India-rubber Laboratory Practice

    Article metrics


    IT must be a great temptation to any chemist who writes about rubber at the present time to devote a considerable amount of attention to the views that are in the air on the constitution of this interesting substance, or substances, and to the bearing of recent developments in colloidal chemistry on the problems presented bv the preparation and properties of rubber. Dr. Caspari has expressly omitted all reference to these subjects, and has limited himself entirely to the analytical problems which arise in the ordinary routine practice of an industrial rubber laboratory, viz., the sampling and analysis of raw rubbers, the nature and properties of the various substances—rubber substitutes, fillers, pigments, etc.—used in preparing manufactured rubber, and finally the analysis of manufactured rubbers.
