Careers Project 2012
On the 16th of May 2012 our group of nine Lightning Reef and Eaglehawk students when to Motherson Elastamers were we were taught about rubber and how rubber was made and there was three main ingredients to put in to the mixture. The ingredients are Natural rubber that came from rubber trees, Carbon black and Oil. They get rubber of the rubber trees by doing a thing called taping. Taping is were they put a slit in the tree and then the resin from the rubber trees drips into a cup and that’s how they tap a rubber tree. The good thing was everyone enjoyed themselves.
