Surface Modification of Starch and its Application in Rubber Composite with Low Heat Generation and High Fatigue Resistant
The surface modification of corn starch and the use of modified starch as reinforcing filler partly replaced carbon black in rubber composites were studied. The surface of starch was modified with 3, 4-2H-dihydropyran and maleic anhydride by grafting reaction in organic solution, that is, the process of etherification and the esterification of the starch. The structure of the ether ester starch was investigated by FTIR, SEM. Based on the results of the mechanical and heat building up properties of composite, it is showed that using modified starch as reinforcement filler filled into the rubber partly replaced CB, the characteristics of high flex life and low heat building up for composite can be obtained.
