Is 303® Aerospace Protectant™ Effective On Latex Rubber?

This is a particularly appropriate question since latex (natural rubber) quickly degrades when exposed to UV light and ozone.

Yes, 303® Aerospace Protectant™ is the most effective UV screening and anti-ozonant protection for latex rubber.

Clothing used by kayakers and other white-water enthusiasts employ latex rubber seals at the cuffs and collar.  Since 1991 Kokatat, one well known manufacturer, has treated the latex seals on their clothing with 303® Aerospace Protectant™ and have recommended it to their customers, even packing a sample of the product in Kokatat retail packages.

"Fit To Be Tied" is the California company that supplied the latex clothing used in the Batman movies (remember Cat Woman's outfit?).  Also, their black latex backdrops provided the dead flat-black background used in so many Batman movie scenes.  Since 1989, "Fit To Be Tied" has treated all their latex merchandise with 303® Aerospace Protectant™ again for the product's lustrous, non-oily cosmetics and unparalleled UV screening and anti-ozonant properties.
