Latex Info

 

Manufacturing latex
The latex range is manufactured in three ways.

1. Manufacturing stitched latex:
When manufacturing stitched latex, the prefabricated, cut garments are stitched together. This gives a latex garment that adapts very well to the body.

2. Manufacturing moulded latex:
When manufacturing moulded latex, ceramic, metal or even glass moulds are immersed in liquid latex before being removed and cooled or dried. This process is repeated several times until the garment has the desired thickness.

3. Manufacturing glued latex:
Manufacturing glued latex is a very quick and easy process. The garment segments that have been cut from finished latex or moulded latex pieces are glued together with a rubber adhesive. This process allows the latex to adjust to the body perfectly.


 

Material thickness

 

0.4 mm for gloves, masks, socks, tops, stockings, basques, dresses, skirts, knickers, overalls, bras, shorts, leggings, pants and bodysuits
0.6 mm mainly for corsets, corsages, blindfolds, knickers, gags, open bras, suspender belts, leashes, gloves


1.2 mm for belts, blindfolds, gags
1.8 mm for collars, leg or handcuffs, SM accessories
2.0 mm for blood pressure monitor cuffs

The higher thicknesses of up 2 mm are used for various latex accessories.
These are also of the standard strength for moulded latex clothing, as they range from 0.25 mm - 0.75 mm and the glued latex clothing comes in thicknesses of 0.15 mm - 0.4 mm.


Latex properties

The 100% natural latex clothing is very comfortable to wear and feels like a second skin on the body. The strength of the material has a particular effect on the stretchability and elasticity, as the thicker the latex is, the less elastic it becomes. Contact with fats, oils and UV light must be avoided, and the garments must be properly maintained and stored; failure to do so can accelerate the deterioration process or even damage the material.


 


Examples of latex clothing adaptations

Zips:

Zips are glued on the left side of garments. Additional reinforcement rings on the zips provide extra support. Additional rivets are attached at the critical points, e.g. at the opening of the zip.


Glue lines:

Latex clothing is generally manufactured using glue, as in most cases the garment segments are overlapped and glued or sealed from the left using an additional latex strip. Skirt hems, necklines and corsets are usually glued back, giving the material extra support. To adapt the latex perfectly to the body, particular areas are also reinforced.


Metal parts:

The metal parts on the latex are strengthened using latex strips and are therefore a very snug fit, so that the material cannot tear. All metal elements on the latex are nickel-free.


Corsages and corsets:

Corsets and corsages come with sturdy bones to ensure a good shape.
 And the eyelets on the corsages and corsets used for lacing are also strengthened by glueing back.


 


 

Colours:

 

The latex clothing is available in three colour combinations: Red, white and

transparent color1or in a two-tone colour combination bicolor1 e.g. black-red, transparent-black,
