Linear viscoelasticity of several carbon-black SBRs

The linear viscoelasticity of several carbon-black filled SBRs were characterized by DMA tests on a DMAQ800 dynamic uniaxial tension machine from TA.

Materials are made of the same gum and filled with 0, 5, 30, 40, 50 and 60 per of N347 carbon-black. More details on the materials and how we applied micro mechanics modeling to show evidences of a viscoelastic interphase of about 5 nm at the filler-rubber interface.
