This new condoms has great skin feeling for consumers, which gain more and more market now, and which will replace normal latex material condom easily in the near future. Sagami Rubber Industries was the first condoms manufacturer that produced a condom with thickness of just 0.02 mm. To give you a better impression how thin this really is, I’ll compare it to the avarage thickness of a human hair which is 0.06mm. So 0.02 mm is only a third of the thickness of a human hair. It is also more than twice as thin as the standard latex ultra-thin condom (eg. Durex Sensi-Thin, which is 0.048 mm). As you may presume Sagami Rubber is a Japanese condoms manufacturer with long history – the company was established in 1934. This extremely thin condom is made of polyurethane – type of a plastic, introduced in the market in the 1990s. Besides being thinner, condoms made of polyurethane have some other benefits as well: polyurethane is hypoallergenic material, meaning people suffering from latex allergies can safely use these condoms polyurethane condoms are both effective in preventing pregnancy and preventing many STDs they transmit heat better they are strong as latex, if not even stronger Sagami Original is odorless polyurethane is oil resistant, so you can use oil lubricants with Sagami Original and other polyurethane condoms.
