Technically Classified Rubber—The Non-Rubber Content and The Measurement of Cure Rate


Since the volume application of Hevea rubber as a technical product, a system of market classification based on visual methods has been employed. This type of classification is not indicative of the technical properties or technical uniformity of the material. A recent paper by R. G. Newton, et al.
