KEP Creating Customer Value

Superior solutions and valuable partnerships define our client relationships at KEP. For medical facilities that require non-latex products, we offer many alternate products to fit their needs and give professionals peace of mind. One of these solutions is our Free-Band® Tourniquet, the #1 thermoplastic elastomer brand.

Manufactured from a blend of thermoplastics available exclusively through KEP that exhibits physical properties similar to latex, our tourniquets offer the performance you need while meeting strict biocompatibility standards in the medical industry. Typically, disposable tourniquets are made from calendered rubber.

From different colors to many packaging options including reels, boxes, private labeling and more, we offer a wide variety of options for our customers.
