Refoil proudly presents the world’s first biodegradable disposable nitrile gloves. The Showa gloves are made with Eco Best Technology (EBT), breakthrough innovation that makes these gloves fully biodegradable, sustainable and the first of their kind.
Consider the number of disposable gloves used every day in hair salons Australia-wide. The numbers are astronomical. With Eco Best Technology, we help preserve the planet by accelerating each glove’s biodegradation process by up to 100 years (depending on climate and location of the landfill). And every glove makes a difference.
How it works:
When disposed in landfills, microorganisms consume, metabolize and break down EBT materials into three natural compounds— organic soil, methane and carbon dioxide. This creates fertilizer, leaving zero waste behind.
Where it Goes:
EBT requires biologically active landfills for biodegradation. Which means gloves with EBT cannot even begin to biodegrade prior to disposal. These abilities have been validated by independent certified laboratories using ASTM International test methods (ASTM D5511).
