Natural Rubber (NR)

Natural rubber (NR) is an elastic latex material harvested from Hevea and Ficus trees.

Natural Rubber (NR)

In its vulcanized form natural rubber has excellent mechanical properties exhibiting high tensile strength and high abrasion/tear resistant properties. Natural rubber is resistant to most organic salts, acids, alcohols and alkali solutions. This material is suited for light to medium commercial applications where exposure to severe temperature and chemical conditions are limited.

The transportation industry utilizes natural rubber extensively in tire manufacture, and a variety of vibration and sealing components. Other applications include hoses, foot-ware, toys, balloons, and vibration adsorption. Medical use has been reduced because of allergic concerns.
