On the 16th of October 2018, Synthomer announced the closure of Revertex Malaysia. Manufacturing at the Kluang plant will cease at the end of December 2018.
Revertex Malaysia manufactured a range of products including low, medium and high modulus prevulcanised natural rubber latex compounds. These are used in the manufacture of a wide range of products including household gloves, industrial gloves, surgeon’s gloves, balloons, latex sheeting, teats and soothers, latex moulds, film cinema special effects makeup and electricians’ gloves.
Closing at such short notice will present difficulties for their customers, but sourcing replacement raw materials is something we can help with. In conjunction with Getahindus Malaysia, we offer a range of natural latex products which match or exceed the performance of Revertex materials.
At Formulated Polymers Products, we supply a wide range of water based polymer systems including adhesives, coatings and flame retardants. With over 25 years’ experience behind us we are well placed to offer help and advice. We have a modern, flexible, efficient manufacturing facility and typically supply orders within 3-10 working days, shipping throughout the UK and internationally.
