Para Rubber Is Used In
Why Is Para Rubber Better?
The enormous increase in the commercial demand
for rubber, has led to great activity during the last
few years in rubber planting and rubber thus grown
is known as "plantation" rubber. Enormous quan
tities of which are contributing to the world's sup
ply. "Wild" rubber obtained from trees thirty to
fifty years old, however, is considered superior to
"plantation" rubber, because it possesses
Greater Tensile Strength
The finest "wild" rubber obtainable is known as
Para rubber, so named from the Para province of
Brazil, South America.
Only "Wild" rubber from old trees, the very
best grade of up-river Para, is used in the making of
Thermoid Croled Compound Castings
This grade of rubber is comparatively scarce and to
get it we must pay pr mium prices.
