Rubber is a highly versatile material that is found in both natural and synthetic forms. Developing a synthetic version has revolutionised the way in which rubbed can be used and allows for large scale items to be made. It is a product that is used in many different sectors such as sport, health and manufacturing. Due to its elastic nature it can be used to make items from tyres for cars right through to wetsuit for those individuals that enjoy surfing and body-boarding.

When using natural rubber the process to collect the liquid latex from the tree and then converting this into rubber can be time consuming, which is why synthetic rubber is often preferred for large scale applications. You can find rubber used in aerospace, motoring, medicine and health as well as a variety of other industries.
