dirty and transmit all types of nasty stuff.

When you consider how many people wear and dispose single-use gloves in hospitals, offices, schools, warehouses, labs and food service and processing establishments every day, the numbers are outrageous. For most businesses, workers simply toss these gloves into the garbage where they make their way to landfills and studies have shown, it can take 100+ years to decompose.

Improve Sustainability / Boost Green Credentials / Reduce Recycling Costs & Landfill Waste

In an attempt to eliminate landfill waste, SHOWA™ has introduced its line of biodegradable single-use nitrile gloves and they are being well received by environmentally conscience businesses!

Did you know that disposable gloves take 100+ years to breakdown? Well that's about to change! Crafted with SHOWA’s revolutionary patent-pending Eco Best Technology® (EBT), it is the breakthrough innovation that makes these N-DEX™ gloves fully biodegradable, sustainable and the first of their kind. These abilities have been validated by independent certified laboratories using SSTM international test methods (ASTM D5526 & ASTM D5511) which has confirmed that 20% of a N-DEX® glove will have biodegraded in 160 days with full biodegradtion within 1-5 years!

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 these NEW SHOWA 6112PF biodegradable gloves! EBT accelerates the biodegradation of nitrile in biologically active landfills and it does not alter the protective nature or shelf life of the glove nor will it begin to biodegrade prior to disposal. When disposed in landfills,an EBT organic additive is designed to make N-DEX® attractive to microbial activity in a landfill. Upon consumption of the EBT formulation, micro-organisms excrete enzymes that breaks down the nitrile leaving zero waste behind.

Decreased risk of allergies make these perfect for public utilities, petrochemical, janitorial, housekeeping, public utlilites, gardening, growing/processing, landscaping, mueseums, laboratory, pharmaceutical, food processing, automotive and agriculture. These snug-fitting SHOWA™ black colored nitrile gloves use body temperature to mold to the shape of the hand, ensuring a snug and comfortable fit for the wearer providing what is referred to as a second-skin fit and feel. N-DEX® Biodegradable Single-Use Nitrile Gloves are ideal for brief intermittent contact with some chemicals, including certain acids, alcohols, alkalies and ketones.
