Synthesis and Characterization of soft magnetic Manganese ferrite Particles as a Basis for Magneto-Active Elastomers (MAEs)

Magneto-Active Elastomers (MAEs) were prepared based on a two component silicon rubber and soft magnetic manganese ferrite (MnFe2O4) micron sized particles. These ferrimagnetic crystals were synthesized in a two-step, co-precipitation and further calcination process. The surface of MnFe2O4 material was modified with fatty acids. more...

Solid Silicones

Heat-Resistant Solid Silicones for Automotive and Household

Elastosil R 756 solid silicone rubber grades are designed in such a way that their properties unfold by interaction with the heat stabilizers added to the base rubber during the compounding process. The thermal stability of the vulcanizate is influenced by the type and amount of the chosen stabilizer. more...

Effect of Additives on the Physical Properties of a Biopolymer Hydrogel from epoxidized natural rubber, polyvinyl alcohol, and Starch

Novel biopolymer hydrogels were made from poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA), epoxidized natural rubber (ENR) and starch with glutaraldehyde (GA) as a crosslinking reagent. The swelling ratio of the polymer hydrogel decreased as a function of the GA content, ENR content, PVA content, glycerol content while the swelling behavior of the new polymer hydrogel increased with increasing sodium alginate and starch. more...

EPDM waste rubber

Recycling of EPDM Rubber Waste Powder by Activation with liquid Polymers

The recycling of ethylene-propylenediene- rubber (EPDM) waste was realized by activation of EPDM rubber waste particles surface with liquid EPDM polymers (LP) of low molecular weight. The optimal ratio of the waste EPDM rubber to LP was investigated whit regards to the original EPDM properties. more...

Plasma Coating

Production of rubber/thermoplastics composite parts using the plasma coating

Next to established adhesion promotion methods like primer systems or the chemical modification of the base materials, plasma-polymeric interlayers can be used to improve the adhesion of rubber thermoplastic composites. Our studies show that excitation type as well as deposition parameters have a significant influence on the composite adhesion. more...
