The effect of curing temperature increase and sulfur amount added were studied with natural and synthetic rubbers. Also, the effects of TMTD, MBTS and mixture of zinc soaps of high molecular fatty acids added to natural rubber were investigated respectively. The experimental results showed that, in the case of the conventional curing ($145^{\circ}C$), natural rubber, compared with synthetic rubber, gave higher values in elongation, tensile strength, cure rate, and lower values in modulus change. But, at high temperature curing ($180^{\circ}C$), natural rubber showed faster reversion rate, and higher heat build-up compared to synthetic rubber, than in the conventional curing. Also, natural rubber produced at high temperature showed severe degradation in hardness and tensile strength before heat-aging as well as in hardness, modulus and tensile strength after heat-aging. Improved reversion effect was obtained with natural rubber either by blending mixture of zinc soaps of high molecular acids or by applying semi-efficient vulcanization system.
