Silicone rubbers: effect of silica fillers on processibility and properties
thesisposted on 06.02.2015 by David W. Southwart
In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
The aim of this thesis is to present the results obtained, to interpret them in terms of adsorbed rubber, interparticular rubber and matrix rubber, and to assess their relative importance in controlling the processibility and physical properties of silicone rubber. The secondary aim is to consider their relevance to the broader issue of the particulate reinforcement of rubbers.
