Premium Quality, Always

Consistent high quality nitrile disposable gloves are essential to protect the wearer from chemicals and pathogens. They reduce the risk of infection and cross-contamination, providing protection to patients and the consumer. The Eagle Standard, including Delta Zero™ quality verification program, ensures Eagle gloves meet consistent high quality specifications.

Say Goodbye to Skin Problems

When gloves irritate your skin, it’s no joke. It’s miserable and takes away from a job you enjoy. This is usually due to poor quality glove ingredients and manufacturing standards. Poor quality gloves can contain toxic chemicals that can cause skin irritation and allergic reactions.

Eagle gloves offer superior barrier protection for wearers prone to contact dermatitis, skin allergies and irritation - due to premium ingredients and manufacturing standards.

Protection Against Pathogens

Independent testing of glove surfaces has indentified E. Coli, Salmonella, Listeria, fungus, mold, feces and many more pathogens capable of causing disease to the glove wearer, and transferring to products and patients. This results from putrid water sources and unhygienic manufacturing standards. Eagle's Delta Zero™ verified gloves mitigate the risks of harmful pathogen contamination.

Delta Zero: The 5 Tests

The hidden risks of glove contamination result from the largely unregulated production and manufacturing of single-use gloves, with limited and infrequent glove compliance testing on import to the U.S. The Delta Zero™ multi-layered proprietary glove testing is outlined below.

Safe Ingredients

The chemical signature of glove's raw material “ingredients” are tested to ensure consistency of manufacturing and that they do not contain potentially toxic chemicals which could impact food and medical safety and glove user health.

Test: FTIR and Py-GC-MS

Cross-Contamination Potential

Specific glove types can affect the risk of pathogen cross-contamination due to the surface free energy of glove surfaces. This test identifies the cross-contamination pick-up and transfer potential for glove surfaces with respect to both spoilage and pathogenic species in various food and human soils.

Test: Surface Free Energy Determination

Structural Integrity

Glove type, quality and acceptable quality level (AQL) can affect glove cross-contamination and the possibility of glove particle contaminants in food. Structural integrity tests verify Eagle gloves exceed medical grade AQL requirements, ensuring against contamination through pinhole defects. Quality raw material ingredients ensure higher strength and resistance to puncture.

Tests: AQL, Strength & Elongation, Puncture Resistance

Cleanliness

Bioburden on both the inside (skin contact) and outside (food and patient contact) of gloves are tested to ensure against fungal and microbial contaminants that could pose a threat to the product, person handled or the glove wearer. These tests provide a specific profile in respect to how our gloves are manufactured, to ensure against contamination.

Test: Microbial Counts and Metagenomic Analysis

Dermal Compatibility

The gloves are tested for a wide variety of chemicals and toxic exposure that could result in skin irritation and occupational skin diseases of the glove wearer. Our tests detect chemicals or conditions consisting, but is not limited to: pesticides, microbial contaminants, endotoxins, glycols, detergents/soaps, oils, other than optimal pH, phthalate plasticizers, bisphenol A (BPA), heavy metals and formaldehyde.

Test: Mitochondrial Function and Mitotic Index
