What is Rubber?


  Generally, we consider all the elastomers as rubbers in which dimensions undergo alterations largely by stressing, and also they can go to the original dimensions after removing the stress. These materials show glass transition temperature due to their amorphous structure. There are many types of rubbers or elastomers like natural rubber, synthetic polyisoprene, styrene butadiene rubber, nitrile rubber, polychloroprene, and silicone.

  However, natural rubber is the rubber that comes to our mind when considering rubbers. We get the natural rubber from the latex of rubber tree (Heveabrasiliensis). Also, cis-1, 4-polyisoprene is the structure of natural rubber. Even though silicone rubbers contain silicon in polymer chains instead of carbon, most of the rubbers contain polymer chains of carbon.

  In addition to that, rubber is useful for many applications like cookware, electronics, automotive applications etc., because of their elastic behaviour. As they are waterproof materials, they are useful as sealants, gloves etc. Rubbers or elastomers are excellent materials for insulating purposes.
