  • PLEXTOLTM T, based on styrene-acrylic copolymer (SA).

We take into account factors such as the texture and character of untreated material, as well as desired properties such as elasticity, sound absorbency, thermal stability after moulding, comfort and longevity, to make sure we provide exactly the right binder for your application.

We offer latices that are compatible with fillers, flame retardants and antistatic agents to deliver the additional benefits of durability, anti-electrostatic behaviour and fireproofing.

Synthomer’s latices provide multiple functionality for the finishing of carpets. With our partners worldwide we are able to offer complete solutions including vulcanisation paste, gelling agents, thickener and soaps in conjunction with dedicated technical support at your site.

LITEX™ T 71S21XSBRLitex® T 71S21 is an aqueous dispersion of a carboxylated styrene-butadiene copolymer. The dispersion was developed for compounds designed for the production of drainage points and also for rubber crumb backings. It can also be used for precoats. When Litex® T 71S21 is used for precoats, the dispersion gives the carpets a soft handle. Litex® T 71S21 contains an antioxidant.
