The Evaluation of Storage Lifetime of Vulcanized Nature Rubber Dried by Microwave Using Thermogravimetric Point Slope Method
The storage lifetime of nature rubber vulcanizes dried by microwave and hot-air was investigated by using thermogravimetric point slope (TPS) method. The results showed that the storage lifetime at ambient temperature of nature rubber vulcanizes dried by microwave was 9 years which was 1.2 years longer than hot-air. Microwave drying nature rubber vulcanizes showed a better thermal-oxidation ageing resistance and a longer storage lifetime. It provided theoretical guide and basis for practical application.
