Vytex Featured on New To The Street

Posted on: Apr 30, 2017

Anchor Ken Evseroff welcomes Vystar Corporation’s (OTC PINK: VYST) CEO Bill Doyle back to introduce new viewers to Vystar’s ongoing efforts to provide a superior latex that can improve thousands of products, including mattresses and pillows for a better night’s rest.

“We appreciate the opportunity to discuss in more detail how Vystar’s Vytex solves some problems for the latex and plastic materials industries,” states Bill Doyle, CEO of Vystar. He further states,”Vytex is a sustainable, natural, latex material from which we remove all protein virtually, resulting in an odor free, stronger and more resilient material that doesn’t have any petrochemical off-gassing and also reduces the risk of experiencing or developing latex allergies. We are working with multiple industries to replace latex, memory foam and plastics with Vytex in products such as electrical gloves, medical gloves, balloons, foam for mattresses, pillows, cushions and padding; elastic threads for undergarments and sportswear; and industrial adhesives. It’s a multi-billion dollar raw materials opportunity.”

Vytex, the Cleaner-Better Latex

Posted on: Mar 22, 2017

Institutional Analyst Inc. has initiated coverage of Vystar Corp., (VYST), with a report in “Biotech Stock Review” detailing the market opportunity for Vystar as the exclusive creator and licensor of breakthrough patented processes that remove virtually all proteins and non-rubbers that cause latex allergies and odor from latex to create Vytex ® natural rubber latex (NRL) that can be used in over 40,000 products.

“New to the Street” host Ken Evseroff interviews Vystar CEO Bill Doyle, NHS and Rotmans Furniture CEO Steve Rotman and Hedge Fund Manager and Medical Doctor Joseph Allegra. They explore how Vytex is replacing materials that are non-biodegradable, have harmful off gassing, cause allergies or have noxious smells in 40,000 different products with a superior, yet budget-friendly alternative to traditional latex, memory foam, and other petrochemical-based materials. The segment aired on ION TV in New York on 3/20.

Deproteinized Natural Rubber Latex

Posted on: Sep 2, 2016

Natural Rubber Latex (NRL) is a constant and preferred raw material for latex end product manufacturers around the globe with its ready availability, ease of processing, and the excellent performance of latex end products in critical environments. However, the presence of non- rubbers, especially certain allergenic proteins, has inhibited its continued use in several existing products and entry into new applications.

The introduction of Vytex, which uses specially treated process, to target the surface and bound proteins of both the extractable (EP) and Rubber Bound (AP) proteins has met success with a variety of latex product end users, as the superior performance attributes of these Deproteinized Natural Rubber Latex (DPNRL) materials becomes better characterized. These improvements extend beyond the ultra low allergenicity of the DPNRL and include improved color, absence of rubber odor, and improved physicochemical attributes. Improved air and helium retentions results are reported. The potential to extend applications into other non-conventional areas other than latex end products is discussed.

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.

Further Development of Vytex® Leads to Strong Niche Market Advances

Posted on: Jul 8, 2016

A major responsibility of manufacturing and/or marketing personnel is finding innovative techniques to differentiate their products vs. competition while driving down costs. Vytex was created to lessen the protein load in natural rubber latex for medical products, but has shown unique competitive advantages due to its versatility as a raw material regardless of end product application. The result of that extensive research led to, not only a nearly total protein reduction, but an overall 75% drop in non-rubber content, as noted by a recent ASTM categorization, which can now be targeted to all product manufacturers using NRL as a raw material. The aluminum hydroxide-treated multiple-patented process has shown an affinity for allowing a lower cost of production in various global industries and exhibits distinct improvements in product characteristics when compared to its untreated sibling, traditional natural rubber latex. While certain mainstream producers have already gravitated to the aluminum hydroxide-treated NRL, recently niche product producers have shown a keen interest in specific pre-compounded, further enhanced, specialty versions of aluminum hydroxide-treated NRL. This paper is designed to highlight the strong positive effects that such advances can have on future economic growth, the environment as we learn to use less toxic chemicals, and preservation of natural resources currently used to “clean” NRL.

Balancing Material Acquisition and Production Costs

Posted on: Jul 1, 2016

The true cost of manufacturing is measured as the sum of the total costs throughout the production cycle. Sometimes more can be less. Water and energy stress caused by the growing global population is expected to reach historic proportions, driving supply down and costs up, and directly affecting business operations according to a recent United Nations report.
