About latex chlorination -
All our clothing is chlorinated for you

(unless you prefer not - just tell us)

Just ASK and we'll send you a FREE SAMPLE (small but perfectly smooth!)

Chlorination makes the latex permanently smooth and soft.      This means:

in most cases you won't need talc or lube to get into it


  • you can get dressed quickly and with no fuss or mess.
  • the latex won't stick to itself once it is clean and dry again.
  • you can wear street clothing over chlorinated latex without it dragging
  • you can wear it in bed for example, without it catching
  • you can wear layer upon layer if you wish, with each sliding perfectly over the other
  • the smell and noise are reduced
  • it is more resistant to staining
  • it may have improved shine
  • many allergy sufferers report NO reaction to chlorinated latex
Chlorination doesn't:
  • guarantee to make rough latex smooth
  • restore surface shine worn away from e.g. knees
  • remove or stop staining totally
  • work on garments covered with silicone or other polishes
  • change the colour of your latex
After Chlorination you treat the garment just like any other. You can:
  • Wash & dry as before
  • Protect from light, heat and sharp edges
  • Polish if you like the outer surface. Remember any silicone transferring to the inside will block the effect of chlorination until you clean it off
  • Repair as usual but take extra care to roughen the surfaces first

We chlorinate almost ALL our Catalyst Latex garments before we send them to you, unless you ask us not to (some exceptions apply like accessories)

We will chlorinate YOUR existing garments for you, provided they are clean, for a fee

We provide FULL instructions for you - at your own risk - to try chlorination yourself

How cool is that?!!! If you have any questions or want to order a sample - click HERE to contact us.


Latex Allergy

Customers that have latex allergies have found that they do not react to Chlorinated latex. While this is excellent news we we would advise anyone with a latex allergy to order a sample of chlorinated latex so that they can test this themselves. We would advise caution when testing for any such allergic reaction and ensure that someone is with you for safety.

Below is a review from one of our customers


"Hi There

Can I just say that after ordering some of your great outfits I am happy no delighted to advise you that I am able to wear your Chlorinated items,

I am very allergic to latex in the way that I have to carry Epi pen with me every day. If I do come into contact to the skin and inhale the particles I would certainly suffer anaphylactic reaction.

13 years ago I found out that I was allergic to latex ..... so bad that I could not even take to my children to friends party's due to that fact that just being in a room filled with a few balloons could give me an allergic reaction. So Bad that this attacks my airways, my skin gets red in colour and swollen, my lips triple in size

Not too mention my sex life was in turmoil. I used to love to ware sexy outfits and enjoy erotic nights with my husband. But now I have some outfits that have been fully Chlorinated by you after successfully sampling some of your swatches as u advised by my own risk.............

I would like !!! no WE would like to thank you for the fantastic outfits I can now enjoy and ware its great to know I can ware these and not worry about my any one who has an allergy to latex I can can say 100% once these out fits have been Chlorinated I can ware them... Try them I did and I'm looking for another outfit as we speak xxxxx

Yours Thankfully

A latex allergy sufferer and customer

Q&A and some price guidance

Q: What does it do?

A: It’s a wet process that micro-smoothes the surface of latex

Q: What are the features?

A: You won’t need talc or lube in most cases to get the garment on

And the outside will also be smooth

Q: So what are the benefits?

A: Quicker, cleaner dressing. No white talc perspiration dribbles

Reduced noise and smell from the latex

Will not self-stick when dried after cleaning, better storage

Lower friction reduces external wear and enhances ‘layering’

Improved resistance to staining

Vast decrease in allergenic behaviour

Q: And the downsides?

A: If repairs are needed, chlorinated latex must be roughened before gluing

The smell is reduced (see also Benefits!)

Q: How much does it cost?

A: £20 for a batch. Discount for trade and on multi-batch orders.  Postage extra, at cost.

Q: OK, so what’s a Batch?

A: The process is done using a 10litre working solution of active chlorine

A batch is the amount that will fit in the tank with space for the solution to flow

and that can be turned inside out within 30 seconds halfway through the process.

Q: So what’s in a batch then?

A: Typically a catsuit with feet and gloves, and a separate hood.

Or jeans and a shirt, or 5 pairs of gloves

It relates to the amount of latex/surface area – and the time involved turning it inside out

Q: Is it guaranteed?

A: No! But we wouldn’t be offering it unless we were 99% confident!

Q: What can go wrong?

A: If the garment has oily or silicone areas, these will not respond properly to chlorination.

If the garment is very old, black latex can discolour slightly to charcoal grey

Q: What DOESN’T chlorination do?

A: It doesn’t remove stains or restore the shine to worn out areas.

Old latex that’s started melting/going sticky will not be restored

Q: So what do I need to do now?

A: Email us a list of what you want ‘doing’ and we’ll return with a price

If you’re happy, clean, dry and dust your items with talc.  

Please make sure your gear is clean and free of grease, lube, silicone etc.

Refer to manufacturers’ instructions or consult the many on-line user groups. ;)

For shipping to us it's fine to use talc on your clean latex - for the very last time!

Pack securely with your details inside and for UK customers please enclose payment (removes bank/paypal costs)

Customers outside UK should not have to pay customs charges if you contact us for advice first.

We usually get the work done and posted back within 2 days of receiving.
