Abstract:

A millable polyester urethane elastomer was compounded for optimum stress-strain properties in the 25 - 204 C range and low heat build-up characteristics. The effects of carbon black structure, particle size and ratio of carbon black to peroxide curative on these properties were studied. Regular structure ISAF carbon black and peroxide curative levels higher than those normally used in millable polyester urethanes provided vulcanizates with the desired properties. Track pads were fabricated and furnished to the U. S. Army Tank and Automotive Center for service testing. Author
