NATLEX is sourced from natural latex, a milky white liquid that is collected by cutting thin strips in the bark of the Hevea Brasiliensis rubber tree.

OVERVIEW

Natural latex is used extensively in many applications and products, either alone or in combination with other materials. In most of its useful forms, it has a large stretch ratio, excellent elasticity and tensile strength, and is extremely waterproof.

NATLEX is sourced from natural latex, a milky white liquid that is collected by cutting thin strips in the bark of the Hevea Brasiliensis rubber tree.

How does it work ?

Natural latex is placed into a centrifuge, stabilizers are added, and the latex is mixed to increase the rubber content.

The latex is then custom compounded with the addition of other water-based raw materials to achieve the desired performance characteristics of the final end product, NATLEX.
