Abrasive wear Behaviors of several Rubber Conveyor Belt Materials used in different Working Conditions

The abrasive wear is caused by conveyed materials such as coal, granite and hard rock in belt conveyors. It is expected that abrasion resistance of rubber belts is high. Conveyor belts are exposed to different working conditions such as natural weathering, oil, acid, thermal cycling and accelerated ageing during service life.Weiterlesen...

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.Weiterlesen...

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.Weiterlesen...
