Summary Latexes are currently under going extensive research and development as key replacement materials for many solvent-based systems. They are being used in a broad range of fields from adhesives, inks, paints, coatings, drug delivery systems, medical assay kits, gloves, paper coatings, floor polish, films, carpet backing and foam mattresses to cosmetics. Latex is also used to improve properties, for example as an impact modifier in polystyrene and to improve tensile properties in cement. Currently, more than 8 million dry metric tons of latex are produced globally each year. Natural rubber latex
