Preparation Polyisoprene (NR) and Polyacrylonitrile Rubber Latex Glove Films by Dipping Ceramic Hand Molds Process and their Properties
Both synthetic and natural rubber latex can be used to form rubber latex glove films for medical and dental applications. The objective in this research is to study the natural and synthetic rubber latex glove films formation by dipping process with the bone china ceramic hand molds for 5, 10, and 15 min. From the experimental, the obtained natural rubber latex glove films are good appearance and good physical-mechanical properties i.e. smooth film surface, light pale yellow color, soft, translucent, high tensile strength, high elongation at break, and high flexibility better than those of synthetic rubber latex glove films. When the dipping time of bone china hand mold into natural rubber latex compound increases effect to tensile strength, thickness, and elongation at break increase. Tensile strength, elongation at break, and tensile stress of natural rubber latex films dipped for 15 min are equal to 12.82 ± 1.19 MPa, 1090.91 ± 4.92%, and 39.23 ± 3.63 N, respectively.
