About Tuk Tuks

Auto rickshaws, commonly known as three-wheelers or tuk-tuks, can be found on all roads in Sri Lanka from the curvy roads through the hill country to the congested roads of Colombo transporting locals, foreigners, or freight. Sri Lankan tuk-tuks are of the style of the light Phnom Penh type. Most tuk-tuks in Sri Lanka are a slightly modified Indian Bajaj model, imported from India though there are few manufactured locally and increasingly imports from other countries in the region and other brands of three-wheelers such as Piaggio. In 2007 January the Sri Lankan government imposed a ban on all 2-stroke three-wheelers, and therefore the ones imported to the island now are only with a four-stroke engine. Most three-wheelers are available as hiring vehicles, with few being used to haul goods and as private company or advertising vehicles.

But it was not until 1839, when Charles Goodyear accidentally dropped rubber and Sulphur on a hot stovetop causing it to char like leather yet remain plastic and elastic, that the first industrial application for rubber was discovered. Vulcanization is a refined version of this process.
