Historical Background

Ebonite is actually the brand name for vulcanite or hard rubber. It is a very hard rubber first obtained by Charles Goodyear by vulcanizing rubber for prolonged periods. It is about 30% to 40% sulfur. Its name comes from its intended use as an artificial substitute for ebony wood. It is often used in bowling balls, smoking pipe mouthpieces, fountain pen nib feeds, and saxophone and clarinet mouthpieces. Hard rubber is also often seen as the wheel material in casters. It is also commonly used in physics classrooms to demonstrate static electricity. It was used in the cases of automobile batteries for years, thus establishing black as their traditional color even long after stronger modern plastics were substituted.
