Application Advice/Typical Applications



The major use for LR Revultex is in the manufacture of toy balloons where the low modulus offers high and easy inflation. It is also used widely as a ‘seed’ latex for post-vulcanisable dipping compounds where the combination of pre and post vulcanisation provides high product performance. LR gives a strong gel when compounded in heat sensitised applications particularly when containing filler.

Shipping and Storage

Store the product under shelter at temperature between 10°C and 33°C. Creaming of latex may occur during storage. It is therefore necessary to mix well the latex before use. As the product is based on natural rubber latex, changes in latex colloidal properties may occur on storage. Available in both drum and bulk.
