Alterungs- und Abbauverhalten von verstärkten Naturkautschuk- Verbundmaterialien mit kurzen Isorafasern
von L. Mathew, R. Joseph
The use of polymeric materials under the influence of degrading agents such as
ozonised air, gamma radiations, and heat has increased rapidly in recent years.
Hence it is important to study the effects of such degrading agents on the performance of the composites.
The degradation behavior on the mechanical properties of short isora fibre reinforced natural rubber composites have been studied by exposure to gamma radiations, ozone and heat and biodegradation.
The effects of fibre treatment, fibre loading, fibre orientation and the role of bonding agent on the degradation pattern have been investigated.
