I think the trick is to be sure they're in fact just rubber isn't it?

My work uses 'rubber bands' that are suppose to last longer under office 
lighting. So obviously has chemicals in it or it's better quality vulcanised 
rubber. ;-)

Personally I've only ever used cotton thread to do the securing.

I did find these sites on how the bands are made and what's in them.
