Vystar Director Matthan to Unveil Major Advances in Ultra Low Protein Latices at International Latex Conference

Game-Changing Low-, No-Ammonia and Low-, No-Nitrosamine Formulations May Improve Work Environments, Balloons, Catheters, Condoms

ATLANTA, GA and AKRON, OH--(Marketwired - Aug 6, 2015) - Vystar Corp. (OTC PINK: VYST) Board of Directors Member and Research & Development Director Ranjit K. Matthan, Ph.D., will reveal ongoing developments in the formulation of Ultra Low Protein Latices (ULPL) with reduced or no ammonia and nitrosamines at the International Latex Conference session titled "Advances in Environmentally Friendly Ultra Low Protein Natural Rubber Specialty Latices" at 11:30 a.m., August 12th at the Hilton Akron/Fairlawn in Akron, Ohio. The significant advances in aluminum hydroxide-treated Ultra Low Protein Latices (ULPL) properties and applications are potential game-changers for the issues of volatile organic content and nitrosamines for some critical latex products, such as balloons, catheters, condoms, and other medical devices, as well as enabling cleaner and more sustainable work environments.

"In recent years, the latex industry has sought to reduce or eliminate the need for nitrosamines and ammonia in natural rubber latex to remove any potential health hazards for those with long term exposure in the production of natural rubber latex and in the manufacture of natural rubber latex products in several end use applications," stated Dr. Matthan. "These expanded Vystar product grades make it applicable in a wider range of latex products with the advantage of improved environmental impact through reduced leachables/extractables. These advances finally deliver a simplified, sustainable, totally safe raw material that Vystar can offer for several applications without reservations about nitrosamines."

Manufacturers and interested industry stakeholders desiring to schedule an appointment at the conference to discuss the advances with Dr. Matthan should contact Vystar at (866) 674-5238, x1 or email Info@vytex.com.

Dr. Matthan has worked closely with Joseph John, Director of the Polymer Consultancy Services Ltd, Chennai, India, and Bill Doyle, CEO of Vystar Corp., on the formulations R&D, and these developments will be presented at the conference.

Dr. Matthan has been associated with the development of natural rubber and rubber based industries manufacturing in South Asia since the 1970s and has contributed significantly to South Asia becoming the major player in the global rubber industry. He has advised national and international companies and research bodies as well as many leading private companies engaged in Natural Rubber and Latex production and manufacturing. Through the Bangkok-based Asia Pacific Elastomer Science and Technology (APEST), he has played a key role in creating awareness of the sustainability issues related to natural rubber. He has also been associated with the development and commercial introduction of several eco-friendly natural rubber grades, including Vytex NRL. Dr. Matthan has received two key industry awards, including: the prestigious biennial 2014 Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining, U.K.'s Hancock Medal for his contributions to the development of the environmentally friendly sustainable growth of the global natural rubber industry, and the biennial 2006 KM Philip Award and Gold Medal from the All India Rubber Industries Assoc. for significant contributions toward the development of the Indian Rubber Industry.
