- Symphony Environmental Technologies has launched the first latex antimicrobial examination glove made with d2p technology.

Symphony is working with Health & Hygiene and Biomax Rubber Industries of Malaysia. The collaboration agreement was signed on 2 February 2018.

Biomax Rubber Industries is one of the fastest growing manufacturers of latex examination gloves in Malaysia and produces more than 1 billion gloves per year, which are sold in more than 40 countries worldwide.

Health & Hygiene is incorporated in the UK and has been working with Symphony for some time on several projects.

The antimicrobial examination gloves will be sold under the newly registered Protector Health & Hygiene brand.

The gloves are the first product launched in what is planned to be a full range of antimicrobial disposable healthcare products including face masks, caps, shoe covers, surgeon gowns, lab coats, isolation gowns, bed and pillow covers and hospital waste bags containing d2p technology.

d2p antimicrobial technology provides complete protection throughout the life of the glove by disrupting and deactivating key molecules within the bacterial cell, preventing cell replication and infection.
