Synthomer latices ensure functional safety for medical devices and balloons

Synthomer’s versatile latices allow you to deliver the high functional safety and rapid product development that the medical devices sector demands. Our synthetic latex products (CR, NBR) will provide the performance you need in applications such as catheters, respiratory bellows, medical seat cushions and balloons. In addition, our Lipren T latex offers low gas permeation, ensuring balloons retain their shape much longer, and ozone resistance, making it the ideal material for weather balloons.

In all cases, the highly flexible dipping process offered by Synthomer’s latices allows you to create diverse shapes to meet your specific requirements.

  • Allows high flexibility of the dipping process
  • Lower gas permeation (for balloons that retain their shape for much longer)
  • Ozone resistance (preferred material for meteorological balloons)

Tradename Chemistry Description
LIPREN™ T CR LIPREN 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 CR LIPREN 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.
