Specialities of Natural Latex that we distribute:
|3rd Party Products||Grade||Properties|
|PVultex||Various||Prevulcanised ready-to-use formulations with varying levels of ammonia and modulus to fit specific applications. Evaporated latex with high solid content.|
|VYTEX||LA (Low Ammonia)||For applications requiring lower levels of antigenic protein. Produced using the eco-friendly Vystar Corporation-patented process.|
|NRL (Full Ammonia)|
Specialities of Natural Latex that we intermediate
|Centrifuged||High Ammonia||Preserved with ammonium hydroxide where a higher starting pH is preferred.|
|LATZ||Low Ammonia preserved with a secondary system of TMTD/ZnO.|
|Double Centrifuged||CENTEX DC||For applications requiring low levels of water-extractable proteins and those that benefit from lower non-rubber solids.|
|HA&LA||TMTD Free||High or Low Ammonia versions which employ alternate preservation systems where TMTD/ZnO is not desirable.|
|Homogenised||CENTEX HF||High Ammonia that has undergone additional processing after centrifugation to archive lower micro coagulum content and more uniform particle size greater filterability.|
|CENTEXPRO||High Ammonia & Low Ammonia||Produced internally under stringent independent certified audit criteria covering Industrial & Quality Standards, Environment, Health & Safety, Sustainable Supply Chain and Supply Chain Security.|
Synthetic Rubbers and Latex
They are aqueous dispersions of butadiene-styrene copolymer with a high amount of solid (> 65%) produced by cold polymerization.
Taktene Latex is used in the production of:
1. The foams produced with Taktene® Latex presents good elasticity, rebound and dimensional stability.
2. Taktene® Latex S62F does not contain biocides and therefore it can be used in food applications, such as in the production of chewing gum bases.
3. Asphalt binders modified with Taktene® Latex show elastic properties that reduce rutting (permanent deformation) and fatigue cracking, which increases pavement durability and reduces maintenance costs. This modification also allows an expansion of the service temperature range.
We supply synthetic materials from leading, client-approved producers.
We supply synthetic materials from leading, client-approved producers. Our independently sourced materials are always produced in accordance with international standards.
Our suppliers run regular audits that ensure that these standards are upheld and proper measures applied in the sustainability of production.
