Bales of natural rubber are formed from the Hevea Brasiliensis tree, whereas synthetic rubber comes from crude oil polymers, many of which are also used in the plastics industry. These rubbers are combined at specific ratios in large, industrial mixers with other ingredients like fillers, antidegradants, and curing agents to achieve particular performance traits.
