Cure Characteristics, Tensile and Physical Properties of Recycled Natural Rubber Latex Glove (NRL-G) Filled Acrylonitrile Butadiene Rubber
The use of recycled natural latex rubber glove (NRL-G) as a reinforced material filled acrylonitrile butadiene rubber (NBR) was studied. The compounds of different NRL-G loading (0, 10, 20 and 30 phr) were prepared by using two roll mills at room temperature. Two different size ranges of NRL-G such as 300μm-700μm (fine) and 2cm-4cm (coarser) were used. The properties such as cure characteristics, tensile and physical properties were determined. The NBR/NRL-G compound with the fine size of NRL-G exhibits overall good cure characteristics and physical properties compared with coarser size. The addition of the of 20 phr content NRL-G (fine) contributed to the optimum tensile properties than coarser size.
