This is a question about rubber extraction.

We all know, that the rubber tree is cut and latex is extracted.
Now, when you extract the latex and warm it/cool it down to different temperatures over a range of 20 to 80 degrees celsius and THEN allow the rubber to solidify, would it affect the properties of the rubber formed? In which way?
