Synthetic latices for medical devices

Key features:
  • High flexibility in the dipping process
  • Low gas permeation
  • Ozone resistance.

Synthomer is a global supplier of synthetic latices used in medical device manufacturing.

Our chlorobutadiene (CR) range, LIPRENTM, is a unique range of CRs with different crystallisation tendencies. These blends ensure high functional safety and can be optimised for rapid product development.

Synthomer CR latices also offer a highly flexible dipping process. This enables manufacturers to create a wide range of shapes with specific medical applications, such as catheters, respiratory bellows, medical seat cushions, and so on.

TradenameChemistryDescription
LIPREN™ T CRLIPREN T is an aqueous, colloidal dispersion of a polymer of 2-chlorobutadiene (1,3). Its vulcanizates have a slight to medium crystallization tendency and undergo little discolouration when exposed to light. LIPREN T is mainly used in the production of dipped goods.
LIPREN™ X1112 CRLIPREN X1112 is an aqueous, colloidal dispersion of polymerised 2-chlorobutadiene (1,3). Vulcanised LIPREN X1112 has very little tendency to crystallize. LIPREN X1112 is mainly used in the production of dipped goods, but also for the production of flame retardant foams. It is either foamed or used to impregnate PU foams.
