Kinetics of Formation and Degradation of Elastomer Matrix with New Generation Non ASTM Carbon Black
Sudarshan Daw | Rajdeep Mal | Madhumita Paul | Dr. Soumen Chakraborty
Abstract: With the advent of new generation car with IC engine, hybrid engine and electric car, the elastomeric part in the automobiles demand a very stringent and varied service requirement. The specific duties which the new generation vehicles are demanding leads to a challenge for the present day polymer-filler interaction with normal ASTM black. The morphology of ASTM blacks seems too inadequate for many dynamic applications in extreme conditions. The present article is an attempt to create a series of black which originated from ASTM grade but the morphology is suitably modified to provide better extrusion rate with increased dimensional stability. These blacks also have higher activation energy for rubber-filler interaction with better degradation kinetics.
Keywords: automotive elastomers, polymer-filler interaction, ASTM black morphology, dynamic application challenges, rubber degradation kinetics
