Mechanical Properties of Natural Rubber and Chloroprene Rubber Latex Blends
The effects of the ratios of natural rubber latex (NRL)and chloroprene rubber latex(CRL) and the type of compatibilizer on physical and mechanical properties of latex film were researched.The oil resistance of vulcanized latex film was tested. The compatibility of the latex blends was also analyzed by TG/DTG method.The results showed that properties of latex film were best when ratio of NRL/CRL was 75/25. As the CRL content increased, oil resistance of latex film was improved. Epoxidized natural rubber latex improved compatibility of NRL and CRL blends.
