Natural Rubber or India Rubber. Produced from latex drawn off from several trees, mostly Ficus elastica in Asia and Jatropha elastica in South America and the West Indies. Caoutchouc must be produced from latex locally and quickly, as it will coagulate soon after being drawn off. After it has been shipped to factories, it may be used to manufacture waterproof clothing or electrical insulators in it's current form, or vulcanized to produce a much more useful and elastic substance which can be used to manufacture tires.
