Adhesive Applications | Vytex Natural Rubber Latex

Adhesive Applications

Available in HA (high ammonia) and LA (low ammonia) grades; Vytex® Natural Rubber Latex (NRL) provides a wide variety of adhesive applications. Some of these applications include:

  • Food packaging
  • Medical packaging
  • Specialty papers
  • Shirt and napkin bands
  • Currency straps
  • Envelopes
  • Bandage wraps
  • Candy wrappers

The process behind Vytex NRL applies the principles of green chemistry to develop a “safer latex” with significantly reduced levels of antigenic proteins, but does not compromise the desirable properties of natural rubber latex, such as stability, coupoundability and coating.

Vytex NRL is an eco-friendly, advanced latex material with virtually undetectable levels of the antigenic proteins that can lead to latex allergies.

Standard natural rubber latex (NRL) contains 13 known allergens, and consumer groups have called for warning labels on packages that contain NRL. We understand the importance of offering an alternative solution for those who suffer from allergies or sensitivities to latex and related food allergies.

If you or someone you know suffers from allergies or sensitivities related to latex found in adhesive applications, and would like to learn more about Vytex NRL’s role in adhesives, please contact us.
