Nychem® 1562

Nychem® 1562 is one of our Specialty Emulsion offerings.  It is a noncarboxylated butadiene acrylonitrile copolymer latex with a medium nitrile content featuring a combination of very good oil, grease and hydrocarbon resistance, toughness/resilience, and tear and abrasion resistance.  Toughness, abrasion resistance and chemical resistance can be further enhanced though either vulcanization or by adding external crosslinking agents such as melamines, epoxies, phenolics or metal complexes.  Nychem® 1562  is stabilized with natural surfactants so it exhibits excellent water and alkali resistance and, if desired, can be easily destabilized. It is approved for use under FDA regulations 175.105 (adhesives) and 177.2600 (rubber articles). Common applications include paper saturation, adhesives, leather finishing and textile coatings.
