Study of rheological, physico-mechanical and morphological Properties of Nitrile Butadiene Rubber loaded with Organo Bentonite

The rheometric characteristics and physico-mechanical properties of bentonite (Bt)/ and modified bentonite (organo-Bt)/acrylonitrile-butadiene rubber (NBR) were investigated. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) showed that the rubber chains may be confined within the interparticle space and the Bt particles presented a physical dispersion in NBR matrix. Bt was modified with tetra butyl phosphonium bromide (TBP) in order […] 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...

Dämpfungs- und Isolationeigenschaften

Schwingungsfortsetzung und Dämpfung in Elastomer – Stahlgrenzflächen von Federn

A rubber-buffer-pendulum and an impulse-hammer-pendulum are bulit to investigate damping and isolation properites of different rubber-buffers. It can be summarized that soft rubber-buffers show the best isolation and damping properties. Hard rubber-buffers show the largest mechanical impedance and thereby are most resistant against mechanical loading. Hard rubber-buffers show poor damping and isolation properties. Therefore there […] more...

Physical Properties of smart maleated Poly(vinyl alcohol) –g-Poly (N-isopropylacrylamide) and natural Rubber Latex

The objective of this work was to analyze the physical properties of smart polymer from a maleated poly (vinyl alcohol) (PVAM) graft copolymer with poly-N-isopropylacrylamide (PNIPAM) (PVAM-g-PNIPAM) and natural rubber (NR) latex in green route. The mechanical properties of  the swollen hydrogel was enhanced by the addition the NR latex.  The PVAM-g-PNIPAM and PVAM-g-PNIPAM/NR hydrogel […] more...

Influence of Nanographite Surface Area on mechanical Reinforcement of Nanocomposites based on Poly(styrene-co-butadiene)

It was studied the effect of surface area (s.a.) of nanosized graphites on dynamic-mechanical and tensile properties of nanocomposites based on poly (styrene-co-butadiene) as the polymer matrix. Nanographite with very high s.a. (>800 m 2 /g) was compared with graphites with low s.a. (<40 m 2 /g). All nanographites had remarkable in plane crystallinity and […] more...

Influence of the Carbon-Silica Reinforcing Filler, Obtained via Pyrolysis of Waste “Green” Tyres on the Properties of EPDM Based Composites

The paper reports on the effect that the solid product from pyrolysis-cum-water vapour of waste green tyres (SiO2D), has upon the properties of EPDM based composites. The results have shown that in the course of pyrolysis the silanol groups over the surface of silica used as filler of the rubber vulcanizates subjected to pyrolysis are preserved in the final product of that process. more...
