The versatile polyisoprene material in a precisely controlled environment in solid and latex forms, without employing organic solvents. The latex version it supplies is able to be processed by manufacturers on production lines designed for natural rubber when process parameters have been adapted. Used in gloves, the latex not only provides protection against reactions to rubber proteins, but also can enhance comfort and minimize hand fatigue.
