Japanese condoms manufacturer
The Japanese condoms, manufactured by Sagami Rubber Industries, were launched in Tokyo at $12 for a box of five units, and flew off the shelves in December. Prior to their former world record, the Japanese company was the first to create the color condom, and set a previous thinness standard when they released a 0.0007 in. version in 2005, The Huffington Post reported.
After a decade of research and study on condom project, Sagami held the record for the world’s thinnest condom, but researchers wanted to explore the possibility of formulating an even thinner condom. “Honestly, I don’t know how we can make them thinner than this,” a Sagami researcher told Tokyo Sports, Kotaku.com reported, “but as long as there is a need for thinner goods, we will continue researching 0.009 millimeter and 0.008 millimeter thinness.”
