Industries & Applications

Our Industries

TOY INDUSTRY

As soon as they discovered America, researchers reported that children there played with balls that bounced back. The material natural rubber latex is still widely used in the toy industry, e.g. for the production of balloons, rubber animals or molding compounds.

SPORTS INDUSTRY

With training equipment containing expander and compression elements made of natural rubber latex, we strengthen and train our muscles efficiently and gently. All muscle areas can be flexibly strengthened, especially during long lasting healing processes.

ADVERTISING

Natural rubber latex, which is characterised by extreme elasticity (up to 1200% stretchability), can be used to make thin-walled, seamless moulded parts (from 0.05 mm thickness), bellows, membranes, foils, seals, collection containers, … can be processed. Free shaping, adjustment of friction and chemical properties of the material natural rubber latex are possible.

Free shaping, adjustment of friction and chemical properties of the material natural rubber latex are possible.

TEXTILE INDUSTRY

With the use of natural rubber latex, we optimise wearing comfort, the falling of materials, friction behaviour, haptics The rubber mixtures can be applied or foamed onto the textiles by dipping, brushing, spraying. Special embossing techniques allow individual surface designs of the rubber surfaces.

LEISURE & HOBBY

We offer you a wide range of supports in the form of elastic seamless rubber goods, natural rubber latex compounds, natural catusu latex solutions. These products are used for making models, moulding, coating of textiles, gluing, sealing, training of birds of prey, increasing friction,… …friction.

MEDICINE

Seamless rubber goods can be produced with wall thicknesses as low as 0.05 mm and are used for consumer goods as well as for technologically advanced medical procedures for applications ranging from anamnesis to definitive care and rehabilitation.

FILM & THEATER

The world lets time stand still, we are enchanted, thrilled and amazed! Natural rubber latex can be used to make products that seem to defy the laws of nature. Artists’ balloons, rubber masses which are processed into bizarre masks, adhesive masses which allow artistic structures to be formed from composite materials (e.g. wood shavings with latex)…

GFK-CARBON TECHNOLOGY

The technically demanding production technology of, for example, futuristic-looking car body parts of the highest quality is brought into shape using the balloon method with special balloons manufactured in our company!

Applications

Natural rubber latex, a natural material, is CO2-neutral and biodegradable. Its impressive elasticity, coagulation behavior and softness offer technically useful applications in many areas of life, some of which are highlighted here as examples. We offer you our know-how and experience in the use of this fascinating natural material in the field of development to the production of your desired application.

STRETCH YOURSELF

Natural rubber latex can be used to produce films with wall thicknesses as thin as 0.05 mm, which are used in seamless moulded rubber articles, sports equipment, special parts for measuring technology, medical technology, the textile industry, research or mechanical engineering.

PERFECT TO PLAY

The soft, rebounding elastic articles, which seem to suspend the laws of nature, not only stimulate children in their creativity and play behaviour. Little rubber animals can be bent, compressed and deformed in a fun way without much effort. With latex masks of high wearing comfort we can escape into our dream world.

IDEAL FOR COATING

With natural rubber latex mixtures whose properties we adapt especially for your applications, you can coat your textiles, leather, precious metal surfaces, carpet backs with the processes brushing, spraying, dipping, squeegee, and thus refine them, make them non-slip, increase their abrasion resistance, improve their damping behavior.

SIGNAL TRANSMISSION

Our technology to produce even complicated thin-walled (from 0,05mm wall thickness) moulded articles made of natural rubber latex opens the possibility to develop and manufacture products for sensor and measuring technology. The high elasticity, the optimal rebound behaviour guarantees a very low-loss signal transmission even at low amplitude and over a wide frequency range.

SUITABLE FOR PRODUCTION TOOLS

The dimensional stability of molded parts made of natural rubber latex is particularly suitable for production tools in isostatic presses for the cost-effective manufacture of dimensionally accurate parts from expensive raw material powders.

FOAM DIVERSITY

Natural rubber latex compounds can be excellently foamed. The type and size of the pores, the hardness of the finished foam, the possible variety of shapes are the basis for further processing into insulating material, filler, mattresses

FASCINATINGLY LIGHT

Artfully designed decorative structures composed of latex balloons fascinate by their lightness when they move in the air flow as if driven by a ghostly hand and seem to overcome the laws of gravity.

EVOKE EMOTIONS

Articles made of natural rubber latex are gladly taken in the hand and encourage playing, arouse positive emotions – an ideal application to convey your message.

VERSATILE

The softness of natural rubber latex makes products supple and is ideal as a sealing material even in highly dynamic processes, such as sealing foil in cutter machines.
