AT-10 is a synthetic resin, mainly used in the manufacture of ultra-thin condoms. It has a higher strength in thinner sheets than other materials such as natural latex.

AT-10 is not stretchable, but does cling to skin to form a "wrap". It is well suited to condom manufacture as it:

  • can be made into very thin sheets, circa 15 micrometres thick
  • is hypoallergenic so does not have the potential to cause allergic reactions on contact with skin like natural latex
  • allows body heat to pass through quickly
  • is strong at relatively thin levels
  • is non-porous
  • does not degrade when exposed to common oils, such as oil based lubricants
