RAW MATERIAL

INLATSA’S raw material comes from the rubber plantations of our suppliers, associates, non associates, big and small producers. The raw material in the form of field latex is weighed, sampled, and analyzed to verify compliance with the preset reception specifications.

A bactericidal mixture, D.A.P., and ammonium laureth is added in specified percentages into reception tanks. After a certain period of rest, the field latex is centrifuged and concentrated by machines that rotate at seven thousand revolutions per minute, separating the mixture with the most rubber molecules content from the other mixture having the most water or skim content.

The centrifuged and concentrated rubber latex is stored in horizontal tanks where anhydrous ammonia and stabilizers adjustments are checked. Simultaneously, its natural maturation process is developed.
