Where is rubber found?
Rubber is naturally made from the sap of rubber trees.These grow in tropical climates such as Malaysia. We can also make synthetic rubbers, starting with substances from crude oil. Natural rubber has few uses in its untreated state, being a very soft substance. Examples include insulation and adhesives. Most rubber is hardened by the process of vulcanisation which cross links the molecules to make the substance harder. It then has many applications such as vehicle tyres, air hoses and rainwear.

yes it is it takes only about 2 weeks to decompose
They collect latex from the rubber tree by tapping it and let it drip into a bucket and wait till it stops. It is then processed and various chemicals added, predominately su…lphur to allow it to be hard and still flexible at the same time.

The rubber trees are most likely found in Thailand.
The basis of all rubbers are long simple chains - they are polymers - in natural and most man-made ones, that is a carbon chain, in silicone rubbers the repeat unit is S…i-O. Most of what is attached to that chain are usually carbon and hydrogen-containing groups but almost anything can be included into the rubber molecules if particular functionality is introduced into the attached groups. Cross-linking of carbon-based rubber in particular can be achieved by reacting them with polyvalent elements such as sulphur.
you make an incision deep enough to cut through the latex vessals.
