In the rubberising process, natural fibres are layered and form a loose fleece. Then we spray fully traceable (if needed: FSC-certified) natural latex onto the fleece. Little latex drops sit down on each place where fibres meet. When we subsequently heat the wet semifinished sheet, the latex converts into flexible and elastic natural rubber.
- Curled fibres are layered and form a loose sheet.
- We spray natural latex into the sheet.
- During pressing and heating we determine the thickness and the density of the material.
- Vulcanisation leads to a sheet that's resistant to sagging.
This process delivers fully natural and biodegradable sheets with a very open, thus ventilating, yet resilient structure. Each of our plants in Volendam (The Netherlands), Poland and the United Kingdom produces rubberised products locally and with its own specialities.
Fire Retandant versions of rubberized products are available!
