Standard Malaysian rubber 20 (SMR20)

 SMR20 is a revolutionary change in the grading and presentation of natural rubber in the struggle with synthetic rubber. Hence the  SMR20 scheme has a crucial role to play in the process of securing the status quo which natural rubber had been enjoying before the establishment of the synthetic industry. SMR20 is fast becoming a household word both among natural rubber (NR) producers and consumers. 

It was first introduced as the result of a long felt need to improve the system of quality grading and presentation of Malaysian natural rubber NR. Formally launched by the minister for commerce and industry in 1965, the SMR20 scheme has , over the years, establishment full buyers confidence in the technical grading system adopted and consumers have unreservedly accepted the improvements in the presentation of  SMR20

Prior to the advancement of the  SMR20 scheme natural rubber was only available in the conventional form of the sheets and creeps. The only method of grading was by visual appraisal. Color is the main concern of the producers. Hence the visual method of grading , Created many different classes and types and crepe rubber. As a result, buyers lost confidence in natural rubber because there is no guarantee of uniform quality and properties between the grades. Presentation is the accrued rubber itself, often viewed as the pool relative.
