Moulded foam products based on LIPOLAN F 2530F exhibit under usual ambient conditions a low indentation hardness with a low resilience, achieving a unique visco-elastic effect. LIPOLAN F 2530F is an aqueous dispersion of a styrene-butadiene copolymer with a high solids content. It is stabilsed using an alkaline salt of fatty acids, which also provides a good foamability. LIPOLAN F 2530F does not contain any antioxidant.

Technical Informations

Application Advice/Typical Applications

LIPOLAN® F 2530F remains mechanically stable when complying with the storage conditions given below.

Vulcanised latex foam made using LIPOLAN F 2530F exhibits a very low resilience, having a so-called "visco-elastic" effect. Both tensile strength and elongation at break of the vulcanised latex allow a great flexibility of mould design. LIPOLAN F 2530F has to be vulcanised in a similar manner to natural rubber latex. In order to achieve an optimal quality level, rubber chemicals must be adapted to the compound formulation and manufacturing conditions. LIPOLAN F 2530F suits to Dunlop, Talalay and the non-gel process.

Shipping and Storage

LIPOLAN F 2530F is delivered in road tankers. Shipment in 1 ton containers (IBC) is also possible.
LIPOLAN F 2530F must permanently be protected against frost. The ideal storage temperature range is between + 5°C and + 30 °C. Exposure to temperatures above + 30 °C or to direct sunlight for extended periods of time has to be avoided. Temperatures never must exceed + 40 °C. 
Complying with these storage conditions the dispersion has a shelf life of 6 months after delivery, when kept permanently and tightly closed. The pH value of the dispersion may decrease due to absorption of carbon dioxide from air. Dispersions having a pH lower than 10 should be readjusted to the initial value using an aqueous KOH solution of 5 % concentration. Material in broached containers should be used as soon as possible. In some cases, a slight drying of the surface or some cream formation cannot be excluded. Therefore the dispersion or the compound made of it should be stirred or mixed before use.
