In theory off the shelf latex compounds are great. Order your compound and it turns up and off you go. If only. The reality is that our customers inevitably have their own specific performance requirements be it for their product or for their processing plant. They also must deal with variations in the properties of the other components they use, for example, textiles which vary in composition, quality, and weight.
At Formulated Polymers we can formulate compounds that will enable you deal with these problems.
