Latex Free Elastic
Flat knitted elastic can also be manufactured using a synthetic, latex free rubber. Latex free elastic is equally durable to rubber elastic and will maintain its stretch retention. However latex free elastic tends to have a “lazy” return. In other words, it doesn’t snap back from a stretch as fast as latex. Latex free elastic is an option for those with allergic reaction to latex, or for those wanting to reduce their carbon footprint as fewer carcinogens are used in the manufacturing process.
Our medical grade elastic (latex free rubber) is used for applications including knee and back support, leg straps.
