Abstract:

The concept of composite rubber networks, i.e. rubbers produced by the co-vulcanisation of two specialty rubbers, is examined as a means of producing vulcanisates with a balance of physico-chemical properties unlike that of any currently available specialty rubber. Using nitrile and silicone rubbers it is shown that materials properties can be closely controlled to give rubbers of considerable interest for application in the temperature range from -40 to 160C.
