A test measuring the increase in viscosity of a latex after addition of a zinc tetra-amine acetate solution.
The electrical potential difference between the surface (strictly the slip plane) of a latex particle and the bulk of the aqueous phase. Theoretically this is a measure of the colloidal stability of a latex, i.e. the higher the zeta potential the higher the stability of the latex. However, this theory does not appear to apply to natural latex concentrate.
Zinc (oxide) Sensitivity
Response of a latex or latex compound to the addition of zinc oxide or other zinc containing chemicals. The more sensitive a latex is, the more unstable it becomes when zinc compound is added.
