Kent Elastomer Adds Vytex® Low Protein Natural Rubber Latex to Product Offering

Published on 2010-08-26. Author : SpecialChem

KENT, OH -- Kent Elastomer Products, the world's leading manufacturer of dipped natural rubber latex tubing, announced that it has added Vystar® Corporation's Vytex® Low Protein Natural Rubber Latex to its Dip Molded product line.

For those customers who require a very low protein product but still wish to retain the benefits associated with Natural Rubber Latex, Vytex NRL will be an appropriate choice. Vytex NRL includes excellent liquid barrier protection, tactile sensitivity, elasticity, strength and comfort all while retaining the positive characteristics of natural rubber latex. The product has virtually undetectable levels of the antigenic proteins as measured by today's standard protein tests.

Cindy Harry, Director of Sales and Marketing of Kent Elastomer Products, stated, "Our standard Natural Rubber Latex formula is suitable for most of our customers, but for customers whose application requires a low protein formula, Vytex NRL will be a valuable addition to our line of Dip Molded products."

William Doyle, President and CEO of Vystar Corporation, said, "We have been working with Kent Elastomer Products through several trials testing Vytex NRL. Based on their success, we are pleased that they have chosen to incorporate Vytex NRL into their extensive Dip Molded product line. Kent's custom-engineered OEM components, used by many of the world's leading manufacturers, are known for their high quality." Vytex Natural Rubber Latex (NRL) is an eco-friendly natural rubber latex material. The product is produced through a novel, multi-patented process owned by Vystar Corporation.
