Natural Rubber

Natural rubber is a bio elastomer which is made from the milky sap of tropical plants (spurge/euphorbia). Simply put, the rubber is produced from the coagulated sap by means of vulcanisation. This natural material is soft and springy; it is well suited for shoe soles, vibration dampers or dough scrapers. Natural rubber is a renewable material but it is not a regional product. We use natural rubber for the feet of Profile Chair. Those are manufactured by Gummiwerk Otto Körting GmbH in Hameln.
