It’s not a long time that human use rubber. The demand of rubber is a explosive growth since modern times. Rubber is a very important material in our daily life. Without rubber, we can’t drive our cars, we will be hurt if we fall over on the playground. We even can’t remove the pencil marks without rubber. We can see rubber is indispensable in our life.
Rubber is so important to us, do you really know it?
Rubber is a high elasticity polymer material with reversible deformation. It has strong elasticity in the indoor temperature. It has huge torsion with the external force, but it can return to normal when eliminate the external force. That’s because the molecular chain of rubber could be cross-linked. When bear the external force and become torsion, cross-linked rubber can return rapidly. In the meantime, it has excellent mechanical property and chemical stability. Rubber is a basic material of industry. It’s the common material to produce tire, hose, belt, wire and other products.
Rubber belongs to amorphous polymer with a low vitrification exchange temperature. While it has large molecular weight which in more than several hundred thousand. So rubber has excellent performance, which is the main reason that people rely on it.
According to raw material, rubber can be divided into natural rubber and synthetic rubber. Natural rubber is made from emulsion. Part of the non-rubber ingredient reserves in the solid natural rubber. Synthetic rubber is a synthetic polymer with high elasticity, one of the 3 main synthetic materials.
According to form, there are raw rubber, emulsion, liquid rubber and powder rubber. Emulsion is the colloidal state aqueous dispersion. Liquid rubber is the oligomer of rubber and it’s sticky liquid before vulcanizing. Powder rubber is processing the rubber to powder to benefit the feed and process.
According to usage, there are general rubber and special rubber. General rubber has excellent combination property and wide range of application. While special rubber means it has special property like NBR resists oil and neoprene resists aging.
