The RPA viscosity data lined up well with the capillary rheometer data when the filler loadings were at 50 phr or lower.
Prior to the methodology for the distribution of the dynamic loadings to the elements of the carrying structure is developed, need to be implemented mathematical modelling.
Some types of LLDPE can take higher loadings than others, depending on the bag properties required.
Surface-treated materials improve dispersion and permit increased filler loadings.
ST-4620 carbon black can contribute to improved processing and performance even at higher loadings.
For example, a natural rubber compound with a 70 phr loading of the new product displays a crack growth rate of 1.
At very high loadings the inactive samples (partially graphitized) for the finer high DBPA grades gave higher tensile than untreated samples.
At carbon black loadings typical of those formulations, the resistance of the compound is sufficiently low that flow of current is determined, as in a more usual electrochemical cell, by the concentration of the electroactive species (sulfur-sulfur bonds) at the electrode/electrolyte interface.
A review of the raw data (tables 3 and 4) shows that variations in silica and process aid loadings significantly impact a number of silicone rubber performance properties.
There are treatments to allow for high rubber loadings of thermoplastics such as PE, PP and PVC.
For opacity and tint strength, Optiwhite and Optiwhite MX permit up to 50% reduction in TiO loadings.
