Unformatted text preview: permanent set, ultimate mechanical properties, fatigue resistance, hot oil resistance, high-temperature utility, melt strength, and thermoplastic fabricating ability. In this study, Mixing of ingredients of the formulated composites and dynamic vulcanization of the elastomer was performed using a Haake torque rheometer. This device is shown in Figure 1.6. The Haake torque rheometer is an innovative torque rheometer platform designed to optimize process engineering applications. Data for melt characteristics, viscosity under shear load and the effectiveness of additives, heat and shear stability are readily attainable with this system. A typical mixer test is run at a defined speed (shear rate) versus time, and the material’s response is recorded as torque. The mixing chamber is temperature-controlled precisely by independent heating and cooling zones, but due to the frictional heat in the...
