Vystar to Co-Present on Latex Medical Devices at India Rubber Expo

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - Jan 18, 2017) - Vystar Corp.'s (OTC PINK: VYST) CEO Mr. William Doyle and Member of the Board of Directors and Director of R&D Dr. Ranjit Matthan will join Mr. Sivanyana Moorthy Nadesan of Sibelco Malaysia Sdn Bhd to present "The Manufacture and Markets of Medical Elastomeric Devices-Prospects and Challenges" at the India Rubber Expo (IRE) in Chennai India on January 21, 14:00-18:00, Hall #2.

Medical elastomeric devices cover an expanding range of natural and specialty synthetic rubber-based products, including catheters and tubing, in a market that is expanding at over 10% per annum globally as medical services are expanded in the emerging markets and new techniques invariably require polymer-based components.

"Dr. Matthan and I worked closely with Siva on the initial scale up and development that used Vystar's breakthrough patent processes that remove virtually all proteins and non-rubbers that cause latex allergies from latex to create Vytex® several years ago," said William Doyle. "Through our alliance with our Vytex foam distributor NHS, we have made great strides in incorporating Vytex in bedding in the U.S. We believe manufacturers of medical devices worldwide will eagerly welcome news of our recent advances with Vytex and that, with our support, will allow them to cost effectively produce technically superior, eco-friendly medical devices."

Vystar's Vytex natural rubber latex (NRL) is a game changer for latex in the medical industry. In recent years, the medical industry moved away from latex due to increasing rates of latex allergies from prolonged body contact. Vystar's patented technology that removes 99.85% of allergenic proteins and other non-rubber components from latex, enables the production of a "clean" latex that is odor free and more durable, buoyant, resilient and whiter, while requiring less water and processing during the manufacture of several medical devices. Vytex latex allows surgeons and healthcare professionals to enjoy the superior tactile sensitivity and strength of latex gloves virtually without risk of developing or experiencing allergic reactions. Vytex is also ideal for more than 40,000 other applications such as catheters, medical devices and tubing, condoms, mattresses, pillows, cushions, balloons, footwear, apparel and threads.

The India Rubber Expo, Asia's largest rubber expo, will be spread over an area of 25,000 square meters with around 400 participating companies from India and worldwide and an expected 30,000 visitors. It made its debut in 2001 and has grown to be one of the most anticipated events in the rubber industry today and a valuable platform for growth, exchange and collaboration. Experts and specialists from Japan, China, Malaysia, Korea, Netherlands, Germany and USA come together with those from India to discuss emerging market scenarios, technologies, alliances and various related issues. It is organized by the All India Rubber Industries Association (AIRIA).
