Need advice for vulcanizing shore A-70 rubber. Need advice for vulcanizing shore A-70 rubber. janeriksen (Industrial) (OP) 8 Jan 15 22:38 I need to know how much I shall use of each part of natural rubber and sulphur in order to make vulcanized rubber with a hardness of A-70. Also interested in which temperature and heating time. Are there any good online stores where I can buy natural rubber and sulphur in small amounts for testing it out? RE: Need advice for vulcanizing shore A-70 rubber. stancom (Specifier/Regulator) 11 Jan 15 12:47 A typical sulfur level will be between 2 and 3 parts per hundred parts of raw rubber, aided by an accelerator, but that will only give you a vulcanisate hardness of ca 35 t0 40 Shore A. You'll appreciate the need for a loading of filler and the choice will depend on the properties you need. A higher than normal sulfur level will certainly raise hardness but at 70 A the properties will be awful, ie in the dip between vulcanised rubber and ebonite. For samples I suggest you contact a friendly rubber company nearby, as you were advised to do in answers to your earlier 2011 enquiry.
