Natural, and Synthetic Latex & Formulated Products

Natural Latex      

Natural rubber is a highly processed plant product from the latex of the commercial rubber tree Heavea Brasiliensis; which is grown in the tropical climates of the world nearest the equator. Malaysia, Thailand, Guatemala, and Vietnam are the world’s primary producing countries. The majority of natural rubber is processed for manufacture of extruded rubber products, molded goods, and pneumatic tires. The remaining 10% is used for the manufacture of rubber gloves and other dipped products such catheters, tubing, balloons, condoms, and bath mats. Natural rubber is also well suited as a binding agent for various adhesives, can sealants, and mattresses.

Formulated Products    

CADY, with its long history and experience with multiple latex chemistries, is able to formulate various blended products. This enables us to provide the positive attributes of more than one type of latex to any given application. See below for a brief list of product families that we produce.

  • Natural Latex: Synthetic Latex blendsPatterned/Embossable, Gel-Type, Rubber Rug Backing
  • Non-Skid Sprays
  • Press & Seal Adhesives for Box Closures/Napkin Nings
  • Glue-Lap Adhesives for Corrugated Box Construction
  • Gel and non-gel foam compounds for shoe insoles
  • Non-skid rug underlay
Synthetic Latex    
Synthetic rubber latex is produced by the polymerization of various petroleum based precursor monomers. The primary synthetic rubber lattices are produced from styrene and butadiene monomer. These monomers are copolymerized to produce unique and optimized physical, mechanical, and chemical properties, dependent upon the end application.
  • Hot-Polymerized, Styrene Butadiene, 52%+/-
  • Hot-Polymerized, Carboxylated, CSBR, 52%+/-
  • Cold-Polymerized, High-Solids, Synthetic Rubber, 71%+/-
  • Cold-Polymerized, High-Solids, Cationic 66%+/-
Vinyl Acetate Ethylene (VAE)    

Ethylene-vinyl acetate is the copolymer of ethylene and vinyl acetate monomers. The ratio of ethylene to vinyl acetate varies depending upon what application the polymer is designed for and its specific properties. Use of this polymer offers good elasticity, softness, and flexibility; while it can also be processed like other thermoplastic materials. Ethylene vinyl acetate has good clarity and gloss, low temperature toughness, and resistance to UV radiation.
