Z10 back material

I've searched all over the website and haven't found a proper place to enquire about this so I've decided to ask here and see what happens..


I am wondering what material the Z10's backing is made of. I read somewhere that it was a rubber backing. 

This may seem trivial to many users but my Mother suffers from an extremely severe LATEX allergy and if she even so much as smells rubber (latex) she will go into an anaphylactic shock and can die as a result of this.


Thus due to this issue it is incredibly essential that I find out what the material on the back of the phone is made of before I purchase it and find out the hard way. I'd rather not have a new phone and still have a mother.


Believe me when I say I am not over exaggerating in the slightest about the severity of my predicament. If someone could just confirm that it's a silicon backing I would me most grateful.

I think this question needs answering a little attention!
