Study the Effect of Fillers and Thermoplastics Content in the Mechanical Properties of Natural Rubber Vulcanized


In this research, the mechanical properties of natural rubber blends in differentproportions (70:30, 85:15, 100: 0 55:45 and phr) was studied through the use of two types offillers (carbon black and titanium dioxide Nano) which show through tests conducted on theprepared models that increase fillers content which leads to improve the tensile properties(tensile strength, elastic modulus, elongation, hardness and compressibility). As shown by theresults that the presence of polypropylene (PP) in the mix combination works to reduce thedegree of intumescent and increase its content in the composition of mixtures which leads toget a great resistance to chemicals (acids, bases and oils).
