|Abstract:||The use of natural rubber (NR) for partly substituting elastomeric chlorinated polyethylene (CPE) was carried out. Sulfur curing was used to vulcanize NR phase in the blends. Mechanical, rheological, and thermal aging properties as well as oil resistance of the blends were investigated. The amount of NR in blends significantly affects properties of the blends. With NR content in blends up to 20 wt %, tensile properties are similar to those of the pure CPE, even after either oil immersion or thermal aging. Rheological properties of CPE/NR blends determined from the rubber process analyzer (RPA 2000) and parallel-plate rheometer are controlled strongly by the blend composition. The viscoelastic behavior of pure CPE and the blends with CPE as a major component is governed by the viscous response, which could be seen from the high damping factor, particularly at high strain, the short linear viscoelastic range, and the high degree of pseudoplasticity. © 2004 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.|
