Rice Husk Powder in Rubber

Effects of carburized Rice Husk Powders on physical Properties of Elastomer based Materials

In this study the effects of carburized rice husk (CRH) powders on the mechanical properties of SBR (SBR 1502) / waste rubber type elastomer based materials were investigated. In addition to the calcite and rubber powder fillings in the general composition of a rubber formula used in footwear production, CRH obtained by the Proliz method […] more...

Cellulose as Filler

Comparative studies on the potential of bacterial nanocellulose (BNC) as filler in elastomers

The influence of spherical beech cellulose (BuRe), a fibrous regenerated cellulose (FCP) and a nanoscale bacterial cellulose (BNC) was examined on the elastomeric properties in a S-SBR model mixture. All types of cellulose are suitable as elastomeric fillers. However, they should be used always modified to increase the compatibility between the hydrophilic cellulose and the […] more...

Review: Ageing of Rubber

Environmental Ageing of Elastomers – the Duality of Crosslinking and Chain Scissions

This review paper describes the duality between chain breaking and crosslinking reactions which possibly occurs during the ageing of most elastomers. The phenomenon occurs both on crude/not cured rubbers and on fully crosslinked rubbers and is much more important than in other polymer families. As the analytical methods to measure chain scissions are considered to […] more...

Fatigue crack growth behaviour

Durability Prediction of NR/BR and NR/SBR Blend Tread Compounds using Tear Fatigue Analyser

The present work aims to characterize fatigue crack growth (FCG) behaviour for comparative durability prediction of NR/BR- and NR/SBR- blend based compounds. The influence of strain, temperature, r-ratio and waveform was studied to simulate realistic service life condition by using a Tear and Fatigue Analyser (TFA). Both of these blends show higher FCG rate at […] more...

Adhesion

Comparison of fibre-matrix adhesion of elastomer-PPS-composites under quasi static and static-dynamic load in the tension mode as function of temperature

During the investigations, the adhesion of PPS fiber elastomer composites under quasi-static (T-Test) and static/dynamic loading (Eplexor) was determined in tensile mode at different temperatures. Therefore, PPS fibers with different sizings and various 2-step wet-chemical coatings were used. more...
