Latex Advice

Post by Cherie »

Can anyone explain the benefits and issues with latex Chlorination (apart from just the extra cost) and does the process last? I have searched online, and understand what it is, what I was hoping for was some personal insights from people who have actually tried chlorinated and non-chlorinated latex. How does it look and feel. Any advice on dos and don’ts. Any help for a latex novice much appreciated.

I think this site sums it up pretty well: https://www.simon-o.com/us/chlorination

Thanks Rubberdee. Do you have any personal experience of rubber that has been treated?

I have treated some small items in the past with mixed success. Personally, I find normal untreated latex clingy, whereas the chlorinated stuff is not and it is a lot easier to get on. However, I just wear suits and gear that is not tight fitting these days, so that sort of alleviates the problem anyway.
