CVC Thermoset Specialties' Nitrile Latex business is the premier North American manufacturer of specialty butadiene and butadiene-acrylonitrile based latexes, used in niche applications including paper, abrasives and tape, adhesives, specialty coatings, coated fabrics, coal tar sealing binders and leather.

We have a long heritage in this technology, dating back to the development of synthetic rubber latexes in the 1940s by our predecessor organization, BFGoodrich.  For more than 50 years, the Nychem™ product line was sold under the Hycar® brand, which was well known for its quality and superior technology foundation. Emerald rebranded the product line following the divestiture of the business from its predecessor company. These products are manufactured at our ISO-9001 certified operation in Akron, Ohio.
