All condom manufacturing starts in pretty much the same way; to give the latex stability and strength, chemicals are added to it, and it’s heated (“prevulcanised”). During this process, the chemicals react with the rubber in the latex to make it stronger, more reliable and give it low allergenic potential.
Just to be thorough though, we then test it again.
The latex is then transferred into vast temperature controlled storage tanks.
The formers then pass through an oven to vulcanise the rubber - this completes the chemical reactions and ensures that the condoms have the necessary strength and elasticity.
Finally, the condoms are removed from the formers, washed to remove any water soluble residues, and powdered using pharmacologically safe materials.
