Study the Effect of Adding Wool Fiber waste on the Mechanical Properties of Sbr/R.R CompositesAuthor(s): Ahmed M Ajam, Sameer Hassan Al-Nesrawy and Mohammed Al-Maamori
The effect of fillers such as mix of wool fiber on mechanical characteristics are studied in styrene butadiene rubber (SBR) and reclaim rubber (R.R) blend. The present study carried out through six recipes according to the loading level of mixed of industrial scraps (wool fiber) that it used as reinforcement materials in the compounds. The mechanical properties tests carried out according ASTM specification. All compounds are composed of wool fiber (0, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50) pphr. The results revealed that the mechanical properties were varied according to loading level, therefore; tensile strength and elongation were decreased with increasing the loading level of mix W.F. Also, the elastic modulus, tear resistance, hardness shore A and water absorption was increased with increasing loading ratio of W.F waste.
