Abstract

Siliceous earth (SE) is a kind of mineral consisting of lamellar kaolinite, muscovite (aluminum silicate) and corpuscular silica. Natural rubber (NR) composites containing NR as matrix, epoxidized natural rubber (ENR) as compatibilizer and SE as filler were produced by latex coagulating process and cured using a conventional sulfuric system. Monsanto measurements have shown that the ENR accelerates the vulcanization reaction and gives rise to a marked increase of the torque. The results of physico-mechanical properties of NR vulcanizates show that, when SE modified by silane coupling agent and in the meanwhile adding 4 phr of ENR as compatibilizer, maximum tensile strength, elongation at break, reinforcing index (M300/100) of NR/SE vulcanizates were obtained. The dynamic-mechanical properties exhibit the addition of ENR can enhance wet grip characteristics and reduce rolling resistance by lowering tan δ values at 60 °C and increasing tan δ values at 0 °C of NR compounds. The overall results show that properties of SE-reinforced NR substantially improved by adding ENR as compatibilizer. The addition of silane coupling agent and combining an appropriate amount of ENR would be better choice to improve the properties of NR/SE compounds.
