Complimenting a diverse line of industrial work safety gloves, MDS is proud to distribute the full line of SHOWA® glove protection products that includes the first of its kind single-use biodegradable latex-free nitrile gloves.

Back in 1953, SHOWA® revolutionized personal hand protection with the introduction of the world's first pVC glove. They lead the world in innovation with the introduction of industry-firsts such as fully coated, very flexible PVC, flat-dip innovation with natural rubber, cut-resistant gloves with unmatched protection and comfort. Today advancements like DURACoil™ technology, Breathex® foam coating, waterproof Temres® technology and their cut-resistant Hagane Coil® and S-Tex® range are unlike any other industrial work glove on the market.

Environmentally-Friendly, Biodegradable Gloves

SHOWA® has developed the world’s first disposable nitrile glove and the industry’s first biodegradable product line with their Eco Best Technology® (EBT). EBT offers the solution that makes a difference to the environment, without any compromise on protection and performance for the user.

They have achieved the GreenCircle Certification for 8 protective gloves that meet all the necessary qualifications to be certified for biodegradable claims. The ASTM D5526 certification demonstrated that SHOWA® EBT gloves achieved 82% biodegradation in only 386 days, while gloves without EBT achieved only 1.9% biodegradation over the same period of time.
