OUR ENVIRONMENTAL VISION

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. Join us today and embark on the journey to begin your first step in the green initiative and contribute to the conservation of the environment.

Green Field

The smart process that makes the difference to our world.

Inside the Factory

Layers of organic additives are added to the nitrile glove which acts as a “food source” to microbes found within the landfills.

Glove Usage

Our examination nitrile gloves are used for a wide range of purposes, ranging from procedural medical use to every day industrial and general protection. BIO-NIT technology promises durable gloves that will not compromise safety during performance.

Glove Disposal

Subsequent to the glove’s usage, the gloves are are disposed in landfills and attract microorganism that consume the gloves.

Into The Landfill

After an accumulated period of time, the BIO-NIT technology begins to take in effect. By 331 days, 85% of the glove is broken down into natural gases and nitrous soils, reducing the total volume of the BIO-NIT glove from 100% to < 6%.

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.
