||LIPREN MKB is an aqueous, colloidal dispersion of a polymer of 2-chlorobutadiene (1,3). Its vulcanizates have a slight to medium crystallization tendency. LIPREN MKB is mainly used as a binder for fibres of all types.
||LIPREN SK is an aqueous, colloidal dispersion of polymerised 2-chlorobutadiene (1,3). It is mainly used to impregnate fabrics for toe puff and counter material. Films made of LIPREN SK have a very strong crystallisation tendency.
||LITEX N 3415 M
||LITEX N 3415 M is an aqueous, colloidal dispersion of a carboxylated butadiene-acrylonitrile copolymer. LITEX N 3415 M contains an anionic/non-ionic emulsifier system and is stabilized with an antioxidant.
||LITEX NX 1200
||LITEX NX 1200 is an aqueous, plasticizer-free and formaldehyde reduced dispersion of a butadiene-acrylonitrile copolymer that can be crosslinked by heat. LITEX NX 1200 contains an anionic-nonionic emulsifier system and is stabilized with an antioxidant.
||LITEX S 2806
||Litex S 2806 is an aqueous NH3 free colloidal dispersion of a copolymer of butadiene and styrene with carboxylic groups. It is stabilised by an anionic emulsifier and does not contain an antioxidant agent. It is a versatile latex grade for footwear applications and can be used as a binder for fabrics, paper and cardboard. Toe puff and counter material becomes thermoformable, stiff and grindable with Litex S 2806.
