Compotex is a Nitrile rubber specialist. There are two water-based technologies that we undertake for nitrile rubber. One is for sulphur curing, the other is for peroxide curing. All our products have a long shelf life.
We utilise an RFL system for textile reinforced sulphur curing nitrile rubber. This works for nylon, activated polyester, aramid, vectran, cotton and rayon.
For textile reinforced peroxide curing nitrile rubber, the technology is more complex, involving an additional process. The range of textiles that work with this peroxide technology are the same as for RFL – nylon, activated polyester, aramid, vectran, cotton and rayon.
For enquiries about Textiles for Nitrile Rubber bonding, we offer lab samples for adhesion testing, and our versatile production facility can then produce small production runs for customer evaluation. We also make use of different bonding technologies for nitrile rubber, and it is an important part of our service to be able to correctly identify the best one for each customer.

Textiles for Nitrile Rubber Example
In confirming our skills at treating a para-aramid fabric for adhesion to nitrile rubber, to replace a solvent system, we were able to offer the added advantage of a long shelf life for the dipped fabric.
The customer validated that the nitrile they were using was sulphur curing. We then discussed the technical specification for the para-aramid fabric that they were using: we can process fabric up to 1750mm – wider than their current fabric.
The next stage was a production trial of our standard specification. This is an RFL specification with a first dip using Grilbond technology. The customer suggested a trial of 100 metres, and they supplied the fabric to us for this test.
With our versatile machinery, we were able to run the trial quickly within a couple of weeks. As predicted, the adhesion was to the specification required and we fulfilled what the customer wanted.
