The natural latex specialty material.


The natural latex ​specialty material.

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™.

Casting & Slush Casting 

These compounds are pre-vulcanized natural latex used to produce hollow, flexible products by slush casting into plaster molds. The latex sets up as a result of water in the latex being absorbed into the plaster mold, depositing a wall of gelled latex on the mold surface. The excess latex is then poured out of the mold, the remaining layer is partially dried, and then removed from the mold and completely dried.

GenGrip Foam Adhesives 

A one-part, water-based, natural latex adhesive specifically developed for adhesion for foam-to-foam applications. The adhesive can be sprayed, or brush applied to the foam. This adhesive bonds rapidly & reliably, as is required for these applications. Being water-based offers a solvent-free alternative to the existing solvent-based adhesives historically used for these applications. 


  • Upholstery  
  • Foam Mattresses 


NATLEX™ is a fully customizable solution, from color, formulation, properties, and characteristics.
