The rubber tree, Hevea brasiliensis, is a native of the Amazonian forest. Grown now in parts of Africa and Asia, it is one of the world’s most closely studied and carefully tended plants.
Natural rubber is elastic, flexible, airtight, watertight, long lasting and insulating, to mention just a few of its properties. The KLK Group produces rubber latex concentrate and block rubber.
EXCELTEX® natural rubber latex concentrate is available in three types. EXCELTEX® is the registered trademark for KLK’s rubber latex concentrate.
General Purpose EXCELTEX Grades
This grade conforms to the standard grade listed in the International Standards Organisation (ISO) and Standards & Industrial Research Institute of Malaysia (SIRIM) specifications for centrifuged, ammonia preserved, natural latex concentrates.
This is a general-purpose, ‘high’ ammonia type of latex concentrate. By far the most widely used natural rubber latex concentrate, this type will fit into almost any formulation not requiring a special type. This type can be readily blended with standard synthetic lattices in any proportions.
Special Purpose EXCELTEX Grades
This group consists of two special grades of latex concentrate developed to suit particular customer requirements.
- EXCELTEX-DC (DOUBLE CENTRIFUGED)
Dry natural rubber graded on the basis of technical parameters is called Technically Specified Rubbers (TSR). The International Standards Organisation (“ISO”) first came out with the draft Technical Specifications for Natural Rubber in 1964. Based on these specifications, Malaysia introduced its Standard Malaysian Rubber (“SMR”) scheme in 1965.
The SMR grades produced by KLK are :
- SMR 10
- SMR 20
