Biodegradable Nitrile Examination Gloves

The introduction of nitrile technology has become a revolutionary contribution to the the world’s safety, offering a viable alternative to latex sensitive individuals, while providing uncompromising protection to the user. It could very well be that nitrile will eventually replace latex gloves in the glove industry. However, with the rapid growth of the human population, our world advances into the core of the 21st Century, faced with the problem of nearly overfilled landfills. We can expect the amount of trash in our landfills to increase proportionally to our current global population, with approximately 300 billion disposable gloves are used and discarded each year in the United States.

To minimize the impact of nitrile gloves on our environment, UNISEAL® offers the BIO-NIT® Biodegradable Nitrile Examination Gloves, the world’s first end-of-life solution to nitrile gloves.

The smart process that makes the difference to our world.

Our Proven Testing Methods

BIO-NIT’s biodegradation competence has been verified by U.S Laboratory.
The test results are based on the ASTM D5526 and ASTM D5511 testing methods.

Validated Degradation Rates

ASTM D5526

→ To determine the degree and rate of anaerobic biodegradation of material in accelerated landfill conditions. This is a long term test that replicates the landfill environment of low hear, high pressure, limited oxygen, no light and low moisture.

→ Results indicate that 30% of the gloves biodegraded over a course of 202 days (30 times faster compared to conventional nitrile gloves).

ASTM D5511

→ To determine the degree and rate of anaerobic biodegradation of materials in high-solidsanaerobic-digestion conditions, which replicates the anaerobic digested or landfill bioreactor environment.

→ Results indicate that 85% of the gloves biodegraded over a course of 331 days (85 times faster than conventional nitrile gloves)

*Based on a real-time study, as per the FDA 510k submission and approval.

Uncompromised Glove Quality

The BIO-NIT process does not start until the gloves are disposed into the landfills.
Our BIO-NIT technology ensures that the process begins only when the gloves are surrounded by the microbes that are present in a landfill environment.

Benefit of BIO-NIT Gloves®

→ Latest green initiative in helping to contribute to a better environment.
→ Tested to be biodegradable in a typical landfill condition.
→ Maintains the same properties and shelf-life as the conventional nitrile gloves.
→ Tested to be safe for use against skin and food contact.
→ Tested for use with certain chemotherapy drugs.
