Award-Winner PowerForm® PF-95GY DriTek® EcoTek® Nitrile Exam Glove

A "Green" Glove That Won Gold

SW’s Biodegradable PowerForm® PF-95GY EcoTek® Nitrile Exam Glove with DriTek® Was Announced As the Gold Winner in Hand Protection At the Occupational Health & Safety Industrial Hygiene Awards


Single-use gloves are beneficial when it comes to protecting the skin against chemicals, contamination or infection in the medical profession as well as food handling. Disposable gloves keep everyone safer because they minimize the spread of germs and bacteria. What goes on under disposable gloves is a completely different matter.

The impervious nature of disposable gloves also create an air-tight barrier around the hands which causes the hands to heavily sweat. With nothing to wick perspiration, moisture becomes trapped inside the gloves which can breed bacteria.

Seeking relief, many users tend to change gloves more often but hands softened from sweat are more prone to injury. Repetitive damp then dry then damp again conditions can cause dryness, hand irritation and even pain.

SW® Sustainable Solutions Inc. has developed a number of new technologies that have transformed the single-use glove category – from simply protecting hands to moisturizing comfort, enabling better barrier detection performance to protecting the environment.
