Alliance offers the most popular sizes of rubber bands in a Latex Free alternative.

HOT SPRINGS, AR., October 10, 2007 – Alliance Rubber Company announced that it is helping wage war
against Latex Allergy Reactions that are becoming of increasing concern nationwide with their new LATEX
FREE product lines. While reactions to latex affect a small percentage of Americans, that percentage
appears to be growing at an alarming rate and the results can be lethal.

Schools, medical facilities and business workplace wellness programs have been strong proponents of
efforts to better protect children and adults from latex allergy reactions. As a result, Alliance Rubber
Company, which has manufactured latex free rubber bands for medical packaging and other custom
needs, is making their latex free products more readily available for use by the public.

Latex Free Rubber Bands are now available in the four most popular sizes as well as an assorted size mix
offering. Alliance is manufacturing the product using synthetic rubber to replace the natural rubber latex
and has opted to color the product bright orange to make it easily identifiable from standard tan color
bands. In addition, Alliance states that these bands have a soft stretch that helps prevent CTS (carpal
tunnel syndrome) where repetitive banding is required and this, in turn, helps companies reduce
expensive workers’ compensation claims.
