The natural rubber latex was vulcanized by two different process: (a) thermal process in the presence of sulfur; (b) alternative process using radiation (gamma rays and electrons beam). The comparative study of rubber goods quality (surgical gloves and balloons) was carried out by physical and chemical properties of pre vulcanized latex and physical and mechanics properties of rubber goods for two process.
