Rubber is a material derived directly from nature. It is secured from the bark of a tree. Oh, and they call this the rubber tree. In certain parts of the world there are huge plantations, deliberately being harvested to supply the world’s domestic, commercial and industrial markets with its fair share of rubber. Industrialists in their related industries will have a vested interest in the rubber lined pipe. Why is this?
The raw and natural material on its own is already acting as a strong buffer. When it is broken down and processed into hybrid form, it is given further strength-inducing properties. On both the commercial and industrial level, the strength that refined rubber provides is coveted. No vehicle, no matter how small or lightweight, a two-wheeled bicycle for instance, no matter how heavy, the huge and heavy passenger aircraft, is without its rubberized wheels.
Not only does the rubber act as a strong buffer against external intrusions, it provides beneficial cushioning effects too. This can be found in the rubber lined pipe as well. It may well be that this pipe forms part of a huge piston-like system that is processing materials almost non-stop. A good example would be that of the power producing plant, it matters not whether it is processing raw coal, converting water into hydrogen fuel, creating biofuel from natural or agricultural crops, or generating large volumes of wind sourced from the propellers of those giant wind propellers usually only found in remote and secured areas of the rural countryside.
Rubber provides small to medium-sized industrialists with a welcome buffer against rust and corrosion. Rubber on its own does not corrode nearly as easily as would metal, stainless steel, or even cast iron and aluminum.
