1. The origin of the world rubber industry
In 1839, American Charles Goodyear invented the vulcanization method of rubber, which solved the problem that raw rubber became sticky and brittle, and made rubber have higher elasticity and toughness. Only then did rubber enter the practical stage of industry. Rubber vulcanization was invented by adding sulfur and basic lead carbonate into rubber. When heated or exposed to sunlight, the rubber products were no longer as easy to soften and stick as they used to be, and had good elasticity. In 1888 Dunlop invented the pneumatic tire. The automobile tire industry developed rapidly and the demand for rubber increased sharply.
2. Origin of China's rubber industry
In 1915, Guangdong rubber gum company, the first rubber enterprise in China, was founded. This marks the birth of China's rubber industry. In October 1934, Shanghai Greater China Rubber Factory began to produce automobile tires on the basis of bicycle tire production. This marks the birth of China's automobile tire industry.
