Ebonite is a very hard, inflexible version of rubber invented by Charles Goodyear in 1839. It's made from natural rubber and sulphur, treated with heat in a process known as vulcanisation. Ebonite is durable, chemically stable, machinable, mouldable, polishes to a natural high gloss and is an excellent electrical insulator. It's name comes from the natural wood Ebony which it closely resembles. Ebonite was used in just about every aspect of life from the 1800s to the 1960s when it was gradually replaced by petroleum based plastics. Ebonite was used to make knife handles, casters, combs, hairbrushes, buttons, jewelry, bowling balls, electric plugs, smoking pipes, fountain pen bodies and nib feeds, car batteries and everything from domestic power plugs to giant mains supply insulators. Ebonite is still used for guitar picks, saxophone and clarinet mouthpieces because of it's unique acoustic properties. Ebonite is also a brand name of ebonite bowling balls manufactured by Ebonite International, a U.S. sporting goods company. Although it is an extremely durable material, high heat, strong light or prolonged exposure to water can adversely affect the polished surface of ebonite.
