How are erasers made?


1 Answer

Rubber is mixed with pigments, vegetable oil, pumice, and sulfur. This mixture is heated, causing the sulfur to vulcanize it, making it more stable. The mixture is forced through a die to form a long cylinder. The cylinder is repeatedly cut, as it emerges, forming plugs to attach to pencils.
