SYNTHOMER 6338 is an aqueous, colloidal dispersion of carboxylated butadiene-acrylonitrile copolymer with a high acrylonitrile level. The dispersion contains an emulsifier system and is stabilized with an antioxidant
SYNTHOMER 6338 is easy to compound with no specific requirements during compounding as the material provides good stabilization. It is easily adaptable to most manufacturing, providing high yield.
SYNTHOMER 6338 is recommended for producing thin film barrier of very low thickness with excellent tensile strength and high elongation at break. The product are characterized by faster film gelation for better adaptability to producing articles of very low thickness with good film formation using a typical coagulant dipping process. With the right formulation products made from it are characterized by their excellent chemical resistance with a good balance of softness whilst maintaining good abrasion and puncture resistance properties. Our technical service team would be please to provide you with a typical formulation as a guide and assist if needed.
Shipping and Storage
SYNTHOMER 6338 is supplied in road tankers or in non-returnable plastics drums secured by a lid with clamping ring or in non-returnable palletized bulk containers.
Store at an even temperature of between + 5°C and + 35°C, avoiding frost and direct sunlight. Care must be taken that drums and storage containers are closed tightly. During processing, storage and transport of the product, contact with metals, unprotected against corrosion (likewise non ferrous metals), has to be avoided. If stored according to these conditions, in appropriate containers or in bulk condition with proper hygiene management, Synthomer is able to confirm that the latex will be stable for 6 months from production date.
