    Abstract

    THE RUBBER INDUSTRY ESSENTIALLY STARTED IN 1839 when Charles Goodyear discovered vulcanization (the curing process). Since this date, a large industry has grown that manufactures thousands of rubber products such as tires, hoses, belts, seals, gaskets, bearings, bushings, mounts, etc. In fact, rubber is essential for a modern industrialized economy [1].
