Cleanroom.net : In the 34 years that Jenessco has been in business how have your products evolved?
Mr. Essissima :
Jenessco was approached by isolator manufacturers who were dissatisfied with traditional gloves made of; Neoprene, Butyl, and Hypalon.
Ten years ago Jenessco introduced Butadyl® isolator gloves /sleeves to address the ever changing needs of isolator work.
Butadyl® is a modified carboxylated acrylonitrile butadiene polymer. Additional polymers are included to reach our unique formula. The result is a static dissipative glove with increased bending ability, tear strength, and chemical resistance. Our gloves also have proven compatibility with vaporized hydrogen peroxide (VHP).
Cleanroom.net : What is your most popular product?
Mr. Essissima : Butadyl® gloves/sleeves have become our most popular product. Butadyl® is the first and only isolator glove ever tested for cytotoxic chemotherapy drugs. The results showed the uncanny ability of Butadyl® to resist these highly toxic chemicals. We are very proud to thereby participate actively in the fight against cancer. Many users now rely on Butadyl® for increased protection and enhanced productivity.
