Dispersion of a filler in the rubber blend.
Part I. Dispergation process description
Polimery 2007, No 7/8, 546
In the review (91 references) the process of a filler dispergation in the rubber blends, which can be used as constructional materials, was discussed. In the introduction the basic notions used for the process description were defined. Then the methods of the fillers' characteristics were discussed. Especially the effects of filler size reduction and its uniform dispersion in the matrix on the physical properties of the materials obtained were noticed. An importance of technical parameters of the process of rubber blends' preparation was stressed. Various mechanisms of the dispergation process were described and the conditions of their presence were determined. The simple models and equations describing the mechanisms mentioned were given.
Key words: rubber blend, filler, dispergation, agglomerate, aggregate, dispersion degree, deagglomeration degree
