MONDAY, MARCH IT. 1941 * mi mm 11! IN o. s, j Large Scale Production of j Synthetics Would Start! T r ' In emergency | NEW YORK. (UP) —Am rubber tire, petroleum, anil chemical industries today are ready to produce synthetic rufcbw on u large scale in event supplies of natural rubber are cut off by closing of Par Eastern shipping.' Coiisumpiion of natural rubber by the United States, world's largest user, runs around 600.000 tons annually. Most of this comes from the Par East from cultivated rub• ber plantations. Rubber first came from Central America where it was known in the ancient Maya civilization. Shortly after Charles Goodyear invented the vulcanization process in 1844. the crude rubber came from wild rubber trees in Brazil. Then the trees were grown in the Dutch East Indies and Malaya, our present sources of .supply. Until the present war broke out. the average man seldom heard of synthetic rubber. The Germans j produced a synthetic in the World j War. Their first manufactured rubber was made from coal and it cost about S30 a pound. tires made from it were placed on Kaiser Wilhelm's private car and , they worked just fine until the cat- stopped. Then it was necessary to jack up the wheels because the synthetic would flatten out under dead weight. Runa First in Germany Germany later penecceu a rubber making process by using petroleum as a base. Tnis was called Buna, the "BIT from btitadaine. the bnsic raw material, and "NA' 1 from natrium, the German word for sodium which was used as a catalytic agent in the chemical process. Standard Oil Company (New Jersey) has the German buna patents, m addition H has Us own synthetic called butyl, considered better adapted tor general rubcer purposes. Many other new names have sprung up in this rush to make rubber synthetics. There are B. F. Goodrich Company's Ameripol and Koro.seal; du Font's Neoprene; Goodyear's Chemigum. Dow Chemical's Thiokol; Union Carbide's Vinyon; Phillips Petroleum's Hycar made by Hydrocarbon Chemical & Rubber Company, formed by Goodrich and Phillips."

Some of the synthetics are not usable for tires because they cio not vulcanize. Manufacture of synthetic tires already is under way. The main ingredient of synthetic rubber, butadiene, is obtained through a cracking process from petroleum. This crackinu process breaks down the oil to a mixture of simple molecules from which can ba .separated a gas which tin- ner pressure liquefies to produce ' butadiene. Milky Emulsion Made Under one process this butadiene i-s mixed with other ingredients obtained from natural ga.s and air and then made into a milky emulsion, using soap. Upon 'heating and agitation, these ingredients react, to form an emulsion of synthetic rubber similar to the latex obtained from rubber-producing trees. From there the process are the same as in handling natural rubber. The butadiene can be produced anywhere oil supplies and processes arc available, and many of the oil and chemical companies are making this essential for the tire industry. Synthetic rubber has all the advantages of natural rubber and some distinct advantages of its j own, chemists point out. For example, it can be used for .su:h an article as gasoline hose whereas ! natural rubber dissolves in this use. i It also is invaluable in lining gaso- j line tanks of airplanes to make them 'bullet-proof. The one drawback to use of synthetic rubber tires is the ' high cost. However, this could be overcome if the product were placed in production on a large scale. Demonstration Club News Notes !
