Polystyrene-Butadiene grafted Imide-Imine for Enhancing Adhesion between Rubber and Polypropylene fibers

Acrylic acid reacted with ethylene diamine to give amide- imine oligomer. This oligomer was grafted to polystyrene-butadiene rubber. The oligomer structure was elucidated using FT-IR, 1H- NMR, 13C-NMR and mass spectroscopy.Weiterlesen...

Graphene Reinforced Synthetic Isoprene Rubber Nanocomposites

Nanofillers have been investigated recently to improve desired characteristic properties of rubber nanocomposites. In this work, commercially available exfoliated Graphene nanoPlatlets (xGnPs) of types xg C750 and xg M5 were used as nanofillers and N234 was used as a traditional filler.Weiterlesen...

Preparation of a cationic Polyacrylamide for Coagulating Natural Rubber-Latex using a Combination of Potassium Persulfate and Hydrogen Peroxide

The aim of this work was to prepare a NR latex coagulant from cationic polyacrylamide (C-PAM) using potassium persulfate as an initiator. The influence of the content of potassium persulfate, temperature, reaction time and C-PAM concentration on the solubility of C-PAM was investigated by observations of its dynamic viscosity.Weiterlesen...

Influence of physical and chemical Polymer-Filler Bonds on Tire Wet-Traction Performance Indicators for Passenger Car Tire Tread Materials

The rubber compound used for a tire tread is a composite material of which the dynamic properties can be adjusted over a relatively broad range by modification of the polymer-filler interaction. For silica-reinforced compounds, control over the polymer-filler interaction is realized by chemical coupling of the silica to the rubber by different silane coupling agents.Weiterlesen...
