Now in its fifth year the conference provided crucial updates on the latest trends and developments in natural latex, aqueous synthetic polymer latices, processing chemicals and additives. Topics addressed included new materials, machinery and equipment developments, application methods, standards & regulatory requirements, materials testing, quality control and market trends. More specifically, papers provided insight into many key developments and solutions to the key issues of the latex sector. These included: - Novel methods of reducing protein levels in natural rubber - Accelerators and cross-linking agents potentially offering improved toxicological performance - Development of new synthetic latices with modified characteristics - Latest developments in the field of nanoscience achieved by combining different polymers and inorganic materials and their practical applications - Increasing application of aqueous systems in the adhesive industry
