IOZZI, Marco A. et al. Study of the influence from chemical treatments of sisal fibers on the properties of composites with nitrile rubber. Polímeros [online]. 2010, vol.20, n.1, pp.25-32.  Epub 05-Fev-2010. ISSN 0104-1428.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0104-14282010005000003.

In this work, composites were produced with nitrile rubber and sisal fibers, and nitrile rubber with calcium carbonate and sisal fibers. The composites were processed on a two-roll mixing mill and their properties were investigated with regard to the influence of chemical treatments of the fibers. The composites, with short fibers randomly distributed, were characterized by mechanical analysis, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). Mercerization treatment of the fibers promoted increasing the adhesion between the fiber and the rubber matrix. The composites of nitrile rubber with 67 pcr of calcium carbonate and 33 pcr of mercerized sisal fibers showed the best mechanical properties. Thermal analysis demonstrated that the composites are thermally stable up to 300 °C. The materials developed have a good cost/benefit relationship making their utilization promising.

Palavras-chave : Nitrile rubber; natural fiber; composite.
