Rubber Industry Definition And Classification

The rubber latex of plants such as rubber trees and rubber grasses is extracted and processed into elastic, insulating, impervious, and air-permeable materials. High elastic polymer compound. Divided into two kinds of natural rubber and synthetic rubber. Natural rubber is made by extracting gum from plants such as rubber tree and rubber grass; synthetic rubber is obtained by polymerization reaction of various monomers. Rubber products are widely used in various aspects of industry or life.

Classification of rubber products

There is no uniform scientific classification of rubber products, and it is customarily divided into tires, industrial products and sanitary products.

First, tire rubber products:

1 motor vehicle tires - including heavy-duty tires, car tires, engineering tires, industrial tires, agricultural tires, motorcycle tires, etc.;

2 Non-motorized tires - including bicycle tires, tires, carriage tires, truck tires, etc.;

3 Special tires - including aviation tires, artillery tires, tank tires, etc.;

Second, rubber industry products rubber products:

1 tape - transport belts, conveyor belts, etc.;

2 Hose - cloth hose, braided hose, winding hose, knitting hose, special hose, etc.;

3 model products - rubber seals, shock absorbers, etc.;

4 Press out products - pure hoses, door and window seals, all kinds of rubber profiles, etc.;

5 tape products - life and protective tape products (such as raincoats), industrial tape products (such as mining duct), transportation and storage products (such as oil tanks), lifesaving products (such as life rafts);

6 Cots: printing roller, printing roller, paper roller, etc.

7 rigid rubber products: electrical insulation products (battery shell), chemical anti-corrosion linings, microporous hard plastic (microporous separators), etc.;

8 rubber insulation products - wires, cables, etc.;

9 Latex products - impregnated products, sponges, extruded products, injection molded products, etc.;

Third, sanitary products rubber products:

1 life style supplies - rubber shoes, rubber balls, eraser rubber, rubber lines, etc.;

2 medical and health supplies - equipment (a variety of catheters, washing balls), protective products, pharmaceutical packaging accessories, human medical rubber products, etc.;

Among them, the production value and the consumption of rubber accounts for an important position in tires, rubber shoes, adhesive tapes, and hose rubber products. Sometimes these four types of rubber products are called rubber groceries.

Rubber products according to raw materials, rubber products can be divided into dry glue products and latex products in two categories. All rubber products made from dry rubber are collectively referred to as dry rubber products such as tires, tapes, and hoses. The output of such products accounts for more than 90% of the output of rubber products. Products made directly from latex are collectively referred to as latex products such as latex gloves, balloons, and sponges. The output of such products is less than 10% of the total output of rubber products.

Rubber products are divided according to production methods. Rubber products can be divided into model products and non-model products. All rubber products that are shaped and vulcanized in metal models can be collectively referred to as model products, such as tires, rubber sealing products, and rubber shock-absorbing products. However, in the rubber industry, molded products are customarily understood as rubber molded products other than tires. Products that are not shaped and vulcanized in the model are collectively referred to as non-model products such as tapes, hoses, tapes, and rollers. Some rubber products (such as rubber shoes, etc.) can be produced by model method and non-model method.
