High ammonia concentrated NR latex with a 60% dry rubber content (DRC), polyalcohol ethylene oxide condensate (Terric 16A-16), sulfur, zinc oxide (ZnO), stearic acid, Voltamol, and bentonite were supplied from the Rubber Research Institute of Thailand (Thailand).
To this ethylene glycol (EG), a polyalcohol, was added at a ratio of 20/80 EG/CA, resulting in the formation of a stable complex as described in the literature [10, 20-22].

8,992,632 B2; Method has patented a cleaning composition that is comprised of surfactant system that contains a nonionic surfactant including an ethoxylated alcohol and/or an ethoxylated fatty acid ester, and an anionic surfactant; free water; and a solvent system comprising a polyalcohol. The cleaning composition is in a form of an invert emulsion, wherein the cleaning composition present in an amount from about 9-22 grams is characterized as exhibiting about a constant cleaning efficacy when added to 69 liters of exterior water and wherein the constant cleaning efficacy corresponds to a percentage stain removal that varies by less than 10%.
