Laminated natural rubber latex (NR) latex for mould cleaning application was prepared by arranging half-cured latex sheets with various thicknesses of core layer. Laminated layers consist of outer layer (NR latex films with cleaning agent) and core layer (waste natural NR latex film). The core layer with three different thickness and control thickness of outer layer are prepared through casting method with different thickness. The effects of different thickness of core layer with different moulding temperature of 120°C, 140°C and 160°C on tensile and swelling properties of laminated NR films were investigated. The tensile test was carried out to acquire good interfacial adhesion between the laminates films. From the results obtained, sample 10L shows the highest tensile strength at 120°C. While at 140°C and 160°C moulding temperature, the highest tensile strength shows by sample 3OL.
