American BioRubber has been the leader in pioneering guayule materials for over two decades. Our portfolio of patents, know-how, and trade secrets is second to none and in today’s market more valuable than ever before.
American BioRubber was the first company to extract, purify, compound, and produce medical grade products, achieving certification to strict FDAs 510k requirements. We went on to develop a vast array of elastomeric compounds, materials, wet-stick adhesives, and advanced products all based on guayule. In 2011 the company started a material development program to use guayule as a replacement for neoprene in foam in wetsuits with Patagonia Clothing company. After eight months of trails and testing Patagonia launched the world’s first plant-based wetsuit called the Yulex Wetsuit.
