The Influence of Rubber Blend Aging and Sample Homogeneity on Heat Transport Phenomena

Article Preview

This paper is devoted to the study of thermal transport phenomena changes caused by natural aging of rubber blends. Thermal conductivity, diffusivity and heat capacity of rubber blends were measured and compared for the same samples before and after half of a year. Samples were stored at room temperature and daily light. In the frame of our investigations there has been observed the decrease of the thermal diffusivity as well as the thermal conductivity in the interval approximately 40-50 %. The changes of specific heat capacity after sample aging were negligible. The explanation of such behaviour we can see in the sample structure degradation caused by the environmental influence.
