Malaysia used to rank number 1 as a rubber producing country during the time when the British ruled the country. One of the main reasons the British asked the Indians to come to Malaya then was to work in the rubber estates as planting and tapping of rubbers were labour intensive.

If you are a student or just want to learn more about the history of Malaysian rubber, head for Rubber Research Institute Malaysia or RRIM located in Sungai Buloh. Go to the Exhibition Centre which is about 2 km away from the main entrance of the research station.

Some of the exhibits consist of products manufactured locally and abroad are on display here. There are a number of audio visual facilities at different exhibits that explain in greater details on the use of rubber.

  • Automotive Industry have benefited from this industry as the tyres and tubes are all made from rubber.
  • Industrial Rubber Goods.
  • General Rubber Goods.
  • Footwear.
  • Latex Products.

Plan to spend 1 hour or so here. You will realise that a lot of the products we use everyday to a certain extent has rubber content.
