The Purpose of this dissertation is to study the preparation technique and physical properties of expanded rubber. The respective samples of NR, NBR and the standard compounds of EPDM rubber were prepared by mixing plasticizer DOP and LCR in various ratio. And their vulcanization characteristics, physical properties and foaming states were studied. Vulcanization characteristics were investigated using cure curve that had been obtained from Oscillating Disk Rheometer study, and the microscopic photographs of foaming states were obtained using electron microscope. The vulcanization characteristics of the samples, DOP 30phr and LCR 30phr, were found to be suitable. The tests, like hardness test and resilience, tensile test on the physical properties of each sample showed that plasticizing efficiencies of DOP and LCR were almost the same. Oil resistance test exhibited DOP was better than LCR and compression set test showed LCR was excellent plasticizer. The foaming states of NR, EPDM compounds were uniform, but those of NBR compounds were not uniform. Consequently vulcanization characteristics, physical properties and foaming states of all the samples satisfied the SAE requirements.
