Pre-crosslinked natural rubber.

The Superpoly (SP) line of specialty polyisoprene natural rubbers consists of partially pre-crosslinked, high performance elastomers available in bale form. These elastomers are produced by blending specific proportions of vulcanized and unvulcanized natural rubber during the latex phase of production. The latex phase blending is said to ensure a homogeneous, uniform mix of the two components. Due to their unique two-phase structure, SP natural rubbers are said to be very clean, light in color, and contain low levels of volatile matter. Applications include wiper blades, tubing, hoses, sponge, surgical articles, gaskets, windscreen seals, adhesives, etc.
