Rubber gloves are used in many industrial, medical and household applications. They can be made from natural latex, nitrile or chloroprene. The process involves dipping a ceramic former into a latex dispersion. Tylose® acts as a thickener and prevents sedimentation as well as influences the thickness of the finished rubber material.
We recommend Tylose® grades with a low to medium viscosity level.
Tylose® has numerous advantageous properties such as thickening, water retention, adhesion, binding, plasticising, film forming, gelling and surface tension modifying. Utilising these properties makes Tylose® a highly suitable additive for many applications.
