Fentanyl is so potent that even a trace amount – the equivalent of a few grains of salt – can be lethal. In fact, it would only take 118 pounds of fentanyl to kill 25 million people. The fatal potential of even glancing contact with this drug is a major reason why national security experts are becoming alarmed at the prospect of it being used to someday sow terror.  

When in contact or suspected contact with fentanyl, single-use gloves are essential for health and safety.  Law enforcement officers, emergency medical technicians and first responders have been warned to handle fentanyl with extreme caution; some have fallen seriously ill after getting it on their skin or clothing. For paramedics, emergency medical technicians, police officers, firefighters, rescuers, and other trained members who are first on the scene, we have fentanyl-resistant disposable gloves designed to protect you!

Fentanyl is the most potent opioid available for medical treatments. It is utilized as a surgical anesthetic or a narcotic for chronic, severe cancer pain. It is a Class II “Incapacitating Agent” per the CDC and is 8000% more potent than morphine. However, recreational fentanyl is being illegally produced and sold as heroin.

Fentanyl can be inhaled, ingested, or absorbed through the skin with effects ranging from disorientation, coughing, sedation, respiratory distress or even cardiac arrest that can occur within seconds of contact. The DEA has deemed fentanyl an “unprecedented threat” and this drug is a concern for accidental exposure within EMS, police, and emergency room environments. These risk factors emphasize the importance of offering disposable gloves that have been tested for fentanyl permeation, particularly for the EMS, police and emergency room environments.

The opioid crisis has become so prevalent that the United States Surgeon General has issued a rare public health advisory urging friends and family of people at risk for opioid overdosed to carry the OD-reversal medication naloxone as it is easy to use, it’s lifesaving, and it’s available throughout the country fairly easily.

SW® Sustainable Solutions Single-Use Nitrile Gloves were tested for fentanyl permeation by an accredited, DEA-compliant, independent testing laboratory. In accordance with standards, the gloves were specifically tested for breakthrough time – the point at which the chemical reaches a predetermined threshold on the opposite side of the glove film. The tests demonstrated that there was no permeation over the duration of the test period (240 minutes) for the brands listed.
