PROTECT YOUR FUTURE”: ECO-logic and ECO-nomic solution

Increasingly we are seeking greener solutions for the working environment. Therefore it is pleasing to note that with ecoSHIELD™ gloves, you don’t have to make dramatic changes to make the workplace greener. Even better ecoSHIELD™ gloves will most likely cost you no more money than standard gloves. When you take into account the savings on storage space, packaging waste, fewer deliveries etc, it only gets better. Here’s how ecoSHIELD™ can work for you.

ecoSHIELD™: The packaging represents a more environmentally sensitive solution

  • Manufactured from recycled cardboard. The use of recycled cardboard reduces by half CO2 emissions per kg of produced cardboard.
  • Simple design, providing a natural look. The amount of printing on the packaging has been reduced by over 60%. The de-inking stage of the recycling process is the most polluting part.
  • Enhanced design means that 50% more gloves can be packaged in the same volume.
  • We save more than 30% cardboard to pack ecoSHIELD™ gloves. This represents half a tree for every million gloves packed.

ecoSHIELD™: it is also a well thought logistical solution

  • Reduction in storage space.
  • Limited use of surface transport in favour of maritime transport. Elimination of air transport, which is known to be ten times more polluting.
  • Shortening of the supply chain which contributes to a 700kg reduction in CO2 emissions for every 1000 cases delivered.


  • Biocompatibility demonstrated by Modified Buehler and Primary Skin Irritation Tests.
  • Non-detectable levels of chemical allergens using aqueous solution extraction (Phosphate buffered solution) and High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) assay method for quantitative analysis.
  • Free of Thiazoles and Thiurams – these chemical accelerators are excluded from the manufacturing process.
  • Powder free to minimize the potential consequences of powder-borne dermatitis. Residual powder content is 1.0 mg/glove (typical) with a limit of 2.0 mg/glove (ISO 21171:2006 “Medical gloves – Determination of removable surface powder”).
  • Micro - organism and virus resistant – passes highest level of micro - organism resistance per EN374-2: 2003 (Performance level 3, AQL < 0.65 and inspection level G1 according to 1000ml water test) and passes viral penetration test using Phi-X 174 bacteriophage (ISO 16604:2004 Procedure B & ASTM F1671-97b).

Satisfaction Guarantee

The ecoSHIELD™ range is the result of a long study into two unmet needs that today are increasing concerns for the research community and industry generally: ECONOMY and ECOLOGY. SHIELD Scientific was the first in the European market to offer a technical solution to address these two challenges without however compromising quality. They are registered according to Council Directive 89/686/ EEC as Personal Protective Equipment. They have been tested according to the 2003 version of the standards. ecoSHIELD™ is therefore the perfect answer for providing economic and ecological protection in the laboratory.
