The majority of our latex is chlorinated, this is a process which smooths the surface of the latex, making it much easier to dress and greatly reducing the need for talc and lubricants.
There are many advantages to using this procedure, there are no messy talc marks, latex can be layered under normal clothes, or on top of other rubber items. The life of your latex may also be increased as chlorination stops any stickiness after washing and drying.
Treated latex can be handled in exactly the same way as unchlorinated, the only difference being that the surface of a repair needs to be roughened slightly with sandpaper before gluing.
Some of our products are not chlorinated, such as accessories and items with lace or metals, these are noted in the product description.
