Transcript of RUBBER HOCKEY PUCKS

Rubber comes from a tree called Hevea
Brasiliensis or also known as the "rubber" tree. THE RUBBER HOCKEY PUCK AND HOWS ITS MADE. When a puck is made teams will have there logos or team name imprinted onto it. This is done with silk screen process with 4 colors of ink that is made for rubber.
Interesting fact: when hockey teams get their pucks they are frozen to reduce the bounce. When rubber goes to a factory they split it into 40 ft long tubes which is fed through a pultrusion machine. The making of a hockey puck A pultrusion machine will cut off the rubber into 4 in (10cm) pieces and placed into two molds that are heated then compressed together to make a souvenir or a practice puck. First, granular rubber is mixed with a special bonding mixture by hand. That mixture is added to molds by hand, the molds are heated then the rubber is compressed. This all takes place in room temperature. These pucks are sent to a room where their is a silk press that will put the team logo on it. These companies can make up to 5,000 a week. There you have your NHL hockey puck. LETS GO LEAFS! Before a puck is sent out to its destination they are tested to see how much they bounce and it they bounce to much they are recycled and used to make new pucks. Having a good company making your pucks is always nice so you don't have to worry about bad pucks. according to http://www.rerubber.com/why-rerubber/environmental-impact/ if I'm not mistaken it says that rubber is recyclable so it does not have an impact to the environment. http://www.rerubber.com/why-rerubber/environmental-impact/ http://www.madehow.com/Volume-6/Hockey-Puck.html#b gets full credit for this presentation THE END THANKS FOR WATCHING!!! ;-)
