Based on basic observations and tests and no prior knowledge of the manufacturer, is it possible to determine (or at least make a rough prediction) what types of rubber were used to make a given rubber band, or if it is vulcanized? This is mainly as an experiment to figure out what kinds of rubber bands I have will go sticky instead of brittle when oxidized.
