comes from Hevea rubber
, which is tapped from a tree grown in tropical regions of Asia.
Louis, MO and Sumitomo Rubber Industries, Kobe, Japan (SRI) have entered into an R & D agreement to accelerate the development of Taraxicum kok-saghya (TKS) as an alternative source of natural rubber to replace materials from Hevea rubber
Consumer and medical products made from Hevea rubber
latex can cause a Type 1 Allergic reaction in some people.
The causes of the meteoric rise in the prevalence of latex allergy included increased use of protective medical gloves due to universal precautions and the resultant accelerated latex production and manufacturing of hevea rubber
The ergonomic designs deliver style and comfort to customers worldwide with their timeless, yet modern, pairing of distinctive colorful nubuck with hevea rubber
Mattoso, "Thermogravimetric studies of decomposition kinetics of six different IAC Hevea rubber
clones using Flynn-Wall-Ozawa approach," Plastics, Rubber and Composites, 35 (1), pp.
While the first century of exploring domestic alternatives to Hevea rubber
from Asia and petroleum-based synthetic rubber has been marked by uncertainty, we've been able to unlock the Rosetta Stone through genetics, agronomics and sustained research," Fraley said.
C4) Effect of non-rubber constituents on guayule and Hevea rubber
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.
