HANDMADE SEELAND RUBBER BOOTS

VULCANISATION

TESTING FOR LEAKS

SEELAND NATURAL RUBBER 52™

We only use crude rubber of the highest quality for Seeland rubber boots; this is your guarantee that your boots are very durable and will maintain their qualities, even by extremely low temperatures. Each piece of natural rubber is shaped and put together by hand over an aluminium last.

Seeland boots are vulcanised to ensure that they are completely waterproof. The vulcanisation process ”melts” into a single piece the different layers of natural rubber used in the boot. Vulcanisation takes place in a kiln, where the boot is heated to a temperature of 120-130°C for about an hour. One of the reasons for using multi-layered natural rubber is to reinforce the boot in those places where the wear will be greatest.

Seeland rubber boots are tested to make sure that they are waterproof. When tested, the boot is lowered into water, and air is then channelled into it. If air bubbles appear in the water, the rubber boot has a leak and it will be rejected. Only Seeland applies this unique test, and it is your guarantee of unrivalled quality. Remember to care for your rubber boots. Rinse them in water, dry them and treat them with Seeland Rubber Footwear Care. This way, they will last you longer, and the rubber will stay supple. You will find care products on page 100.
