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: 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.
