Latex vs. Latex Free?
We have been using latex tubing since 2000. In 2012, at the request of a customer we began offering latex free as well. I always recommend the latex version if latex free is not a concern. The latex has more of a bounce feeling and give than the latex free. Since latex is a main component of rubber, that makes sense. Manufacturer recommends latex over latex free for durability and experience.
