Tire & Rubber Production (3011-TR)
Tire & Rubber Production - While tire products remain the predominant product of the rubber industry, there are many other products that use natural or synthetic rubber. These products include inner tubes, hoses, belts, rainwear, shoes, boots, insulation against sound or vibration, carpet backing, gaskets, seals, cables, steering wheels, bowling balls, latex gloves, and many other common products. The need for these products and their contribution to the U. S. economy is expected to continue well into the twenty-first century. Rubber is an unsaturated organic compound made of carbon and hydrogen. Natural rubber is collected from wild plants or plants cultivated on plantations. It is made from a secretion of certain plants that is called latex. It is tough, can stretch, and is a poor conductor of electricity, making it useful for a wide array of products, the most noteworthy of which are tires. The manufacturing of tire and rubber products utilize other materials for various stages of production and handling. This includes ABS and Styrene Slip sheets used on transport pallets and handling components.
