Body Glove Bio™ and Decade Bio™ Safety Glasses
Constructed of polycarbonate plastic, our new safety glasses show biodegradation in
ongoing ASTM D5511 lab testing.
In the first 469 days, they were found to biodegrade
an average of 25.9% under conditions that simulate a biologically-active landfill.
Actual biodegradation rates vary in landfills according to moisture levels. Present tests
45% solids content are representative of
wetter landfills, such as in the Pacific
Northwest and Southeastern US.
In order to foster and encourage biodegredation, we’ve added a tiny amount of
to our plastic during manufacturing.
Once the glasses are discarded, the
unique chemistry will attract hungry microbes to the surface of the glasses,
and the bacteria
will break them down to humus within a fraction of the time required
to break down untreated plastic.
Don’t worry, unless you live 10 feet underground, with your head stuck in the dirt,
our safety glasses won’t begin to disintegrate
until they are buried in a landfill.
Decade Bio™ and Body Glove Bio™ safety glasses meet the ANSI Z87.1-2010
eyewear standard with tough
polycarbonate frames and lenses
to protect eyes from debris injury.
The glasses provide 99.9% protection from
UVA and UVB radiation
and have a scratch-resistant coating.
