The Value and Use of Rubber Trees


The rubber tree can be used for appreciation. Its leaves are spacious and glossy. It can be maintained at home as a bonsai, can decorate and design homes, and purify the environment. It can also purify indoor air. Rubber trees can absorb smoke very strongly, and can also remove formaldehyde, toxic gases, hydrogen fluoride, etc., which can provide us with a healthier living environment.

In addition, the rubber tree contains pure natural rubber, which is the most important green rubber plant in nature, and has a very large function in organic chemistry. The key raw material for making rubber is natural rubber. Natural rubber is made from the coagulation and drying of latex discharged from rubber trees when they are tapped. Natural rubber is widely used in industrial production, national defense and security, transportation, medical treatment because of its strong ductility and good insulation properties, ductility, waterproof and fireproof, gas insulation, compressive strength and wear resistance. It has a wide range of uses in the health industry and daily life.

Seed pressed oil is the raw material for the manufacture of paints and soaps. Rubber kernels can be used to make chemical fibers. Rubber forest belongs to the sustainable development of subtropical mountain forest ecosystem and is a zero-pollution and renewable ecological resource. In the 1980s, the tree cover dominated by rubber trees in Hainan Province created a good atmosphere for water conservation and sustainable development of soil and water, which not only further increased the forest coverage rate, but also improved indoor environmental standards and maintenance. Biodiversity in tropical climates has played a key role.
