  • The Differences Between "Latex" and " Natural Rubber"
    The Hygenic Corporation is one of the only manufacturers of both "natural rubber latex" and "natural rubber" products. Many people don't realize that there is a difference between "latex", "natural rubber latex" and "natural rubber".
  • What Makes Natural Rubber Latex Products Unique?
    Products made from natural rubber latex have many unique properties that make them desirable for a variety of applications. Excellent stretch and recovery is one of the main reasons people use natural rubber latex in their applications. The facts that natural rubber latex is biodegradable
  • Medical Device Link . Soft and Elastic TPE Provides an Alternative to Latex Process Microfuses Radiopaque Markers to Intravenous Devices Adhesive Coating Technology Solves Packaging Problems
    Teknor Apex Co. (Pawtucket, RI) has introduced a soft and elastic thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) that provides a low-cost, nonallergenic alternative to latex rubber. Beyond latex replacement, Tekron 96-E0807A-03NT opens new design possibilities because it can be easily overmolded onto other
  • History of Rubber
    In its native regions of Central American and South America, rubber has been collected for a long time. Mesoamerican people (which include Aztecs, Olmecs, and Mayans) were making rubber over 3,000 years ago. By mixing milky-white sap, known as latex, from Rubber tress with juices from morning glory
  • How to Choose the Best Rubber Solution for Your Application
    As one of the only manufacturers of natural rubber latex, synthetic rubber, and thermoplastic products, The Hygenic Corporation has the expertise to deliver custom formulations produced to exceptionally tight tolerances. Each of Hygenic's rubber materials offers distinct advantages and differences
  • The 4 Most Common Rubber Manufacturing Processes
    and tradeoffs. Some of the most common rubber manufacturing processes are extrusion, latex dipping, molding, and calendering.
  • Medical Device Link .
    Medical Device & Diagnostic Industry As the industry is moving away from latex products, could you please advise on a material preferably injection- moldable plastic to serve as a substitute for rubber in injection sites and ports. Where can I get this material? In this question the phrases
  • Moisture in Crumb Rubber
    Optimizing moisture levels not only increases yield, but also the efficiency of the drying operation. The first stage of this process involves the polymerization of butadiene and styrene polymers to form a milky white emulsion termed Latex. The reaction is stopped before completion, owing to a fall
