COLUMBUS, Ohio—Magic-Seal Packaging Products plans to produce the first napkin rings made from Vystar Corp.'s Vytex Natural Rubber Latex to expand its line of product offerings.

The product will be marketed to the restaurant and hospitality industries, according to Magic-Seal.

The napkin ring is just one of several applications Magic-Seal is considering for Vytex, including medical packaging bands commonly used to contain medical drapes, tubing and accessories, along with delicate parts and components used in medical devices.

Vystar, headquartered in Duluth, Ga., is working with manufacturers across a broad range of industries to determine the best ways to use its multi-patented material, which contains significantly reduced levels of antigenic proteins found in natural rubber latex, the company said.
