Solutions that fit like a glove
Challenge

In the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, the world’s largest manufacturer of rubber gloves unexpectedly ran into a production problem. The production problem involved the thin polymer layer that lines the inside of many gloves produced for the health care industry. The demand for rubber gloves had skyrocketed at the time, so solving the problem was of the utmost importance.

Solution

Looking for a quick fix, the customer decided  to produce their own polymer coating. Finding a satisfactory formulation, however, turned out to be much harder than anticipated. Fortunately, an expert team from Caldic Malaysia was able to assist them with the formulation, the preparation of a prototype product, and then troubleshooting as they took it through a trial run. The issue was solved, and the customer is now much better equipped to meet the increased demand for high quality rubber gloves.
