What Is the Rubber Melting Point?

At about 180 degrees Celsius, rubber starts to melt. There is a chance that rubber will harden as a result of crystallisation at low temperatures, such as 5 to 6 C. 20 C is the ideal temperature for rubber.

Plant material is used to make natural rubber. Latex, a milky secretion from the Hevea brasiliensis tree, is used to make rubber. Rubber is used in the creation of tyres, footwear, and gloves, among many other things.

Either casting latex or submerging a mould in it is used to create these objects. Through a procedure that involves devulcanization with chemicals and grinding used rubber, waste rubber can be recovered.
