The History of Elastic and Its Use in Clothing
The elastic is a small narrow loop of rubber or similar material that is used to tighten, hold and hold objects easily. It has the quality of stretching and then returning to its original shape. Elastic has different names like rubber bands, rubber bands, binders and lacquer.
The history of the elastic has its roots in thousands of years. The modern elastic band dates back to the middle of the 19th century. From the beginning, man knew that there were certain objects that would return to their original form when the pressure applied to them was removed.
At first, this bothered the man but with the invention of fire and the creation of the wheel, the man also thought of using elastics in his life. This property of elasticity was commonly shown by the animal parts, which man ate. This is how the first elastic cords were born, made of animal guts to keep things together. With the passage of time, the man realized that these elastic cords could also be used as weapons. When a bullet was loaded on these elastic ropes, they were launched through the air at high speed. This resulted in the invention of the bow and arrow.
Rubber is a very popular elastic material. Many of the products made of rubber are bounced, stretched and hit, and as they are elastic, they return to their original shape. Because of this property, people use rubber in many ways. It was named rubber because people discovered that it could rub pencil spots. Rubber was used by the early American Indians before Columbus even put his foot there. They called it Caoutchouc derived from the word cahuhchu which means wood that cries.
This substance was obtained from the sap of the rubber tree. The original rubber bands in the previous days were made from the latex sap of the rubber trees. However, nowadays the elastic bands are made of more modern technology and materials. The Mayans also added vines juice to the rubber sap to create a durable and elastic material to join things together. This was the first type of rubber band. Later in 1845 the modern rubber band was invented. In 1923, William Spencer began the first mass production of rubber bands.
Other elastic materials also have several uses. Rubber has several uses in the world today. The rubber is used for tires, elastic bands and other elastic and elastic objects. Elastic materials are also used in sports. The insulated and elastic balls are essential for many sports, since the non-elastic balls are deformed when they are used. The balls, volleyball balls and soccer balls have to be elastic so that they can reach their normal shape.
