LITEX S 2806

Litex S 2806 is an aqueous NH3 free colloidal dispersion of a copolymer of butadiene and styrene with carboxylic groups. It is stabilised by an anionic emulsifier and does not contain an antioxidant agent. It is a versatile latex grade for footwear applications and can be used as a binder for fabrics, paper and cardboard. Toe puff and counter material becomes thermoformable, stiff and grindable with Litex S 2806.

Technical Informations

Application Advice/Typical Applications

Litex S 2806 is used to bind wovens, non-wovens, paper and cardboard for footwear applications. Material made with Litex S 2806 is thermoformable and exhibits a high stiffness. Typical applications are the impregnation of insole, toe puff or counter material. Because of its high mechanical stability Litex S 2806 can be processed using any kind of standard impregnating and coating equipment. It can be blended with most synthetic XSBR-latices provided they contain anionic or non-ionic stabilizers. Litex S 2806 can either be applied liquid as delivered, foamed and/or diluted to the desired concentration with water. Suitable aqueous thickening agents are those which are widely used in the latex-processing industry, such as aqueous preparations of modified cellulose, alginates, polyvinyl alcohols and salts of poly(meth)acrylic acid. Litex S 2806 does not contain any antioxidant. If required a suitable antioxidant agent can be added to the compound in order to achieve the desired protection. Due to its high bound styrene content Litex S 2806 does not form a film at room temperature. In order to optimise the performance of the material finished with Litex S 2806, it is normally necessary to process the compound at temperatures significantly higher than the minimum film formation temperature. Avoid any contact of the product with metals which are not corrosion-resistant.

Shipping and Storage
