Description

A page from the "New Zealand home journal", January 1943, with the word RUBBER in large lettering, above an illustration of a pile of rubber goods waiting for recycling.

Because of the war, the usual source of rubber, from Malaya, was now no longer available. In 1942, the ‘New Zealand herald’ (22 April 1942, page 4) reported as follows: “Reid (N.Z.) Rubber Mills, Limited, Auckland, said that new plant had been installed at the New Zealand mill for processing again old rubber, and it would be working in a few days. No use had hitherto been made of old rubber in New Zealand, because there had been no plant to deal with it. The second-hand rubber would be used not for the manufacture of articles that required a high quality of rubber, but for making hard rubber articles, such as storage battery cases, and other goods. Its use would relieve the demand for raw rubber”.
