An introduction to rubber technology by Andrew Ciesielski

By Andrew Ciesielski

An advent to Rubber know-how is definitely the right simple advisor for somebody who's approximately to begin operating with rubber. This guide has information regarding each point of utilizing rubber from the preliminary choice of the rubber compound to the size of its actual homes. a quick historical past of the makes use of of usual and artificial rubber is incorporated however the bulk of the ebook concentrates at the compounding and processing of rubber to supply rubber items.

The forms of rubbers and their houses are defined and an in depth description of ways to formulate rubber compounds together with using ingredients, fillers, antioxidants and plasticizers is given. There also are chapters on easy methods to approach rubber and the way to check either cured and uncured rubber. The chemistry, physics and engineering houses of rubber are defined and the way they relate to the ultimate rubber compound is defined. the ultimate bankruptcy covers the education and use of castable polyurethanes. every one bankruptcy is totally referenced and in addition contains an in depth bibliography.

Other fillers available are aluminum hydroxide, coal dust, lignin, silicates and talc [24]. 8 Plasticizers Oils and other ‘slippery’ materials are called plasticizers (a somewhat vague term). ASTM D 1566 defines them as ‘a compounding material used to enhance the deformability of a polymeric material’. Their function at low levels is to aid in the dispersion of fillers. At higher amounts they reduce uncured compound viscosity, often lower compound cost, reduce vulcanizate stiffness (hardness) and in some cases improve low temperature flexibility.

The accelerator story can get quite interesting, with variations in amount used and blends of different types, to get just the right amount of processing safety (protection from premature scorch), speed of cure (time is money) and final state of cure (which affects final properties). The cost of the accelerator also needs to be considered. The type of elastomer chosen can dictate both the type and amount of accelerator used. For example EPDM, with few double bonds (double bonds are used for cross-linking) needs 'faster' curing accelerators to permit a reasonable state of cure.
