Absorbtion of of Mg and Pb

PH-sensitive Absorbent: Anionic Polyacryamide/Cassava Starch Hydrogels containing Natural Rubber for Lead and Magnesium removal from aqueous Solution

The novel absorbent from polyacrylamide (PAM), cassava starch and natural rubber (NR) by microwave assistance were produced to remove lead ion and magnesium ion in aqueous solution. The absorption of Mg2+ and Pb2+ of the novel absorbent increases as function of sample weight due to high site group or carboxylic group of absorbent. The highest […] more...

Verschleiß von EPDM-Walzen

Influence of thermal Aging on mechanical and tribological Properties of Roller Compounds based on EPDM

Due to mechanical, thermal and chemical impacts, elastomer covered rollers used in plastic-sheets- and printing industry show strong aging and wear. Therefore, elastomer rollers need to be exchanged and newly grinded or covered quite often. This study focuses on the influence of thermal aging on mechanical and tribological properties of roller compounds based on EPDM, […] more...

Crystallization of Natural Rubber: Its unique Feature

Crystallization of natural rubber (NR) has been uniquely complicated. This review is to disentangle the complications. Low-temperature crystallization (LTC) is a difficulty when using NR during winter in the early 19th century, overcome by vulcanization. In 1925, strain-induced crystallization (SIC) was firstly reported, but it has remained obscure for long till the advent of time-resolved […] more...

Magnetic and dielectric Properties

PMMA Nanocomposites based on Laser fragmented Fe3O4 Nanoparticles

Laser photo fragmentation technique has been utilized as a versatile method to produce magnetite (Fe3O4) nanoparticles. It was found that, the diode laser beam with wavelength 808 nm is the most effective one, as it reduces the particle size of Fe3O4 to 5.5-26 nm. Casting technique was used to prepare nanocomposites based on polymethyl methacrylate […] more...

CO2 in Rubber

Optimisation of the Compound Quality of CO2-based Rubber Compounds

To improve the sustainability of rubber products, a new method was developed where CO2 is built into the polymer chain of rubber polymers. With this method it is possible to reduce the CO2-footprint by using a production method for rubber that needs fewer resources and by replacing a significant amount of crude oil by using […] more...

Stress-Strain Curves of BR, NBR and SBR

Synchrotron WAXS Studies of stretched Natural and Synthetic Rubber Networks showing an Upturn in Stress-Strain Curves*

Natural rubber (NR) displays very distinct stress-strain curve with an upturn in the stress at high elongations while most synthetic rubbers do not. This behavior has been associated with strain-induced crystallization. Here we show that three non-crystallizing weak synthetic rubbers, i.e. BR, NBR and SBR, could be reinforced in such a way that their stress-strain […] more...

Treating of NR Latex

Effect of Protein Crosslinking by Maillard Reaction on Natural Rubber Properties

Maillard crosslinking of proteins in natural rubber (NR) was carried out by treating fresh NR latex with various amounts of the Maillard reagents, i.e., formaldehyde (HCHO) and glutaraldehyde (C5H8O2). Attenuated total reflectance infrared spectroscopy revealed the occurrence of protein crosslinking in the treated NR. The treated NR contained higher protein content leading to not only […] more...

Free Volumes and their Distribution in SiR/EPDM Rubber Blends probed by Positron Annihilation Lifetime Technique

The nanoscale free-volume holes sizes, fractions and their size distributions in silicone rubber (SiR), ethylene propylene diene rubber (EPDM) and their blend (SiR/EPDM) are characterized by positron annihilation lifetime spectroscopy (PALS). The results show that EPDM has an estimated smaller free-volume hole size of 193.4 Å3  with a fraction 9.10 % as compared to the corresponding […] more...
