Our shockcords have a braided cover and a natural rubber core. The ropes are made to have 100% stretch, have good abrasion resistance and are used for many applications.
Rubber is harvested mainly in the form of the latex from the rubber tree or others. The latex is a sticky, milky colloid drawn off by making incisions in the bark and collecting the fluid in vessels in a process called “tapping”. The latex then is refined into rubber that is ready for commercial processing.
