In a landfill the Showa 6100PF Biodegrades in one to five years compared to over 100 years for standard disposable gloves. In a landfill the Showa 6100PF Biodegrades in one to five years compared to over 100 years for standard disposable gloves.


The inventors of the world’s first disposable nitrile glove, now bring you the world’s first biodegradable disposable nitrile glove. 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… unlike the NEW SHOWA 6110PF biodegradable glove.

Facts About SHOWA Biodegradable Nitrile Gloves

The Worlds First Biodegradable Nitrile Glove. The "Eco Best Technology" (EBT) organic additive is added to each glove. Gloves offer high performance hand protection for many tasks. The glove's shelf life is unaffected by EBT. Non-contaminated gloves can be sent to landfill.

How It Biodegrades In Landfill

EBT makes the glove attractive to microbial activity. The gloves are digested by microbes and turned into biogasses and nitrous soil.

Biodegradation Rates

Within 6 months the gloves are 20% biodegraded. After 5 years (depending on landfill conditions) the gloves are entirely degraded. Without EBT this process would take over 100 years.

Business Benefits

  • Promotes Sustainability
  • Boosts Environmental Performance
  • Reduces Glove Treatment Costs
  • Supports Green Purchasing Policies

Biodegradable single-use glove, 100% nitrile with Eco Best Technology, powder-free, 240mm long by 0,10mm thick

Gloves with EBT maintain the same properties as regular nitrile gloves
EBT accelerates the biodegradation of nitrile in biologically active landfills
EBT is composed of organic materials designed to make 6110PF attractive to microbial activity
The microorganisms upon consuming the EBT material excrete enzymes that depolymerize the nitrile
Second skin feel
Ambidextrous; can be worn on either hand
EU Food Safe approved
