Rubber – a Discovery that Changed the World

Early days

Hard to believe when you jump into your car in the morning, take the bus, or rev-up your tractor that it’s been more than a half-millennium since Italian explorer Christopher Columbus noticed some kids in Haiti playing with a ‘rubber’ ball. Later, during an expedition in Ecuador in 1736, French explorer Charles Marie de La Condamine became the first Westerner to encounter rubber actually being processed. It was still crude rubber and only once it made its way across Europe and then the U.S., did rubber processing advance and change the world.
Evolution of Rubber Industry

 

The modern rubber industry kicked off with the help of Charles Goodyear, who discover the "heat curing method" in 1839; the huge need to transport goods and passengers that came out of the Industrial Revolution of the 1830’s; R. W. Thomson who tried to develop pneumatic tires for trucks in 1845; and J. B. Dunlop whose 1888 pneumatic tires for bicycles and tricycles became the automobile industry standard around 905 after various improvements. Pneumatic tires were probably the most important invention in the rubber industry.
Wheels in Motion

Eventually, people realized that rubber had more potential usage than just for rubbing pencil marks off paper and today, it is used in a diverse range of applications and products. The biggest consumers of rubber are the tire and tube industries. In fact, it might be said that the demands stemming from the need for safe tires, spearheaded many technological advances in the rubber manufacturing process. It also improved the rubber industry as a whole enabling it to meet the global demand for tire and technical products.
