Description: Compounding latices is a critical stage in the manufacturing, as this operation, more than any other, is where quality is built into the product. The practice of latex compounding is simple, although understanding what is actually going on within the mix is more complicated. This webinar aims to describe some of the underlying chemistry and physics of compounding natural and synthetic latices.
Speaker: DAVID HILL # Graduate chemist, specializing in polymers. # Worked in the latex industry since 1981. # Worked with LRC (subsequently known as London International Group, SSL International). # Headed the Latex Research and Development and Group Process Development Departments. # Work included new product development, dipping line installation and commissioning, technical support, trouble-shooting, training, etc. # Started International Latex Consultancy in 2008. # Author of several scientific papers and patents. # Author of “Latex Dipping – Science and Technology”, 2nd edition, DeGruyter, 2019

Description: Latex stability is critical for successful dipping. It is also technically a very complex subject. The related process of film forming is similarly complicated. This webinar will describe, in simple terms, some of the underlying principles that can be used by a latex formulator to help address problems with latex stability and film-forming, and create a better product.

Description: Many latex dipped products, such as condoms and gloves, have to comply with regulatory requirements, and one of the requirements will be that the manufacturing processes have to be validated. Process validation, however, as will be shown in this webinar, can be much more than a regulatory requirement and lead to a better understanding of the process and product quality.

Description: All latex dipping processes will yield some scrap from time to time, even with a controlled and well-run production process. In these cases a careful investigation into the problem, including a systematic review of the data and examination of the faulty products can help solve the problems and increase productivity. This webinar will present various techniques found to be of use in trouble-shooting, with examples.
