Biodegradable Nitrile Powder Free Gloves

Hartalega’s Biodegradable Glove, BDG™, received FDA (510k) since August 2018. It is one of Hartalega’s latest green initiatives in providing an end-of-life solution to nitrile gloves by accelerating the glove biodegradation rate in biologically active landfills and anaerobic digesters. BDG gloves are validated by an independent certified lab, with test results showing a high biodegradation rate of 90% within 490 days (ASTM D5511), and 30% within 202 days (ASTM D5526). Real-time shelf life study results prove that BDG gloves physical property remains unchanged up to 3 years is a testament to its high product quality.

Metal Detectable Nitrile Powder Free Gloves

Hartalega’s FindMe™ Metal Detectable Glove (MDG) is a patented nitrile glove, specially designed with magnetite embedded to prevent product contamination that may incur costly product recalls. FindMe technology helps to detect and discard products containing broken glove pieces before they are deemed safe for release to customers. Designed with strength and comfort, FindMe MDG provides superior protection and dexterity to users. MDG is in compliance with multiple international quality standards and is suitable for various manufacturing industries such as food, pharmaceutical, cosmetics and textile.

Polymer Coated Latex Powder-free Gloves

One of Hartalega’s many landmark achievements was to be the first in the world to apply an online coating of polyurethane on the donning side of latex gloves. This new technology greatly reduced the discomforts associated with conventional latex gloves, such as stickiness, unpleasant odour, poor physical properties. It also improved the health, safety and environmental issues caused by off-line chlorination.

Soft Nitrile Gloves

When Hartalega introduced the world’s first soft Nitrile gloves in 2002, the Industry was prompted to enter a new era. These new gloves were soft and stretchy, just like natural rubber gloves, and resolved the issues of high price, poor comfort and the suboptimal elasticity of conventional Nitrile gloves.

High Stress Retention Nitrile Gloves

In 2005 Hartalega caused another global shift in the market, with the introduction of the world’s first high stress retention Nitrile glove. This new innovation improved elasticity and comfort to an even greater extent; emulating the feel of natural rubber glove without the rising concerns of protein allergen.

This increased retention level, which is a measure of elasticity, meant gloves were able to deliver a continual skin-tight fit during use. This was another advancement from regular nitrile gloves, which could relax and become loose.

The development of high retention gloves also benefited from being outside the Tillotson’s patent at that time. This enabled us to deliver a cost-efficient solution to customers worldwide.

Thin Gauge Nitrile Gloves

In 2005, Hartalega became the first in the world to innovate the thin gauge Nitrile gloves, weighing a mere 4.7 grams. These exhibited an improved tactile sensitivity, yet still maintained a high strength.

Its unrivalled sensitivity, comfort, barrier strength and protein allergen-free attributes triggered hospitals across the USA and Europe, to switch from natural rubber gloves, to the new thin gauge Nitrile gloves.

In 2007, Hartalega surpassed itself once again, with the introduction of a 3.7-gram version of the thin gauge Nitrile gloves. These offered an even greater cost reduction, with a better strength and comfort.
