In the majority of products based on vulcanised rubber, storage for a certain period inevitably induces changes in the physical properties of the stored products.
Consequently, these products may not have their ultimate performance characteristics if stored for a length of time before use (for example, an excess hardness, softening of the rubber or cracks and other surface deteriorations).
These changes may result from one particular factor or from a combination of factors, namely the effect of oxygen, ozone, light, heat and humidity.
The adverse effects of these factors may be minimised by a careful choice of the storage conditions.
