|Title:||Creaming skim natural rubber latex for encapsulation of urea fertiliser|
|Citation:||Plastics, Rubber and Composites Processing and Applications. Vol.28, No.7 (1999), 357-362|
|Abstract:||Skim natural rubber latex has been characterised before crosslinking with γ-radiation. Micrographs of γ-vulcanised skim particles embedded in polystyrene revealed a semi-interpenetrating polymer network morphology of fine rubber-polystyrene particles surrounded by membrane layer. Creamed skim latex was prepared by addition of 15-45 phr sodium alginate and further used for encapsulation of urea fertiliser. Non-spherical capsules containing an homogeneous urea dispersion were obtained. © 1999 IoM Communications Ltd.|
