Vulcanization of rubber is a process of improvement of the rubber elasticity and strength by heating it in the presence of sulfur, which results in three-dimensional cross-linking of the chain rubber molecule bonded to each other by sulfur atoms.This process was invented by Charles Goodyear.Vulcanization of rubber is done to develop some specific qualities in natural rubber.Like-
1. It makes rubber quite resistant to the action of organic acids.
2. It makes rubber resistant to wear and tear.
3. The elasticity of rubber increases and it remains un effected over a wide range of temperature.
4. It makes rubber resistant to the attack of air.
