Contamination control

    A revolution in glove technology.

    SHIELDskin XTREME™ brand offers a wide variety of cleanroom gloves solutions for contamination control: latex gloves or nitrile gloves, sterile gloves (GMP Grade A/ GMP Grade B) or non sterile gloves (GMP Grade C/ GMP Grade D), various cleanliness properties (DI, DI+ and DI++), different glove lengths (300, 330, 400 & 600 mm).

    A revolution in glove technology for critical environments that need extra protection


    Gloves cleanliness properties is the first concern in a cleanroom. SHIELDskin XTREME™ cleanroom brand offers a large range of nitrile and Latex gloves coming to “compliance, comfort and protection”.

    How classifications for airborne particulates could relate to gloves? In fact, there are no internationally recognised specification limits that would determine whether a cleanroom glove is ISO class 4 or ISO class 5 compatible. Accordingly, it is left to users to decide what is suitable for their process. Thus, the SHIELDskin XTREME™ cleanroom gloves branding is very different to many of our competitors as it is based on the cleanliness properties linked to the gloves' laundering cycles in deionised water: The more the glove is DI water washed, the lower the level of particles!


    Washing in deionised water provides the essential differentiation in terms of cleanliness properties: SHIELDskin XTREME™brand offers single washed gloves ranked “DI - Basic contamination control” (Particle levels spec. < 3000 per cm² > 0.5µm), triple washed gloves ranked “Di+ - High contamination control” (Particle levels spec. < 1200 per cm² > 0.5µm) and multi-washed gloves ranked “DI++ - Extreme contamination control” (Particle levels spec. < 850 per cm² > 0.5µm).

    Double donning “2 colour system”

    Those engaged in aseptic work may double-glove with two pairs of sterile gloves. Double donning with gloves of different colours (e.g., orange inner glove associated with white outer glove) and different lengths makes easy to detect punctures, pinpricks... With the benefit of the extra-length cuff, it’s also easy to replace the outer glove in the cleanroom. The sterile under-glove will minimize the risk of contamination of the product.

    Bio contamination control

    SHIELDskin XTREME™ gloves offer the highest level of bio contamination control to users of sterile gloves. Specifically developed for sterile production in the pharmaceutical industry and the most critical environments, SHIELDskin™ XTREME sterile Latex and sterile nitrile cleanroom gloves offer the highest level of barrier performance (as defined by AQL) for maximum personal, process and product protection.

    A wide variety of gloves solutions for contamination control

  • SHIELDskin XTREME™ gloves are registered according to the PPE Regulation (EU) 2016/425.
  • Compliance with ISO 374-5:2016 and offer the highest level of bio contamination control.
  • Simple branding concept, DI++/DI+/DI, showing that gloves washing in deionised water provides the essential differentiation in terms of cleanliness properties.
  • Compatible with GMP Grades (GMP Grade A and Grade B for sterile gloves; GMP Grade C and Grade D for non-sterile gloves).

  • 300 mm / 330 mm / 400 mm and 600 mm lengths to meet both the needs of protection against human contamination and the requirements of disinfection of the forearms.
  • Category III PPE gloves:

    Whilst process protection is typically the main concern in cleanroom environments, increasingly users are recognising that there is often an equal need for personal protection of employees from chemicals and biohazards.

    The responsibilities of the employer are outlined in the PPE at Work Directive 89/656/EEC which is the enshrined in local legislation throughout the European Union (EU). To address this need, all SHIELDskin XTREME™ gloves are registered according to the PPE Regulation (EU) 2016/425.
