Unformatted text preview: 1985), butyl rubber-polypropylene based thermoplastic elastomer (Liao et al. 1994), and acrylic rubber-poly(vinylidene fluoride) based thermoplastic elastomer (Li et al. 2006), show higher mechanical properties through dynamic vulcanization. However, few studies on dynamic vulcanization of F-TPE have been reported. Further, the effects of nanofillers on F-TPE dynamic vulcanization and on the properties of the resulting F-TPE nanocomposites also deserve an in-depth investigation because of the significant effects of nanofillers on the vulcanization and properties of fluoroelastomers. In this chapter, F-TPE nanocomposites with different types and contents of nanofillers were prepared by dynamic vulcanization process. The properties of the nanocomposites including thermal, mechanical, and dynamic properties were investigated. The objectives of this research include:...
