I’ve never had the slightest idea that there are other terms for rubber. Well, we all know its elastic but I thought they are still called rubbers.
Also called India rubber, natural rubber, gum elastic, caoutchouc. a highly elastic solid substance, light cream or dark amber in color, polymerized by the drying and coagulation of the latex or milky juice of rubber trees and plants, especially Hevea and Ficus species.”
Why do they call it India rubber? Does that mean that the production of rubber itself was done in India? What if there are rubber trees from let’s say, Malaysia, will it also be called Malaysia Rubber?
Well whatever they call it, we all know what rubber is, which is good and somehow important because its a part of our daily lives.
