ZEON Launches Nipol® LX561 for Next-Generation Thin-Film Disposable GlovesPrint Page

May 11, 2015

ZEON CORPORATION (President: Kimiaki Tanaka) has commenced sales of Nipol® LX561, a new grade of latex in the Nipol® NBR product. Nipol® LX561 is suitable for the production of next-generation thin-film disposable gloves at thickness levels of 0.050mm providing comfortable workability. Additionally, Nipol® LX561 provides significant performance improvements in regards to tensile elongation during film processing and limits declines in the yield ratio due to pinholes and other defects.

Gloves made of Nipol® LX561 meet the European standards (EN455) for force at break (6N and above) at the reduced film thickness levels.

As demand for the glove market continues to grow due to the heightened consumer awareness regarding hygienic management around the world, we expect even greater demand for NBR latex products addressing the need for enhanced workability (thinner glove materials).

Zeon will consistently provide customers with new value by making maximum use of its know- how and cutting-edge technologies. (Nipol® LX561 precedes the launch of the Nipol® LX560 which was introduced to the market in June 2014).
