Latex

latex tubingCenturies ago the people of South America used latex, the sap-like extract from the rubber tree (Hevea brasiliensis), to make rubber balls. They played a game with the balls and later used latex in shoes and shields. Today latex is produced commercially and is the source for products such as surgical gloves, balloons, exercise equipment, and, of course, tubing.

Latex natural rubber tubing has been used extensively in the health care industry for many years, both for fluid transfer and as tourniquets. Its flexibility and ability to withstand repeated stretching led to its expansion into the food, toy, and sporting goods fields.

NewAge Industries’ latex tubing retains its memory after repeated bending, elongation, or pulsating forces. It withstands repeated sterilization with steam, ethylene oxide, or gamma radiation. There are no added plasticizers, coagulants, or fillers to migrate and contaminate the stream or cause tube hardening.

Allergies to natural latex are common these days, and alternatives exist. Tubing made from synthetic latex is available and is preferred in some applications, as it is lighter in color (more translucent) than natural latex rubber.
