GREEN-DEX™ by Showa Best Glove - the World's 1st Biodegradable Nitrile Glove

Landfill Biodegradable - Responsible use of Disposable Plastic

The inventors of the world’s first disposable nitrile glove, N-DEX® , now bring you the world’s first biodegradable disposable nitrile glove, GREEN-DEX™ . Showa Best Glove’s Research & Development reaches a major breakthrough with ECO BEST TECHNOLOGY™ (EBT). EBT accelerates the biodegradation of nitrile in biologically active landfills and anaerobic digesters as validated by independent certified laboratories using internationally recognized test methods. EBT is composed of organic materials designed to make GREEN-DEX™ attractive to microbial activity. These microorganisms upon consuming the EBT material excrete enzymes that depolymerize the nitrile. The final result is biogases and inert humus.

Green-Dex™ shipping cases are made from 100% post consumer recycled material.

*Biodegradation has been verified by independent laboratory using ASTM D5511 for anaerobic landfill conditions.


GREEN-DEX™ Keeps All the Performance of N-DEX™ Gloves, and Is Also Eco-Friendly:

Regular 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. An innovative and truly groundbreaking characteristic of the EBT additive is the ability to maintain the same physical properties (texture, appearance, chemical protection etc.) as regular nitrile gloves but with the added advantage of being landfill-biodegradable.
