The relationship between crosslink system, network structure and material properties of carbon black reinforced EPDM
The crosslink density and sulfur-ranks of crosslinks formed during vulcanization of a carbon black reinforced ENB–EPDM compound are analyzed as a function of the selected curing system: Conventional,Expand

EPDM Rubber Reclaim from Devulcanized EPDM
Two types of ethylene-propylene-diene monomer (EPDM) rubbers, namely an efficient vulcanized (EV) and a semiefficient vulcanized (SEV), have been used to produce devulcanizates in a continuous setup.Expand

Designing of cradle-to-cradle loops for elastomer products
ABSTRACT Reuse of devulcanisates in virgin rubber compounds is the shortest loop in cradle-to-cradle cycles for elastomers. Due to the enormous complexity of these loops, the technology still standsExpand

Improved Aging Performance of Virgin EPDM Roof-Sheeting Compounds with Amine-Devulcanized EPDM Weatherstrip Material
Abstract Sulfur-cured EPDM building-profile material was reclaimed in a co-rotating twin-screw extruder using hexadecylamine as reclaiming aid. This reclaim was blended with increasing amounts of aExpand

Study on the reversibility of PDM vulcanization
Reclaiming of EPDM-based rubber is still unexplored; contrary to reclaiming of NR-based rubber. A few attempts have been made to reverse the vulcanization of EPDM rubber, but the curing activity ofExpand

A Mechanistic Approach to EPDM Devulcanization
Abstract The extensive utilization of rubber in a wide variety of products causes a problem in terms of waste. Reclaiming of end-of-life products or production scrap is a potential solution. A highExpand
