Answer is: It is made from the polymerization of a short chain of styrene molecules. Latex can be found naturally on Earth, but it can also be synthesized using polymers through a process called polymerization. In polymerization, monomers of styrene molecules, emulsified with surfactants, are combined or linked together to make a long chain. Synthetic latex is used in paint and glue because of its ability to dry up into a thin film without releasing a lot of toxic solvents.
