Cold Seal Adhesives | Vytex Natural Rubber Latex

Cold Seal Adhesives

Natural rubber latex (NRL) is the main ingredient in cold seal adhesives. There are many consumer products coated with cold seal adhesives – including envelopes, candy bar wrappers, currency straps, and medical product packsging – and allergies or sensitivities to latex can develop from repeated contact with the natural rubber latex in these adhesives.

Vytex® NRL ultra low protein-based latex adhesives offer dramatic health, safety and environmental benefits to manufacturers and end users. Vytex NRL is an eco-friendly, advanced latex material with virtually undetectable levels of the antigenic proteins that can lead to latex allergies. Vytex NRL applies the principles of green chemistry, is made from a natural raw material, and has no volatile organic compounds (VOCs), toxic chemicals or known or suspected human carcinogens.

Vytex NRL can be easily incorporated into existing manufacturing processes of natural rubber latex and could ultimately help those who suffer from latex allergies and related food allergies.
