Oils for Rubber Compounds

Petroleum-based Safe Process Oils in NR and NR/SBR Blends: Part III. Effects of Oil Types and Contents on the Properties of Carbon Black Filled Compounds

Part III. Effects of Oil Types and Contents on the Properties of Carbon Black Filled Compounds The influences of DAE-, TDAE- and MES-oils on the properties of carbon black filled NR and NR/SBR blend compounds are discussed. The properties are strongly affected by oil contents, but less by the oil types. Compounds with DAE have the lowest Mooney viscosity but highest complex viscosity and Payne effect. SEM micrographs show that carbon black is finely dispersed in the compounds, except for MES which shows slightly poorer filler dispersion than TDAE and DAE. The use of TDAE and MES in NR clearly influences the properties related to changes in Tg and viscoelastic behavior. Use of MES gives the best elastic response in NR, while TDAE gives the best response for NR/SBR blend vulcanizates. more...
