Nychem® 1562X170 Acylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene Latex

Nychem 1562X170 is one of our Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene Emulsion offerings. This line offers a balance of very good resistance to both polar and nonpolar solvents. Nychem 1562X170 also possesses very good 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 1562X170 is a noncarboxylated acrylonitrile butadiene styrene polymer latex that is stabilized with natural surfactants so it exhibits excellent water and alkali resistance and, if desired, can be easily destabilized. It has high surface tension which gives good resistance to rewetting. Common application is gasketing.
