Preparation and Mechanics Properties of MR Elastomers Based on Silicone Rubber
MR elastomers, which consisting of silicone rubber and carbonyl iron particles, are prepared under different magnet fields intensity. Their micro-structure and mechanics properties are investigated and compared. Results show that the bearing capacity and stiffness of both MR elastomers will increase when subjected to a magnet field. But the controllable range and comprehensive properties of the MR elastomers prepared with magnet fields are better than what of the MR elastomers prepared without magnet fields.
