Delta Zero Glove Quality Verification Program
Glove contamination is a risk to any user or business. To mitigate glove risks, Eagle Protect's proprietary Delta Zero™ third-party testing program verifies Eagle gloves adhere to the highest level of consistent glove safety and performance - the ultimate protection for your business.
The hidden risks of glove contamination result from the largely unregulated production and manufacturing of single-use gloves, with limited and infrequent glove compliance testing on import to the U.S. The Delta Zero™ multi-layered proprietary glove testing is outlined below.

Safe Ingredients

The chemical signature of glove raw material "ingredients" are tested to ensure consistency of manufacturing and to ensure they do not contain potentially toxic chemicals which could impact food and medical safety and glove user health.
Tests: FTIR and Py-GC-MS

Cross-Contamination Potential

Specific glove types can effect the risk of pathogen cross-contamination, due to the surface free energy of their surfaces. The test identifies the cross-contamination pick-up and transfer potential for glove surfaces with respect to both spoilage and pathogenic species in various food and human soils.
Tests: Surface Free Energy Determination

Structural Integrity

Glove type, quality and acceptable quality level (AQL) can affect the microbial contamination, and the possibility of glove particle comtaminants in food. Structural integrity tests verify Eagle gloves exceed medical grade (AQL) requirements, ensuring against contamination through pinhole defects. Quality raw material ingredients guarantee higher strength.
Tests: AQL, Strength and Elongation

Bioburden on both the inside (skin contact) and outside (food and patient contact) of gloves are tested to ensure against fungal and microbial contaminants that could pose a threat to the glove wearer, and the product or person handled. These tests provide a specific profile in respect to how Eagle's gloves are manufactured, to ensure against contamination.
Tests: MPN Microbial Counts and 16S Metagenomic Sequencing

Dermal Compatibility

The gloves are tested for a wide variety of chemicals and toxic exposure that could result in dermal or systemic toxicity, ensuring against skin irritation and occupational skin diseases of the wearer. Our tests detect chemicals or conditions consisting, but not limited to: pesticides, microbial contaminants, endotoxins, glycols, detergents/soaps, oils, other than optimal pH, phthalate plasticizers, bisphenol A (BPA), heavy metals and formaldehyde.
Tests: Mitochondrial and Mitotic Index

Premium Quality, Always

Consistent high quality nitrile disposable gloves are essential to protect the wearer from chemicals and pathogens. They reduce the risk of infection and cross-contamination, providing protection to patients and the consumer. The Eagle Standard, including Delta Zero Quality Verification Program, ensures Eagle gloves meet consistent high quality specifications.

Protection Against Pathogens

Independent testing of glove surfaces has identified E. Coli, Salmonella, Listeria, fungus, mold, feces and many more pathogens capable of causing disease to the glove wearer, and transferring to products and patients. This results from putrid water sources and unhygienic manufacturing standards. Eagle's Delta Zero™ verified gloves mitigate the risks of harmful pathogen contamination.

Say Goodbye to Skin Problems

When gloves irritate your skin, it’s no joke. It’s miserable and takes away from a job you enjoy. This is usually due to poor quality glove ingredients and manufacturing standards. Poor quality gloves can contain toxic chemicals that can cause skin irritation and allergic reactions.

The Delta Zero Program at Eagle Protect: A New Standard in Glove Quality Verification

The Delta Zero program, launched by Eagle Protect PBC, represents a significant evolution in the disposable glove industry. This proprietary quality verification initiative sets new benchmarks for safety, performance, and contamination prevention, making Eagle Protect gloves a preferred choice for those who value superior quality and safety standards.

Understanding the Delta Zero Program

Delta Zero is more than just a testing program; it's an assurance of quality. The Delta Zero verified badge certifies that Eagle gloves have undergone rigorous testing and have surpassed stringent standards, guaranteeing the highest level of safety and performance.

The certification process involves a five-factor safety and performance verification procedure, inclusive of third-party laboratory testing2. This comprehensive process ensures the raw materials used are of superior quality, leading to the production of gloves that are not only durable but also free from contamination.

Why Delta Zero Matters

The Delta Zero program was developed in response to a five-year study revealing the widespread risk of contamination in the disposable glove industry. Contaminated gloves can pose serious health risks, especially in industries like food processing, healthcare, and pharmaceuticals, where gloves often come into direct contact with products or patients. Therefore, the need for a reliable quality verification system was paramount.

By deploying the Delta Zero program, Eagle Protect has set a new industry standard for compliance, raising the bar for glove quality across the board. The program's rigorous testing and verification methods ensure that Eagle gloves perform to the highest levels of safety and performance, significantly reducing the risk of contamination.

Choosing Eagle Protect Gloves

Choosing Eagle Protect gloves means choosing safety, performance, and peace of mind. Each pair of gloves bearing the Delta Zero verified badge has passed a range of stringent tests and adheres to the highest standards of cleanliness and durability.

Eagle's range of Delta Zero verified gloves includes the Eagle FineTOUGH Lightweight Disposable Nitrile Gloves, which are not only durable and contamination-free but also offer textured fingertips for enhanced grip.

By choosing Eagle Protect gloves, you're investing in a product that prioritizes your safety and the safety of those who come into contact with the gloves. This commitment to quality and safety is what sets Eagle Protect apart from other glove manufacturers.

The Impact of Delta Zero on the Glove Industry
