Natural Rubber adhesives

Natural rubber adhesive is one of the earliest substances used to bind materials. Because of its capacity to become elastic when heated, it is one of the most popular adhesives on the market, and is typically used in bonding organic and porous materials like leather, paper, fabrics, as well as other rubber products. Adhesive rubber also offers water-resistant properties, flexibility, and versatility, making it a good choice for use in clothing and footwear manufacturing, as well as for reinforcing the backing of carpets and floor rugs.

The flexibility provided by natural rubber adhesives, along with the multiple viscosities that can be formulated using these materials, also make them ideal general-purpose adhesives.

U.S. Adhesives manufactures a wide range of natural adhesive rubber formulations for a variety of applications. Our products include natural latex rubber for use with footwear or for bonding rubber to rubber, rubber to metal, or for use with porous materials, such as for bonding fabric to fabric, without needing any more stitching or patching. The water-resistant feature of our rubber adhesives also makes them a strong, flexible, and reliable choice for heavy duty use or outdoor applications.
