Partial carbon black replacement by nanoclay for enhanced crosslinking
from SPE Plastics Research Online
For commercial production of rubber, it is essential to study the energy consumption during processing and vulcanization, as that helps to find the best curing parameters and directly influences the cost and effectiveness of the end product. Most of the final properties for rubber compounds correlate to the type and degree of vulcanization, as well as the type and amount of fillers. The study of cure kinetics and processing behavior gives a clear insight into the actual mechanisms of curing and its effect on the final properties of the end products.
