With our expertise on correct product selection and use, together with providing you an improved quality of products, we can help reduce the environmental impact of your business.
A reduction in product failure and waste can be achieved by using better quality products - lowering your associated disposal costs, thereby improving the environmental impact of your business. When procuring your disposable gloves and protective clothing, it is essential to factor in the overall costs to your business.
Glove strength is highly proportional to the quality and choice of raw materials. Thicker gloves are often believed to be more durable and cost effective, however, the opposite can be true if manufactured from cheap raw materials which compromise glove strength and flexibility, causing an increase in glove failure.
The type of glove is also directly related to the rate of punctures, rips, and tears. Vinyl gloves have a poor resistance to stretch and elongation leading to poorer fitting gloves with more holes occurring during use, subsequently increasing waste.
By switching our customers from vinyl gloves to our Light & Tough nitrile gloves, we saved over 5000 tons of waste last year! Contact Us to find out how we can help your business.
