New Range of Single-use Nitrile Gloves Introduced

Apr 19 2017 Comments 0

Hand protection specialist Globus has worked with global manufacturer Showa to launch a brand new range of premium single-use nitrile gloves for the pharmaceutical sector combining comfort, dexterity and chemical protection.

Designed to build on the highly renowned Showa N-DEX® gloves, the new range takes high quality, single-use nitrile hand protection to new levels for workers in lab and clean room settings or where harmful chemicals are being used.

Manufactured using 100% nitrile, the result is a comprehensive single-use offer, providing high levels of comfort and grip in addition to enhanced chemical resistance compared to traditionally-used gloves.

Combining years of technical expertise, Showa’s new nitrile range includes 9 different styles in 3 thicknesses, 2 different lengths and sizes from XS to XL, providing effective barrier solutions against multiple chemical hazards.

The unique Showa low modulus formulation enables the gloves to relax and quickly mould to the wearer’s hands for a greater fit and to reduce hand fatigue. The textured finish on the fingertips also provides enhanced grip for the user.

Silicone and powder-free for safer use, the new single use nitrile range is available in different colours and performance features including accelerator-free, antistatic and hi-viz options featuring AQL ratings ranging from 0.65 to 1.5. The majority of the range is also food approved.

CAT III certified in addition to being EN374-2, EN374-3 and EN455 compliant, all gloves are supplied dual labelled for both for PPE and medical care environments. Full and extensive chemical permeation data is also available for each of the gloves in the range to ensure the right solution for specific environments is selected.

Two gloves – the SHOWA 7580 and SHOWA 7585 - have also been tested to EN 388:2003. Both gloves are 0.20mm thick yet provide market leading abrasion resistance of level 3 and puncture performance of level 1. They are also certified against EN374-3 JKL for chemical resistance – two of only a handful of gloves available on the market with this certification.

To ensure the right glove is chosen for specific needs, Globus’ hand protection experts are also on hand to help H&S professionals select the right solution.
