Mechanical Properties of Industrial Tyre Rubber Compounds

Mohd Bijarimi, H. Zulkafli and M. D.H. Beg

This study aims to investigate the effect of carbon black structures on the mechanical properties of industrial tyre rubber compounds containing Natural Rubber (NR) and Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR). Different carbon black structures were used and characterised with respect to their rheological and physical properties. It was found that the NR compound containing high structure black, i.e., N550 showed higher torque and shorter cure times. In contrast, the NR/SBR blends compound did not clearly influence this phenomenon. It was also found that the carbon black grades of N375 and N339; despite of different carbon black structures showed a little influence on the physical properties such as hardness, rebound resilience, tensile and tear strength in NR/SBR blends compound.
