Rubber Magnetic Composites Cross-Linked with Peroxide Curing Systems


Styrene–butadiene rubber and acrylonitrile–butadiene rubber as elastomer matrices were filled with barium ferrite in order to prepare rubber magnetic composites. For cross-linking of rubber compounds, peroxide curing systems consisting of dicumyl peroxide as curing agent and four types of low molecular weight organic compounds as co-agents were used. The work was focused on the investigation of different types of co-agents on the cross-linking, physical-mechanical and magnetic properties of the prepared composites. The results revealed that the type and amount of co-agent has no influence on magnetic characteristics of composites. On the other hand, cross-link density and physical-mechanical properties were significantly dependent on the composition of curing system. Co-agents contribute to the improvement of adhesion on the interphase filler-rubber. Considering the type of rubber matrix, higher values of tensile strength exhibited composites based on acrylonitrile–butadiene rubber. As magnetic filler and co-agents are polar materials, their compatibility with polar elastomers like acrylonitrile-butadiene rubber is much higher when compared to no-polar elastomers like styrene–butadiene rubber.
