KENT, Ohio (Aug. 25, 2010)—Tubing products manufacturer Kent Elastomer Products Inc. has added Vystar Corp.'s Vytex Natural Rubber Latex to its dip molded product line.
The company is adding Vytex for customers who prefer low-protein products but still want to retain the benefits of natural rubber latex, the Kent-based firm said.
Kent Elastomers' standard natural rubber latex formula is generally suitable for most customers, said Cindy Harry, director of sales and marketing for the company. However, for those requiring a low protein formula, “Vytex NRL will be a valuable addition to our line of dip molded products,” she said.
Vytex NRL offers excellent barrier protection, tactile sensitivity, elasticity strength and comfort while retaining the positive characteristics of natural rubber latex, Vystar said.
