Vulcanising

Vulcanising or vulcanisation refers to a chemical process in which rubber is processed by adding sulphur and applying pressure and heat so that it acquires optimal elasticity and resistance to extreme weathering conditions, a property which counts especially in car tyres. Discovered completely accidentally in 1839 by the American chemist Charles Goodyear, this method is used for producing rubber and is applied primarily in the tyre industry. The plastic characteristic of the natural rubber is transformed into an elastic characteristic as a result of vulcanisation.
