C4) Effect of non-rubber constituents on guayule and Hevea rubber intrinsic properties.
Guayule (Parthenium argentatum) is a renewable, non-food crop that requires little water usage, no pesticides and it is an alternative source of natural rubber because of its latex allergy friendly properties, unlike Hevea rubber.
Effect of Non-Rubber Constituents on Guayule and Hevea Rubber Intrinsic Properties--Shirin Mohammad Ali Monadjemi, Ohio State University 10:45 a.
While guayule rubber has the same molecular weight and general properties as Hevea rubber, it does not contain the proteins present in hevea rubber that can cause severe allergic reaction (Cornish, 1996).
Guayule rubber has qualities almost identical to those of natural rubber harvested from hevea rubber trees, making it a potentially valuable source for tire-grade rubber in commercial applications.
