Technical Informations

Application Advice/Typical Applications

SYNTHOMER X6617 is easy to compound with no specific requirements during compounding as the material provides good stabilization. It is easily adaptable to most manufacturing conditions, providing good yield.

SYNTHOMER X6617 is designed for the manufacture of industrial gloves, prepared by coagulant dipping. It is flexible enough to be used to make unsupported gloves; the latex can also be formulated for use as a flock adhesive dip. With the right formulation, gloves made from SYNTHOMER X6617 gives better abrasion and puncture resistance with excellent chemical resistance. 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 X6617 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.
