On Rheology, Cure Kinetics and Chemorheology of Gum Rubbers
The paper presents an experimentally supported modeling approach, which describes the rheology, detailed cure kinetics, and chemorheology of a gum elastomer in course of sulfur accelerated vulcanization. Changes in the rheology during cure reaction are correlated with degree of cross-linking, described by vulcanization kinetics. Oil extended SBR exemplifies the approach.
