Description: NR Lattices being natural products are less stable than SBR Lattices. NR Lattices require more testing and control measures to produce latex foam successfully. In order to successfully produce latex form using NR Lattices, the author has used a Low Ammonia preserved NR latex concentrate to illustrate this production process. Are you struggling or experiencing issues with producing NR latex foam in a laboratory or factory environment? Do you find that the foam is very temperamental or have you encountered numerous issues such as irregular day-to-day production using the same batch of latex compound or issues with foaming station efficiency? Common problems like these result in factory downtime and which can equate to significant losses. The author discusses all the possible scenarios in latex foam production and analyses with scientific explanations together with recommendations to prevent unwanted recurring issues in foam production including loose skin, laking, rat holes, uneven hardness, hard lumps and voids in the foam matrix. This is a two-part presentation. Part one describes latex foam and all the processes that you need to know. Part two is the full detailed account of process controls and trouble shooting in the latex foam manufacturing process.
Expert: Latex foam consultant with over 25 years’ experience in latex foam processing. Extensive knowledge in natural rubber lattices, Polyurethane foams, Latex foams, rubber adhesives, rubber to metal bonding, powder rubber and thermoplastic rubbers. Mr Chong has played a crucial part in consulting for both national and international companies. His value within the industry lies in his depth of experience in, and understanding of, the intricacies of latex foam production and manufacturing, abilities in complex research and development and effective implementation to improve and streamline processes. Drawing on his significant market and industry knowledge, Mr Chong has produced a comprehensive guide to latex foam processing.

Description: Compounding latices is a critical stage in the manufacturing, as this operation, more than any other, is where quality is built into the product. The practice of latex compounding is simple, although understanding what is actually going on within the mix is more complicated. This webinar aims to describe some of the underlying chemistry and physics of compounding natural and synthetic latices.

Description: Latex stability is critical for successful dipping. It is also technically a very complex subject. The related process of film forming is similarly complicated. This webinar will describe, in simple terms, some of the underlying principles that can be used by a latex formulator to help address problems with latex stability and film-forming, and create a better product.

Description: Many latex dipped products, such as condoms and gloves, have to comply with regulatory requirements, and one of the requirements will be that the manufacturing processes have to be validated. Process validation, however, as will be shown in this webinar, can be much more than a regulatory requirement and lead to a better understanding of the process and product quality.
