In case of duplicate questions the author will decide the winner. Today's winner is: SCOTT ISBELL, 11, Los Gates, Calif. Natural rubber is made from latex, a white fluid of the rubber tree. The latex is held in a network of tiny tubes under the bark of the tree. When the bark is cut, the white, milky juice oozes out. Tiny particles of rubber float in this liquid. Man has learned to manufacture latex by combining chemicals in certain ways. This rubber is called synthetic rubber. The kind of synthetic rubber produced in the largest amount is known as general-purpose rubber. Its two main ingredients are butadiene and styrene. Butadiene is a gas made from petroleum, and styrene is a liquid made from petroleum or coal. The butadiene and styrene are pumped into a large tank containing a soapy mixture. The soapy solution makes it easier for the rubber particles to form. A catalyst (a chemical that speeds up the reaction) is added. As the mixture in the tank is stirred it gradually changes to a milky white liquid. This is synthetic latex. Synthetic latex is very similar in appearance to the natural latex that comes from the rubber tree. When the synthetic latex has developed to the proper state, a chemical is added to stop the reaction. The latex is then pumped into another tank with acids and brine (salt water). The mixture is stirred to coagulate it. The coagulated piece of synthetic rubber look like gray crumbs. After being washed to remove any extra chemicals, the synthetic rubber is dried and pressed into bales. Basic synthetic rubber can be varied by adding other ingredients or combining the ingredients in different ways. 36 No. University FUN TIME The Riddle Box 1. When was Adam created? 2.
