Informacion sobre Latex

Hevea is a tropical tree from which latex is extracted through a systematic treatment of bleeding. This process involves making a cut at an angle through the crust, deepening to the cambium. A small vessel that hangs on the tree collects the latex which flows from the wound.

That white, viscous liquid, has two particular virtues, the first being that has a high resistance and the second is an excellent adhesiveness.

This wonderful material has opened new doors in research, and footwear to join this trend known. In PEGAS Finishes Latex we have incorporated our finishing systems, creating a combination of flexibility and resistance only.
