Ribbed Smoked Sheet Rubber (RSS Rubber) is a form of raw natural rubber produced mainly in Sri Lanka by small and medium scale rubber growers. It is made from natural rubber latex which is treated and then made to coagulate. The latex is formed into sheets using a simple machine and is then air dried or smoked in ovens. Adopted mainly due to the simplicity and low cost of production, RSS rubber is mainly used by the tyre industry.
The rubber industry is one of the most developed and robust industries in Sri Lanka manufacturing product varieties from apparel and tires to raw rubber, rubber sheets, with the best quality guarantee from the exporters.
