Synergistic impact of quick extrusion furnace (FEF) black on viscosity and rheological properties of ethylene propylene diene monomer vulcanizate: Fullerenes, Nanotubes and Carbon Nanostructures: Vol 0, No 0



An investigation is made on vulcanizates primarily based Ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) rubber which is ready by incorporating 30 phr of cellulose brief fibres together with totally different loading ranges of quick extrusion furnace black (FEF) at an increment degree of 20 phr in two roll mill. EPDM rubber was discovered as a gorgeous candidate for the thermal insulation of case-bonded SRM because of the benefits similar to low particular gravity, improved ageing properties, and longer shelf life. This analysis supplies theoretical and experimental characterisation for the friction behaviours of EPDM rubber. The impact of FEF on viscosity and rheological properties of assorted EPDM compounds similar to C1–C8 had been pretty investigated utilizing the Monsanto transferring die Rheometer (MDR 2000), and Mooney viscometer. The curing traits like TS2, TS5, ML, MH, remedy time (TC90), and viscosity of assorted EPDM compounds had been extensively decided and the outcomes had been critically in contrast. It was pretty noticed that the reinforcement of FEF together with cellulose brief fibres within the EPDM compounds has made a better impression on bettering the rheological properties and confirmed the synergistic impact between the fillers and the rubber matrix. The rise in temperature causes a lower within the friction coefficient.
