The versatility of polymers is appearing in many ICU (Intensive Care Unit) environments. Synthetic latex from Vita Liquid Polymers is used for re-breathe bags in anaesthesia and breathing apparatus. The chemistry allows the bags to be moulded to a consistent, high quality to ensure reliability in this critical activity.
Breathing bags are disposable or reusable; one of the many challenges of COVID19 has been to re-balance our need for recycling with the more immediate need for hygiene.
We are very proud of our team at Vita Liquid Polymers who are doing everything they can to deliver performance materials for critical products that support the COVID-19 response.
