Natural rubber is also called India rubber or calk. It is initially produced and consists of polymers of the organic compound isoprene with minor impurities of other organic compounds plus water. Nowadays, Malaysia is leading producer of rubber forms of polyisoprene that are used as a natural rubber are classified as elastomers natural rubber is being used by many manufacturing companies for the production of rubber products and currently rubber is harvested mainly in the SAP or later of the tree.
The latex is a sticky milky drawn off by make incisions into the bark and collecting them in the process of taping. The latex then is refined into a rubber ready for commercial processing. Natural rubber is being used extensively in many applications and products either alone or in combination with other materials. In most of its useful forms it has a long stretch ratio and show high resilience and is extremely water proof. Compared to vulcanized rubber has very relative uses. Like adhesive insulating and friction tapes. But for Tree rubber it used as an insulating blankets and footwear’s. Vulcanize rubber on the other hand has numerous application. Resistance to abrasion make a softer kinds of rubber valuable for the tracks of vehicle tires and conveyor belts and makes rubber valuable for pump housings and piping uses in the handling of the abrasive sludge.
The flexibility of rubbers is often used in tires, hoses, and rollers. For a wide variety of devices ranging from domestic closer ringers to printing presses. Its elasticity makes it suitable for various kinds shock absorber and for specialized machinery mountings designed to reduce vibration being relatively impermeable. Today rubber is useful in the manufacturer of air balloon, balls, and cushion.
The resistance of rubber to water into the action of most fluid have led to its used to rain were diving gears and chemical and medicinal tubing and as aligning for storage tanks and processing equipment and railroads tank cars because of their electrical resistance. Soft rubbers are used for as insulation and for protective glass, shoes and blankets. While hard rubber is used for articles such as telephone housings, parts of radio sets, meter and other electrical instruments where the coefficient of friction which is high on dry surfaces and low on wet surfaces led to the use of rubber for both power transmission belting.
And the application will go and go more as long as there is plastic on your instrument!
