  • For the last century, the natural rubber market has been supplied almost entirely by
    rubber tapped as latex from the Brazilian, or para, rubber tree, Hevea brasiliensis. The burgeoning economies of China and India, and demand for cars, have over-stressed the existing rubber supply and a shortfall is currently underway, predicted to build to at least 1.5 million metric tons by 2020. In consequence, there has been renewed interest in the alternative rubber crops that are known to make high quality rubber, specifically guayule (Parthenium argentatum) and Buckeye Gold (Taraxacum kok-sahgyz) also known as TKS and Russian dandelion. In this paper, we present data on the performance of latex and rubber from different species, with direct comparisons made using the same compound and process. We also report the results of experiments using anti-Hevea latex-protein specific IgG from animals and IgE anti-Hevea from allergic humans.
