Antimicrobial Disposable Vinyl Gloves, DEHP Free
OmniShield Antimicrobial Disposable Vinyl Gloves are the next generation of food service technology greatly reducing the risk of cross contamination and inhibiting bacterial growth.
What makes OmniShield Antimicrobial Disposable Vinyl Gloves so significant?
Most antimicrobial products are treated with a compound after production that fights bacterial growth. Omni has combined their high quality glove manufacture with Anti-Microbial Solutions technology in the compounding stage before molding so that the benefit penetrates throughout the finished products.
Why is it important to mix in the anticrobial solution before molding the Vinyl Gloves and not apply it after?
Application of antimicrobial solutions after a product is manufacture can be wiped off through use and become ineffective. But, with the mixture penetrating the material, OmniShield food service gloves retain the bacteria inhibiting process throughout wear time.
OmniShield Antimicrobial Disposable Vinyl Gloves Features:
- High quality disposable vinyl
- Four standard sizes available
- Permeating EPA approved anti-microbial solution
- Excellent for food service
- DOP and DEHP free
- Powder free
How the AMS Antimicrobial Glove technology works
Antimicrobial is a broad term that refers to any compound, including antibiotics, sanitizers, disinfectants, a number of food preservatives and other substances that act to inhibit the growth of microorganisms. The AMS Technology inhibits bacterial growth by using an electro-chemical mode of action to penetrate and disrupt their cells walls. When the cell walls are penetrated, leakage of metabolites occurs and other cell functions are disabled, thereby preventing the microorganism from functioning or reproducing. In terms of the effect against fungi, the antifungal agent depolarizes the membrane electro-potential and inhibits the cell from splitting under mitosis.
Another component of AMS is the introduction of a naturally occurring food grade substance found in nature, thus providing a "green" technology that is so popular today. This interaction between the AMS EPA Registered natural ingredients will hold microbes in place while the antimicrobial agent inhibits the microorganism.
