Strong and hard (depends on degree of vulcanisation) Low Less elastics Strength and hardness Weak and soft (polymer chain of rubber will break when rubber is over stretched. (reduction of number of double UV light (presence of many bonds per rubber molecule) double bonds per rubber molecules) 14. Poor resistant to heat Resistant to heat Resistant to heat Oxidation Resistant to oxidation Easily oxidised by oxygen. .
