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

Kent, OH. . .Kent Elastomer Products, the world's leading manufacturer of dipped natural rubber latex tubing, has added 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, the Vytex product will be an appropriate choice. Vytex NRL includes excellent liquid barrier protection, tactile sensitivity, elasticity, strength and comfort while retaining all of 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, commented," Our standard Natural Rubber Latex formula is suitable for most of our customers but for customers whose application requires a low protein formula, the Vytex NRL will be a valuable addition to our line of Dip Molded products."

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.
