Thermal Conductivity of Nature Rubber Filled with Carbon Black
The thermal conductivities of two rubbers filled with different carbon black (N330 and N375) are measured by experiments, and compared with five theoretical models calculated results. It is shown that thermal conductivity of carbon-filled rubber is obviously enhanced with increase of the volume filler fraction of carbon black and the thermal conductivity of carbon-filled rubber is related to the microstructure and morphology of carbon black. The estimated thermal conductivities by using the model proposed in our previous paper are of the same variation as the experimental ones of N330 carbon/rubber and N375 carbon/rubber during the range of volume fraction from 2% to 20%.
