Vytex® Natural Rubber Latex (NRL) is easily introduced into any manufacturing environment currently using traditional NRL or synthetic substitutes.
In most cases, little to no modification to the current manufacturing process is required. Manufacturers can simply substitute Vytex NRL for the NRL or synthetic product they were using previously. In some cases, manufacturers using Vytex NRL have been able to achieve increased efficiency by reducing processes such as excessive washing and leaching. This can significantly reduce manufacturer water and energy consumption thus reducing their overall environmental impact.
Vytex NRL adds very little to the cost of manufacturing. However, because it contains virtually zero allergy-causing proteins and retains the physical properties of natural rubber latex, products manufactured with Vytex NRL can command a premium price compared to those made of traditional natural rubber latex.
