Paper Title:
Viscoelastic Characterization of Microwave Drying Nature Rubber
  Abstract

Nature rubber (NR) is neither completely viscous nor elastic in nature, but viscoelastic in their properties. In the experiment, we used two types of equipments named rubber process analyzer (RPA) 2000 and mooney viscometer to characterize the viscoelastic properties of NR dried by microwave and hot-air, respectively. In present research, RPA tests on uncured NR dried by different methods were carried out using frequency and strain sweeps, and Mooney viscometer was detected using the big rotor at 100°C. The results showed that microwave drying has not influenced the viscoelastic properties of NR greatly, without changing the profiles of its rheological behavior. Compared with hot-air drying, the properties of NR dried by microwave improved significantly. As a new application, microwave drying technology offered an alternative way to the drying of NR.
