Antimicrobial, blue, medical grade, medium weight nitrile examination gloves

 

SKU: GF0013

Description

Antimicrobial, blue, medical grade, medium weight nitrile examination gloves

What they do
Designed to mitigate risks of cross contamination, Fortified gloves are protected from colonisation by microbes like bacteria and mould, enhanced technology and are a more hygienic alternative to standard examination gloves.

Proven
Fortified gloves have been shown effective against all types of bacteria. BioCote® silver ion technology has been proven to materially reduce microbes in just 15 minutes, with reductions of up to 99.5% achieved in 2 hours.

Long-lasting
Fortified gloves maintain their anti-microbial performance for the lifetime of the glove; the antimicrobial protection will not wear off, wash off or leach out.

Accredited / Approved
BioCote silver antimicrobial technology is considered food-safe and a suitable addition to food contact articles for use in facilities operating a HACCP based food safety programme.

Silver ion technology
The silver ion technology incorporated into our Fortified nitrile examination gloves negatively affect bacteria that contaminate the surface of the glove through:
Protein damage: Proteins are essential for the biological systems of life, any damage to these components causes the failure of essential functions such as energy production.
Cell membrane damage: By disrupting the microbes membrane, the structural integrity of the microbe is compromised, which can cause essential nutrients to leak out and catastrophic structural failure.
Oxidative damage: Antimicrobials can cause increased levels of reactive oxygen species, which can cause damage to the internal systems of the microbe.
DNA interference: The genetic material of the bacteria is disrupted. Stopping the bacteria being able to replicate by blocking the copying of their genetic material, preventing reproduction.

This information does not reflect the actual duration of protection in the workplace and the differentiation between mixtures and pure chemicals. The chemical resistance has been assessed under laboratory conditions from samples taken from the palm only and relates only to the chemical tested. It can be different if the chemical is used in a mixture.

It is recommended to check that the gloves are suitable for the intended use because the conditions at the workplace may be different from the type test depending on temperature, abrasion and degradation. When used, protection gloves may provide less resistance to the dangerous chemical due to changes in physical properties. Movement, snagging, rubbing, degradation caused by the chemical contact etc. may reduce the actual use time significantly. For corrosive chemicals, degradation can be the most important factor to consider in selection of chemical resistant gloves.

Before usage, inspect the gloves for any defect or imperfections.
