BeThEPS BE THAI ECONOMIC PRESERVATIVES FOR RUBBER SHEETS

Background

Coagulation and putrefaction of fresh natural rubber latex prior to rubber sheets processing is a critical issue. Poor transportation infrastructure in many regions where rubber is grown has lengthen the transportation time from the plantation fields to the rubber sheet processing plants. Fresh latex also has a short shelf life which needs to be transported as soon as it is harvested, often in small loads . There is always a short term oversupply of fresh latex during peak season, hence shelf life extension of the fresh latex is in need. To overcome this problem, a new technology “BeThEPS” has been developed. BeThEPS provides the same benefit of extending shelf life by eliminating the coagulation and putrefaction problems, but does not possess detrimental side effects associated with ammonia and sodium sulfide which are widely used.
