Natural or synthetic compounds to meet your production needs!

Latex glovesAmong the natural compounds we supply are those for straight dip and coagulant dip processes employed in the manufacture of medical products such as surgeons' gloves, examination gloves, catheters, rebreather bags and prophylactics.

Natural latex cohesives used to coat paper, film, foam, and corrugated are another Chemionics specialty.

Other natural rubber dip compounds are used for balloons, toys, industrial parts, and automotive parts. Chemionics also supplies conductive dip compounds used for rebreather bags and gloves, and molding compounds used for plaster and concrete casting and reproduction of surface profiles.

Neoprene and nitrile latex compounds are used for numerous coating and dipping applications, as well as cord dips for industrial belts and hoses. Synthetic latex compounds are also used as coating materials in industrial and commercial markets, as well as "Latex Free" cohesives.

Latex Compounds
Chemionics produces high quality natural and synthetic latex compounds and a variety of blends of natural and synthetic polymers. Natural latex compounds are tailored to meet the stringent requirements of straight dip and coagulant dip processes used in the manufacture of medical products such as surgeon and exam gloves, catheters, and re-breather bags. In addition, Chemionics produces a unique series of high solids natural latex compounds used in plaster casting of rigid parts, doll bodies, and face masks.

To assist our customers with their manufacturing of latex products, Chemionics also produces specialty coagulants, dispersions, pH adjusters and other additive systems.
