For the first time, UV Flu Technologies (OTCBB: UVFT) and Vystar Corporation’s (OTCBB: VYST) shared an international stage with the world’s most innovative companies at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) as the two companies showcased “The Perfect Sleep Environment” with Vystar’s Vytex® Natural Rubber Latex (NRL) pillow and UVFT’s UV-based, microbe-, spore- and germ-killing air purification system. The technologies attracted the attention of numerous new manufacturers and suppliers that have been actively seeking these solutions. Vystar and UVFT are now further exploring multiple business opportunities worldwide and have moved closer to finalizing multi-million dollar contracts with potential partners, manufacturers, suppliers and distributors.
“The global business contacts and opportunities generated at CES for both of our companies were excellent and far exceeded any previous efforts,” stated Michael Ross, UVFT CEO. “We look forward to sharing details as contracts are finalized.”
UV Flu’s UV300®, which will be available to consumers by yearend 2014, will change lives by providing relief for sufferers of chronic respiratory inflammation, infections, asthma and allergies due to airborne sources. The prototype, known currently as UV-300, features new ultra-fine particulate matter filters, plus sensors and electronics that UVFT is still keeping under wraps, in addition to containing the only pure UV-based, FDA-cleared, class II medical device technology used in UVFT’s RXAir™ purification systems designed for hospitals and medical facilities. Unlike other air purification systems that simply circulate air over trapped particulate matter and recirculate the microbes, spores in the outflow, UVFT’s patented ViraTech™ UV technology kills organic matter entering the purifier chamber and traps it, as well as trapping inorganic matter. The result is totally pure, hygienic fresh air to help maintain a healthy environment.
“The UV300 will have significant benefits for asthma and allergy sufferers and those subject to environments high in particulate matter,” explained Ross. “In addition to utilizing ultraviolet (UV) light, which kills more than 99% of airborne bacteria and viruses with every pass, the new UV-300 traps minute pollen, fungi, spores and other airborne particulate matter and reduces odors from smoke, pets and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that often cause irritation, inflammation and/or immune system reactions.”
Everyone deserves a good night’s sleep. UVFT and Vystar, owner of Vytex NRL a multi-patented, all-natural raw material that contains significantly reduced levels of non-rubber particles and proteins found in natural rubber latex, are making sure you will sleep better and rest more comfortably by providing the ideal sleep environment from the air you breathe to the pillow you rest on.
Vystar’s SleepHealth pillow’s tight cell structure conforms to body contours, yet allows greater air flow to avoid heat and moisture build up, resist mildew, odors and dust mites while maintaining its resilience and durability over time. The all natural NRL foam employs patented processes to remove the non-rubber particles and allergen-causing latex proteins to create a superior eco-friendly, hypo-allergenic product that is whiter, lighter weight and free of the off-gassing common among competitors’ memory foam products. Vystar’s foam manufacturing partners, Guatemalan-based Islatex and GrupoAgroindustrialOccidente, developed a unique foam manufacturing process that provides consumers with products that have the most desirable attributes, such as superior longevity, temperature and humidity regulation, ventilation, allergy-friendly, non-toxic, and luxurious comfort.
“Many people, even those without diagnosed allergies, wake up in the morning with congestion, often as a result of exposure to irritants and allergens in both the air and their non-Vytex based bedding products, yet have noted that this congestion does not occur in test trials using our foam products while also remaining cooler though the night,” noted Vystar CEO William Doyle. “The perfect sleep environment created with UVFT’s air purification system and our Vytex NRL foam pillows will be further enhanced with the Vytex mattress products that we expect to launch in the coming months. Rather than fighting off germs, allergens and other irritants, your body can rest, so you wake up breathing freely and fully refreshed.”
“Most of us spend more than eight hours a day in our bedrooms, so creating the perfect sleep environment is a great first step for improving our physical and mental health,” remarked Ross. “We’re happy to extend that far beyond the bedroom with the UVFT line of air purifiers that includes our medical-grade RXAir products, that are ideally suited for improving air quality in a wide variety of environments such as offices, healthcare facilities, schools, and industrial facilities.”
Doyle added, “Many industries have been struggling to develop a product that has the natural, hypo-allergenic durability and resilience of our Vytex NRL foam product line. We expect that in the not too distant future it will be used in everything from residential and office furniture to automobiles, boats and theaters and we will all breathe easier and rest more comfortably while benefiting from Vytex foam’s smaller carbon footprint.”
