Single-Use Biodegradable BLACK EBT Nitrile Gloves

GreenCircle® Certified Using ASTM International Test Methods (ASTM D5526 & D5511). 

ASTM D6978-05 Certified to Resist Fatal Toxins

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.Showa® 6112PF (N-DEX™) Biodegradable Black Nitrile Gloves

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 landfill and studies have shown, it can take 100+ years to decompose.

Fast forward to today and biodegradable technologies allow users to dispose their dirty gloves into the trash along with food scraps!

Boost LEED Credentials, Reduce Recycling Costs & Landfill Waste

In an attempt to eliminate landfill and pollution, SHOWA® has ushered a new era in disposable hand protection and introduced its line of colorful biodegradable single-use nitrile gloves that are being well received by environmentally conscience businesses, especially LEED® certified buildings!

Did you know that conventional disposable gloves take 200+ 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 SHOWA® 6112PF black gloves fully biodegradable and the first of their kind.

Certified Biodegradable

SHOWA®GREENCIRCLE CERTIFIED BIODEGRADABLE  has achieved the GreenCircle® certification for this sustainable 6112PF nitrile glove meeting all the necessary qualifications to be certifiedand labeled for biodegradable claims.

The ASTM D5526 test 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. EBT offers the solution that makes a difference to the environment, without any compromise on protection and performance for the user.

Eco Best® Technology

Conventional 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 SHOWA® 6112PF biodegradable latex-free gloves!

Featuring Eco Best® Technology (EBT), it 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 landfill, an EBT organic additive is designed to make the glove 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, zoos, petrochemical, janitorial, spas/salons, housekeeping, public utlilites, gardening, growing/processing, landscaping, tattoo studios, spas, EMS, mueseums, volunteer environmental clean ups, laboratory, pharmaceutical, food processing, automotive and agriculture.

These snug-fitting SHOWA® 6112PF black colored latex-free low-modulus 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. SHOWA® 6112PF Biodegradable Single-Use Nitrile Gloves are ideal for brief intermittent contact with some chemicals, including certain acids, alcohols, alkalies and ketones.
