Abstract Low-protein content natural rubber latexwas produced by using a nonionic surfactant-polyethyleneglycol (PEG). Extractable protein content of natural rubberlatex was found to decrease with PEG treatment andreduction increased with increase in the molecular weightof PEG. The low-protein latex samples were characterizedby tensile testing, Fourier transform infrared and thermogravimetricanalysis. The results have shown 35% reduction in the extractable protein content, without any compromiseon the mechanical properties of the latex; however,thermal stability of low-protein latex was found to bereduced marginally with PEG treatment.
