Adapted curing systems for all types of latex
Suprotex

Vulcanization is a chemical- technical process, in order to made latex robust by using time and temperature to mechanical stress and to chemical influences.To vulcanize the latex, heating the latex dispersion in combination with sulfur and accelerators, catalysts and fillers. The long chain molecules of the latex are cross-linked by sulfur bridge. Thereby the latex is losing the viscoplastic properties. The latex is converted by the vulcanization from an viscoplastic state in an elastic state.

Aqueous dispersions of natural or synthetic latex are used in the manufacture of mattresses, toppers, moldings, carpet backings and production of wipes and other web materials .

Weserland offers in these areas highly concentrated curing systems that are tailored to the specific needs and applications. So latex foams can be produced and cured according to all established procedures.
