This study examined the mechanical properties and the flame retardant properties of CR rubber containing inorganic flame retardant with various contents of aluminium trihydroxide (ATH, ). The content of aluminium trihydroxide was added in 0, 30, 50, 70 and 100 phr for T1~T5 samples. It was found that increasing the amount of addition over 30 phr resulted in decreasing the mechanical properties. On the other hand in oxygen index measurements T1 sample showed a value of 38.6%, indicating the improvement of flame retardant properties showed a value of 49.7~64.2%. In case of burn test, it was confirmed that CR rubber containing over ATH 50phr content showed performance corresponding to that of first grade fire-resistance.
