You can order our Inkoswiss products with a latex surface coating. This makes our latex diaper pants more resistant to creams and oils. The rubber pants treated with the Surface Coating are therefore suitable for people who suffer from skin irritation in the upper leg area.
With the surface coating process, the surface of the natural rubber latex is sealed, giving the latex a smooth silky surface which ceases to stick to itself. In addition the typical smell and rustling sound of the latex is reduced by this surface treatment. The material becomes easy to care for and is less susceptible to staining.
The surface coating eliminates most of the docking points for radicals that can damage the latex. This makes oxidation of the material more difficult and increases the durability of the rubber pants significantly.
Suitable for allergy sufferers
The surface treatment immobilises allergenic proteins which are bound in the latex. This makes our products also wearable for people with a latex allergy. However, we recommend requesting a surface-treated material sample in order to rule out any risks. Please send us a message if you would like to receive a material sample. You can find the link to our contact form here.
The disadvantages of the treatment are that the surface is modified in such a way that it is almost impossible to glue the products and repair them.
Those who love the typical scent of natural latex will be disappointed. The fragrance of the latex changes and it takes a while until the familiar smell from the untreated layers of the latex comes out again.
The feel of the latex also changes. It appears firmer or stiffer and becomes softer again when worn for a longer period of time.
