SHOWA’s gloves with Eco Best Technology (EBT) are engineered for
accelerated biodegradation in biologically active landfills. Independent
certified laboratories performing long-term landfill biodegradation
testing according to ASTM D5526-12 reported that Showa’s gloves with
EBT achieved 82.0% biodegradation in only 386 days, while gloves
without EBT achieved only 1.9% biodegradation over the same period of
time. These results may not be indicative of future biodegradation.
