Ansell Acquires Minority Share in Guayule Latex Manufacturer

One of PEI’s principal suppliers, Ansell Limited, has today purchased a minority share in Yulex Corporation, a manufacturer of biopolymers derived from guayule.

Both companies executed an exclusive agreement for the global development, manufacturing and distribution rights for medical gloves, personal protective equipment gloves, and condoms made of guayule latex.

Extensive research suggests that guayule latex does not produce allergic reactions with natural rubber latex-sensitive individuals.

The acquisition marks an important step in Ansell’s strategy to develop new and innovative protective solutions whilst reducing its usage of rubber tree latex.


For more information on PEI’s range of Ansell medical gloves please contact your local hospital representative. Alternatively, call PEI directly on +353 1 419 6900.
