Rubber is a building system for LaTeX documents. It is based on a routine that runs just as many compilations as necessary. The module system provides a great flexibility that virtually allows support for any package with no user intervention, as well as pre- and post-processing of the document. The standard modules currently provide support for bibtex, dvips, dvipdfm, pdftex, and makeindex.
This is an automated system for building LaTeX documents, with a modular structure that allows automatic dependency analysis, pre- and post-processing, handling of graphic file conversion, etc.
An eraser, usually made of caoutchouc or a synthetic rubber.
India rubber; caoutchouc; gum elastic; -- also called natural rubber.
Any substance, whether natural or synthetic, resembling India rubber with respect to its elasticity.
A low-cut overshoe made of natural or synthetic rubber, serving to keep the feet and shoes dry when walking in the rain or on a wet surface; -- usually used in the plural.
Crosslinked or vulcanized material that is capable of recovering from large deformations quickly and forcibly, and can be modified to a state in which it is essentially insoluble in boiling solvent, such as benzene, methyl ethyl ketone or ethanoltoluene azeotrope. See Natural Rubber, NR
Natural rubber or any synthetic, elastomeric material with physical properties similar to those of natural rubber.
a manufactured fibre, which is made up of a natural or synthetic rubber.
A general term used to describe wire insulations made of thermosetting elastomers, such as natural or synthetic rubbers, EPR, Neoprene, Hypalon, butyl rubber and others.
Flooring materials made up of natural or synthetic rubber rolled and heat cured into a final product.
The term embraces a large group of materials which have the ability, under certain conditions, to undergo large deformations and recover almost completely and instantaneously on release of the deforming force. This elasticity is due to the repetition of long molecular chains and cross links of the base polymer. The "first" rubber came from the tree "HEVEA BRASILIENSIS" and was called Indian or natural rubber. Its use can be traced to the Mayan Indian culture. Since the 1930's, at least 16 different man-made rubbers with different, improved and controlled molecular structures have been developed. Familiar types are neoprene, nitrile, butyl, silicone and urethane.
A material produced by the coagulation and drying of the latec which is contained in some species of trees. Because of its extreme elasticity this material is not suitable for painting with ordinary decorative paints.
A bouncy little material that recovers from large deformations quickly and forcibly. It is essentially insoluble - but can swell - in boiling solvent, such as benzene, methyl ethyl ketone, etc.
latex from trees (especially trees of the genera Hevea and Ficus)
contraceptive device consisting of a thin rubber or latex sheath worn over the penis during intercourse
a waterproof overshoe that protects shoes from water or snow
coagulated, elastic latex. Plants that produce elastic latexes are largely tropical. Commercial rubber is produced from latex from Hevea brasiliensis. We don't have any words starting with this letter.
A polymeric material which, at room temperature, is capable of recovering substantially in shape and size after removal of a force. May be natural or synthetic.
(flooring) Rubber is made from natural or synthetic rubber, fillers and pigments. It is available in single colours with relief patterns or marbled. It comes in sheet form or tiles cut from sheets. It has good wear properties, is resilient and tough, warm and quiet underfoot. It can be loose laid on concrete.
An elastic (natural or synthetic) material (e.g. silicone) used to provide waterproofing or moisture resistance. See O-ring. S-Z
An informal term referring to any number of elastomers, including latex, silicone, and polyvinylsiloxane.
Synthetic rubber, as opposed to natural rubber (obtained from the exudations of certain tropical trees), is derived from petroleum and natural gas. Because of its elasticity, resilience, and toughness, rubber is the basic constituent of the tires used in automotive vehicles, aircraft, and bicycles. Rubber is also used in electrical insulation, and because it is waterproof, it is a favoured material for shoe soles. Ss
A material that exhibits elastic properties that allow recovery from large deformations quickly and forcibly. A tough, waterproof substance obtained through polymeric synthesis or in natural form from the sap of various species of plants or trees.
A material that is capable of recovering from large deformations quickly and forcibly, and can be, or already is, modified to a state in which it is essentially insoluable (but can swell) in boiling solvent.
A common name for both naturally occurring and synthetically made elastomer.
A tough elastic material made from the latex of rubber trees, a natural polymer of a hydrocarbon.
An elastomer capable of rapid elastic recovery after being stretched to at least twice its length at temperatures form 0 to 150oF, at any humidity. Specifically, Hevea or natural rubber, the standard of comparison for elastomers.
Rubber is an elastic hydrocarbon polymer which occurs as a milky colloidal suspension (known as latex) in the sap of several varieties of plants. Rubber can also be produced synthetically.
