► Europe's first nitrile examination glove with antimicrobial protection
► Kills up to 99.9% of bacteria
Designed to mitigate risks of cross-contamination
Incorporating silver ion technology from BioCote
Unigloves Fortified gloves contain BioCote® with proven antimicrobial protection.
BioCote is silver ion technology. It has been used in the manufacture of Unigloves Fortified gloves to provide antimicrobial properties. Ionic silver particles are impregnated throughout the rubber nitrile during glove production.
Silver has been used for centuries for its abilities to aid preservation, for example, the ancient Greeks used silver vessels to keep their water fresh. Silver is an ideal antimicrobial agent due to its effectiveness against a range of microorganisms.
How does Silver work in gloves?
Silver ions are present at the surface of the glove and are available to act against contaminating microbes. The silver ions bind with and irreparably damage their cells; disrupt normal functions essential to survival; stopping them from reproducing and rendering them harmless.
Destroys 99.9% of bacteria
Scientifically proven results have shown that BioCote treated materials destroy 99.9% of bacteria they come into contact with.
