PROSENSO™ Biodegradable is a brand new and revolutionizing nitrile glove product manufactured by Eastwest Medico ApS.
The gloves are made by a new and unique NBR (Nitrile Butadiene Rubber) formula that enables the gloves to biodegrade by microbial action in aerobic as well as anaerobic environments.
The biodegradation occurs in a two-step process. Firstly, the surface of the gloves undergoes erosion, by which the outermost layer of the gloves breaks down. In the second step, microorganisms secrete enzymes that chemically break down the remainings of the glove. The resulting product is a nutrient-rich, water-insoluble food source that the microbial population can readily consume.
The gloves can be used as medical gloves, as well as for food handling. Finally, PROSENSO™ Biodegradable are also safe to use with chemo drugs and fentanyl, making it an all-round glove for most purposes.
