Since the discovery of vulcanization of rubber in the early 1900's, it has been the leader of material for production of an array of technical products and household products requiring exceptional qualities of durability and elasticity. Natural rubber is tapped from rubber wood plantations especially planted for this purpose.
Rubber today is used extensively in household, commercial and industrial products. The durability and elasticity is well demonstrated by the use of rubber in vehicle tyres. Natural rubber is tapped from rubber trees in special purpose plantations. It is therefore an environmentally safe and sound process.
