CHESHIRE, England (July 22)—SSL International P.L.C. has expanded its Durex condom line and launched another synthetic "gloving system" as part of the company's 2002 corporate strategy to further develop its primary brand operations. The company is adding three new products to the diverse condom group: Durex Performa, Durex Sensation and Durex Close Fit. Based on extensive research data, a company official said, SSL developed the new offerings to give customers greater variety to choose from and to expand the Durex brand range. The new gloving system, called Biogel Skinsense N Universal, is being introduced by SSL's Regent Medical, Americas division and is designed to work alone as a synthetic latex smooth-surface gloving option or as an underglove in a double-gloving application, according to a Regent Medical spokeswoman. The new offering is aimed to fit with any Biogel Skinsense outer glove combination, she said. But in reality, it fits "as a double glove with any other type of latex or synthetic latex glove," if that's what the user prefers.
