Leading hand protection innovators TraffiGlove have launched an exciting new Tri Polymer Blend disposable glove. The ‘Sustain’ degrades by an impressive 82% in 90 days, an incredible achievement when compared to traditional nitrile gloves which can take over 100 years to degrade in landfill.

There has never been a time like now when this is more important, within the first 6 months of the Covid-19 response NHS England’s issued PPE is calculated to have generated 158,838 tonnes of CO2e, equating to 882 tonnes per day!

85% less energy is used per tonne to make natural rubber compared to nitrile rubber.

The Sustain comes in recyclable packaging, further enhancing its environmental saving credentials.

Could this be a quick environmental win? It’s not only sustainable however, here are more benefits…

  • The Tri Polymer characteristics result in a 25% increase in stretch and comfort meaning less hand fatigue.
  • The Sustain has been dermatologically approved by the Skin Health Alliance. The recommendations in hand protection products is that the latex protein should be 50µg/g or less. At 50 µg/g, the product will be considered very low risk of allergic reaction. The Sustain, due to its unique tri-polymer production processes, achieves levels of under 25 µg/g making the chances of an allergic reaction even less likely.
  • It’s cooler to the skin than standard disposable nitrile.
  • The Sustain is tested to EN374-1,2,4 & 5. EN455 Part 1,2 & 3. EN16523-1. ISO14855-1:2012. EN1186/Regulation EU 10/2011 Food Approved.
