Kent Elastomer Products, Inc. offers synthetic polyisoprene as an artificial latex compound for dip-molded products.
Composed of the same base polymer as natural rubber latex and then polymerized, it does not contain the proteins found in natural rubber latex that can cause allergic reactions. Because of this, it does not require FDA warnings about allergic reactions.
It has better resistance to weather than natural rubber latex, although it does sacrifice some tensile strength, tear resistance and compression set.
While its standard color is natural amber, we have the capability to create a variety of color options.
