Alliance becomes the first and only rubber band manufacturer to offer antimicrobial rubber bands.

HOT SPRINGS, AR., October 10, 2007 – Alliance Rubber Company is leading the industry by being the only rubber
band manufacturer to offer antimicrobial rubber bands. The Antimicrobial product is both latex free and has the
added benefit of an antimicrobial agent that inhibits the growth of fungi, molds and bacteria that can cause early
deterioration. It is offered in a bright cyan blue color to make it easily identifiable from standard bands. Latex Free
Bands with Antimicrobial Protection are also available in the four most popular selling sizes as well as an assorted
size mix.

“According to the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, 99 000 people die every year from infections
acquired while in hospitals,” said Bonnie Spencer, President of Alliance Rubber Company. “One culprit in the
accidental spread of disease is everyday items used by medical personnel. The Latex Free Bands with Antimicrobial
Protection are designed to inhibit the transfer of disease and will not transport harmful bacteria. Antimicrobial
products are routinely needed in the home, school or office as well.”
