The portal I referred to earlier is a physic portal. Here's one from a university's lecture material :

http://www2.le.ac.uk/Members/mr6/lec...s-students.pdf

To quote " The properties of elastomers are remarkable and very different to almost any other solids. For example, ideal rubber does not expand when heated. In fact, loaded rubber will actually contract if heat is applied. "

Applying a layman's "things expand when heated" understanding is quite clearly unsafe when it comes to elastomers, which react differently to changes in entropy from undisordered solids.
