RIPE Inflatable packers brief introction to rubber


Rubber once solely produced from the sap of the Para Rubber Tree (Hevea braziliensis) and still in wide use today, initially presents as a milky colloidal suspension, or latex. In this state it is a naturally occurring hydrocarbon that may be called a polyterpene. This elastic hydrocarbon polymerwas greeted upon its arrival in Europe,with an admixture of amazement and horror (some thinking its properties the work of the devil!). Following significant research and experimentation during the nineteenth century, we come today to nearly two dozen rubber types, some fully synthetic, others less so.
