Market leaders Unigloves and BioCote have combined their expertise to create Europe’s first antimicrobial nitrile food approved gloves.

Unigloves new Fortified single use gloves incorporate silver ion technology from BioCote, which has been scientifically proven to destroy 90% of bacteria within just 15 minutes and 99.5% in only two hours.

BioCote is also proven effective against E. coli and Salmonella, antibiotic resistant superbugs like MRSA, VRE, CPE and CRE, invasive fungi species plus H1N1 influenza and the current Aussie flu strain.

Exposure to BioCote treated materials (such as the surface of a Fortified glove) prevents microbial colonisation and renders them non-infectious.

Ionic silver particles are impregnated into the Unigloves synthetic nitrile during the manufacturing process and are dispersed throughout the rubber polymer. Silver is an ideal antimicrobial agent due to its effectiveness against microbes and because it will not wear, wash off or leach out, thus protection lasts for the lifetime of the Fortified glove.

Unigloves Fortified gloves are latex and powder free, chemical resistant and are available in sizes small to X Large.
