Effect of fillers on thermal oxidative aging behavior of rubbers

Long term stability of rubber products is limited mainly by thermal-‎oxidative aging processes, which are depending on polymer structure and compound ‎ingredients. For optimization of properties of rubber ‎compounds fillers are necessary. So the objective of the study was to get ‎more knowledge about the influence of silica, carbon blacks and CNT on the ‎thermal oxidative stability and aging mechanisms. Systematic ‎investigations were performed by means of modern chemical and physical methods.
