Bio PLA gloves
Bio gloves made of PLA by NatureStar The sustainable alternative for hygiene areas and food processing: organic disposable gloves made from renewable raw materials that can be composted after use. The organic gloves are made of corn starch and are equal to ordinary standard PE gloves in terms of hygiene and comfort. The organic disposable gloves are food safe and therefore suitable for use in food areas. Until now, plastic was often the only material used for gloves and clothing in food areas for hygienic reasons. Now Franz Mensch is setting new standards and has developed an environmentally friendly alternative under the NatureStar brand: the gloves are made of a compostable bio-plastic. The material is called PLA and is a 100% biodegradable copolymer - following EN 13432 for industrial compostability. In terms of their properties, the PLA organic gloves are very similar to conventional PE gloves. They can therefore very well replace the petroleum-based standard gloves and are ideal as hygiene gloves, product protection and to prevent contamination in sensitive areas. The organic disposable gloves made of PLA are odorless, tasteless, water repellent and have a loose fit. They are soft and comfortable to wear. Organic disposable gloves are ideal for those who need disposable gloves due to hygiene regulations, but still value sustainability. Tip: As a perfect complement, you can also purchase a sustainable alternative to ordinary PE aprons from Franz Mensch - the organic disposable aprons made of PLA! The properties of the bio gloves made of PLA at a glance: made from renewable, plant based raw materials compostable in accordance with EN 13432 environmentally friendly PLA, obtained from corn starch food safe tasteless and odorless wearable on both sides water-repellent hygienic product protection non-sterile, comfortable to wear Interesting facts: How the sustainable gloves are made The organic gloves are made from so-called PLA (polylactide). PLA is a bio-plastic that is obtained solely from plants. The starting material is starch from corn plants. For NatureStar's disposable clothing, only industrial corn is used and no food plants. Fermentation produces lactic acids, which are first processed into granules and later into film. The sustainable disposable gloves are made from this film. Since only renewable raw materials are used, the PLA glove is 100% compostable and sustainable. Another plus: During production, up to 60% less CO2 is emitted than with conventional plastic. The gloves made from PLA can either be industrially composted, fermented or recycled. In industrial composting, the material decomposes into CO2 and water. Fermentation produces recyclable bio-gas. In a sorted recycling, the used PLA can be collected again as raw material corn starch, so in the next step new products can be made from bio-plastic. In any case, the CO2 and other material cycles remain closed.

Disposable gloves, protective gloves and work gloves: 1 supplier for everything

Hands are our most important tool and deserve special protection. There is hardly any activity in which our hands and forearms are not exposed to hazards and stresses in the workplace. It's no wonder that hand injuries top the workplace accident statistics. One in three workplace accidents results in an injury to the fingers, hand or forearm. Work gloves are therefore a central component of the PPE Directive (89/686 EEC).

Wearing protective gloves can effectively reduce chemical, mechanical, physical and biological hazards.

Franz Mensch has the right gloves for every application:

  • disposable gloves for hygiene and working with foodstuffs
  • assembly gloves and work gloves for industry, precision mechanics and trade
  • coated and nubbed protective gloves for rough work and assembly
  • cotton gloves and fine industrial gloves for precise work and light protection
  • cut-resistant gloves and protective gloves for work with sharp or pointed objects
  • heat-protective gloves or cold-protective gloves for work in hot or very cold environments
  • chemical protective gloves for laboratories, industry and cleaning work

Work with food: Hygiene gloves from Franz Mensch

Disposable gloves belong in every hygiene concept. Anyone who wants to work hygienically needs disposable gloves. This is especially true in the commercial production and preparation of food. There, high hygiene measures are required (Directive 90/128 EEC, 10/2011/EU). This is mainly due to the division of labor and specialized production processes, the long and multi-stage distribution routes and the large number of people whose health may be threatened if food hygiene fails. Hygienic gloves and consistent hand hygiene are essential. After all, hands are the main carriers of bacteria and germs. Hygienic gloves and disposable gloves are therefore among the most important protective measures. Franz Mensch is one of the leading experts when it comes to disposable gloves. Always look for the glass fork symbol when working with food. Only gloves with this symbol are food safe and approved for direct contact with food.

Gloves for medical purposes

After hygienic hand disinfection, medical examination gloves are among the most important measures for infection control in hospitals, nursing homes and medical practices. In this context, medical gloves must meet various requirements:

  • protection against cleaning agents and disinfectants
  • protection against laboratory chemicals
  • protection against hazardous substances such as cytostatics

In the medical field, gloves reduce the spread of infections. Infection chains caused by blood-borne diseases, e.g. hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV, but also smear infections are stopped in this way.

Medical examination gloves from Franz Mensch (in accordance with the Medical Devices Act):

  • Nitrile gloves Safe Virus
  • Vinyl gloves Ideal Virus
  • Nitrile gloves Safe Light
  • Latex gloves Med Grip
