OLIVEIRA, Maria Aparecida de Souza; CASSU, Silvana Navarro; MELLO, Sandra Aparecida Coelho de  e  DUTRA, Jorge Carlos Narciso. The influence of vulcanization method on mechanical properties and crosslink density of natural rubber. Polímeros [online]. 2016, vol.26, n.spe, pp.43-48.  Epub 19-Jan-2016. ISSN 1678-5169.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/0104-1428.2051.

Vulcanization is an important factor on rubber mechanical properties determination. The influence of vulcanization method on mechanical properties is still an ongoing issue. Thus, a composition based in natural rubber (NR), named NR4010-A, was vulcanized by autoclave and press, on purpose to evaluated the vulcanization method influence on crosslink formation and thereafter on the mechanical properties of this material. Samples of vulcanized material in both conditions were characterized through swelling, rheometer tests, tear strength, strain strength and hardness. The mechanical properties studied and crosslink density were increased when the material was vulcanized by autoclave. Therefore, autoclave vulcanization method showed be more effective than press at the same conditions of temperature.

Palavras-chave : crosslink; NR; mechanical properties; vulcanization.
