Rashid, Azura and Ismail, Prof. Hanafi (2007) An Investigation Of The Effect Of Ageing On Mechanical Properties Of Elastomer. Project Report. Universiti Sains Malaysia.
This research aims to investigate the effect of h eat ageing on the mechanical properties of natural rubber (NR). The work involved the use of different curing systems to investigate the change in the strength properties of rubber after ageing at 100°C in the oven. A series of experimental tests were carried out on NR compounds with different vulcanization systems; sulfur vulcanization system and non-sulphur vulcanization system. The mechanical properties (tensile strength, catastrophic tearing energy (Tc) and cyclic crack growth were measured
