Footwear foam

High solid latices for top quality footwear foam products

Synthomer’s high-solids styrene-butadiene rubber (HSSBR) latices for footwear have been developed to provide top quality performance in applications such as foam cushions and insoles. From hard to soft and stiff to flexible, as well as our unique visco-elastic formulation, Synthomer has a product to meet your precise needs in applications such as:

  • Flat foam and foam laminates (gel and non-gel). 
  • Moulded footwear foam (gel and non-gel).

All Synthomer Lipolan F products deliver a perfect, fine open-cell foam structure, ensuring outstanding elasticity, as well as efficient air and moisture transport. All our latices are suitable for both gel and non-gel processes. The mechanical stability and excellent consistency ensure convenient and efficient foam manufacturing.

Synthomer Lipolan F latices will bring the following benefits to your footwear foam applications:

  • Achieve your desired degree of resilience, flexibility, stiffness and hardness.
  • Perfect foam structure and superior moisture transport.
  • Suitable for both gel and non-gel processes.
  • Broadest portfolio of HSSBR products to cater for all your requirements.
  • Security of supply from the largest HSSBR plant worldwide.
  • Products made to the highest standards in Germany.
  • Products are available globally.
  • Technical service team available to support you on-site during production, ramp-up phases and machine set-up.

Group Tradename Chemistry Description
LIPOLAN LIPOLAN F 2040F HSSBR LIPOLAN F 2040F is an aqueous dispersion of a styrene-butadiene copolymer with a high solids content. The emulsifier used is an alkaline salt of fatty acids, which provides a good stability and foamability. LIPOLAN F 2040F does not contain any antioxidant. LIPOLAN F 2040F is mainly used to produce moulded foam. Foam made of LIPOLAN F 2040F exhibits a very soft indentation hardness with a very high resilience.
LIPOLAN LIPOLAN F 2420F HSSBR LIPOLAN® F 2420F is an aqueous dispersion of a reinforced styrene-butadiene copolymer with a high solids content. The emulsifier used is an alkaline salt of fatty acids, which provides a good stability and foamability. Moulded foam based on LIPOLAN® F 2420F exhibits a soft indentation hardness with good resilience.
LIPOLAN LIPOLAN F 2530F HSSBR Moulded foam products based on LIPOLAN F 2530F exhibit under usual ambient conditions a low indentation hardness with a low resilience, achieving a unique visco-elastic effect. LIPOLAN F 2530F is an aqueous dispersion of a styrene-butadiene copolymer with a high solids content. It is stabilsed using an alkaline salt of fatty acids, which also provides a good foamability. LIPOLAN F 2530F does not contain any antioxidant.
LIPOLAN LIPOLAN F 2610F HSSBR LIPOLAN® F 2610F is an aqueous dispersion of a reinforced styrene-butadiene copolymer with a high solids content. The emulsifier used is an alkaline salt of fatty acids, which provides a good stability and foamability. Moulded foam based on LIPOLAN® F 2610F exhibits a high indentation hardness with a good resilience.
LIPOLAN LIPOLAN F 2810F HSSBR LIPOLAN® F 2810F is an aqueous dispersion of a reinforced styrene-butadiene copolymer with a high solids content. The emulsifier used is an alkaline salt of fatty acids, which provides a good stability and foamability. Moulded foam based on LIPOLAN® F 2810F exhibits a very high indentation hardness with a good resilience.
LIPOLAN LIPOLAN F 2820F HSSBR LIPOLAN® F 2820F is an aqueous dispersion of a reinforced styrene-butadiene copolymer with a high solids content. The emulsifier used is an alkaline salt of fatty acids, which gives the product good stability and foamability. Moulded foam based on LIPOLAN® F 2820F exhibits a medium high indentation hardness with a good resilience.
