During the COVID-19 pandemic, disposable rubber gloves have become one of the daily protective measures, and the global demand for rubber gloves has surged; the world's largest top glove company once encountered problems such as urgent production capacity and delayed delivery. On July 30, 2020, Vystar of the United States signed a contract with a Thai manufacturer to produce ultra-low protein Vytex natural rubber latex disposable gloves to prevent workers and consumers from spreading the coronavirus through hand contact.
The new Vytex natural rubber latex disposable gloves use Vystar's patented latex deproteinization process, which has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for medical purposes. This glove has excellent touch and flexibility, tear resistance, puncture resistance, can prevent the spread of dangerous viruses and bacteria, and almost no risk of latex contact allergy.
"By removing 99.85% of all the proteins and non-rubber components that cause allergies, the resulting Vytex latex is ultra-pure and forms stronger molecular bonds. Compared with competitors, the strength of the glove is increased by 50%, but the thickness It has shrunk by 50%," said Vystar CEO Steve Rotman (Steve Rotman). "In addition to helping prevent infectious viruses such as coronavirus and influenza from spreading to the surface, important workers in catering services and work that require manual contact with others, chemicals, fragile or small parts and materials , Will help improve tactile sensitivity and flexibility, as well as additional protection against leaks, punctures and tears."
The results of the joint market survey show that the global disposable glove market reached 6.9 billion U.S. dollars in 2019 and may receive 18.9 billion U.S. dollars by 2027. The global outbreak of the new crown pneumonia epidemic has led people to become more aware of hygiene and prevention. The demand for rubber gloves has seen unprecedented growth. The pharmaceutical industry, chemistry, healthcare, oil, natural gas and other fields are generally promoting the growth of the rubber glove market.
Vytex is completely biodegradable and has a sustainable source. This is a major advantage for millions of workers using dozens of pairs of gloves every day.
