Vytex: An Eco-Friendly Alternative Raw Material

Posted on: Jul 14, 2016

Vytex®, harvested from the Hevea brasiliensis tree, has transformed ordinary latex using a patented process for the production of an ultra low antigenic protein natural rubber latex raw material. The science and applied technology behind its creation is multi-faceted and includes the use of insoluble aluminum hydroxide (Al(OH)3), well known for its protein binding characteristics, in a proprietary blend.

The colloidal and physical properties of this Al(OH)3 treated latex are presented and compared with standard CL60 lattices. Extensive field, laboratory and end-product manufacturer evaluations have been conducted globally leading to multiple United States Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) 510(k) filings for selected products. Please contact us for further details regarding the FDA and 510(k) filings.
