Superior protection capabilities for medical and examination glove applications

  • High flexibility and comfort
  • High barrier protection for the end user
  • Excellent balance of strength and softness.

Synthomer is a leading global supplier of acrylonitrile butadiene rubber (NBR latex) for glove dipping. Designed for a wide range of healthcare applications, our NBR emulsions meet the high performance requirements of medical and examination glove manufacturers. Our NBR latices are suitable for broad application including clean-room operations, food handling, medical and chemical laboratory work.

SyNovus™ is our latest innovation platform that focusses on the development of sustainable NBR for glove manufacturing. Through the SyNovus™ platform, we developed SyNovus™ Plus – a new generation NBR latex with sustainability benefits. With low curing temperatures that use 10-20% less energy, SyNovus™ Plus drives down carbon emissions from your production line.

SyNovus™ Plus is accelerator free and has a reduced chemical loading, minimizing the risk of Type IV allergy. Gloves made with SyNovus™ Plus are readily recyclable into new rubber products such as soles for shoes. More sustainable latex means more sustainable manufacturing, and more sustainable end products.

We supply a range of aqueous, colloidal dispersions of carboxylated butadiene acrylonitrile copolymer with various acrylonitrile levels, containing an emulsifier system, and stabilised with an antioxidant.

SYNOVUS™ PLUSNBR

SyNovus™ Plus is a new nitrile technology offered by Synthomer. It is designed with proprietary cross-linking to optimize barrier protection performance of the final dipped gloves. With this proprietary technology, it is therefore able to cure at lower temperature than conventional latex and requires no sulfur and accelerator.
