Elastomers are broadly classified, based on the source of origin as Natural Rubber (NR) and Synthetic Rubbers (SR) and further the synthetic rubbers are divided into general purpose and special purpose according their applications. All the elastomers require curing to convert the plastic substances into useful elastomeric product. The curing system introduces chemical bonds between the elastomer molecules and thereby it develops a network. The curing characteristics are measured using rheometer and the crosslink density by chemical methods. The rate of cure, type of cross link, and the intensity of crosslink decide the curing time required for shaping a particular elastomeric product. The major elastomeric curing systems are sulphur, peroxide, metal oxides, resins, amines, soap and metal stearates. In this articles the selection of cure systems along with suitable accelerators and activators, the mechanism of chemical cross links, the relative thermal stability of such cross links and the effect of such cross links on physical, mechanical, thermal and dynamic mechanical properties of elastomeric product would be discussed in details..
