Vystar® Corporation Receives its Third US Patent and First Chinese Patent for Vytex® Natural Rubber Latex

ATLANTA, Jan. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Vystar Corporation (OTCBB: VYST), the exclusive creator of Vytex® Natural Rubber Latex (NRL), has received its third US and first Chinese patent for its all-natural raw material. The company now has a total of five issued patents in the US and abroad that relate to Vytex NRL, with more than a dozen pending.

The new US patent expands the claims beyond just reducing proteins and recognizes that the process also reduces the level of non-rubber components in Vytex NRL, creating a completely different natural rubber latex. In October 2010, ASTM approved a new category of latex based upon a maximum non-rubber content of 0.5%, which is significantly lower than the maximum of 2.0% allowed in the other categories of latex. Vytex NRL is the first and only commercially available NRL that qualifies for this new category.  Utilizing these criteria, Vytex NRL is cleaner, allowing manufacturers to utilize more cost-effective manufacturing processes and make better end products.  Dipped products use less costly and adverse leaching processes and dyes to produce naturally whiter and more translucent end products such as foams and adhesives. Vytex NRL can save manufacturers time and money in their production lines while also improving thousands of different latex end products such as foams and adhesives.

William R. Doyle, President and CEO of Vystar Corporation said, "Natural rubber latex is a $4.6 billion global market, with little product differentiation. Vytex NRL is really the first fully commercialized, branded latex raw material that offers manufacturers a truly better NRL alternative by saving natural resources in the manufacturing process and in creating distinctively more attractive and desirable end products. These two new patents not only strengthen Vystar's intellectual property rights worldwide, but they are an acknowledgement of the unique attributes of Vytex NRL. This new US patent approval expands protection beyond the process used to make Vytex NRL to the unique end composition of Vytex NRL which leads to the attributes of the end products that can be made only with Vytex NRL."

The recently issued Chinese patent, recognizes the validity of Vystar's second US Patent, which protects the process of producing Vytex NRL, and therefore extends patent protection to China.

Travis Honeycutt, Vystar's founder and technical advisor said, "The Chinese patent is particularly exciting. It demonstrates the importance of Vytex NRL in Southeast Asia and protects our intellectual property rights in that region.  China is one of the leading producers of products made with natural rubber latex and this protection of Vytex NRL's novel process is important for Vystar's growth."
