Synthetic latex can be produced on a large scale, thanks to continuous advances in process efficiency and technology.

OVERVIEW

Synthetic latex offers an alternative to natural latex, with numerous varieties available. These polymers were developed to provide performance characteristics not achieved with natural latex. Synthetic latex can be produced on a large scale, with advancements continually being made in process efficiency and technology.

SYNLEX are synthetic latex compounds produced to achieve specific high performance properties. Some of the primary synthetic polymers used include polychloroprene, nitrile, acrylic, SBR, and polyvinyl acetate.

How does it work ?

SYNLEX is formulated from various artificial polymers. They are generally made to meet unique properties not obtained with natural latex.

These properties include oil and chemical resistance, UV resistance, heat resistance and abrasion resistance. The end result is SYNLEX
