GloDea, Jacksonville, Fla., introduced antimicrobial AM Gloves for the foodservice industry.

The GloDea Gloves are sanitized and protected by d2p technology (designed to protect), which integrates an antimicrobial active into plastics to become an essential part of the finished product. It provides a broad spectrum of antimicrobial performance against a wide range of microorganisms, including MRSA, E. coli, Salmonella, Listeria, Pseudomonas, Candida, Corynebacterium, Klebsiella, etc.

d2p is present both inside and outside the glove, as it is integrated into the product during the manufacturing process. d2p attacks and breaks the microorganism cell membrane and penetrates the microorganism. d2p also disrupts membrane transport by blocking the proton pump that energizes the transport mechanism. d2p remains active for the full life cycle of the glove.
