CYATEX NK-220

CYATEX NK-220 is carboxylated Butadiene-Acrylonitrile copolymer latex, i.e. NBR latex, for
gloves.

CYATEX NK-220 is designed for the manufacture of gloves, prepared by coagulant dipping.

CYATEX NK-220 is specially designed to show high tensile and soft to the touch.

CYATEX NK-220 also has many advantages including;


1. High flexibility/ softness
2. No protein and No silicone
3. Good resistance against oil or chemicals
4. Lower odor
5. Anti electrostatic property
6. Less bubbling

Typical properties

Total solids/ % 44-46

Storage and handling

CYATEX NK-220 must be stored in closed containers between +5℃ and +40℃. Long time
storage below 0℃ causes freezing and above +60℃ causes thermal coagulation. Please refer
to the Material Safety Data Sheet for safety and environmental information.
