Influence of Initial States of Test Sheets on Adhesion of NR/NR, BR/BR, and NR/BR

시험편의 초기 상태가 NR/NR, BR/BR, 그리고 NR/BR 접착에 미치는 영향

Adhesion of NR and BR composites with different initial states of precured or uncured conditions was studied. Adhesion between the NR and BR sheets as well as adhesion between the same rubber sheets was investigated. Adhesion forces of the uncured/uncured specimens were larger than those of the cured/uncured and cured/cured ones. The cured/cured samples and uncured NR/cured BR specimen were fully peeled out by the peel test. When one sheet was broken during the peel test, the sheet having the higher crosslink density was broken irrespective of the rubber types. Adhesion forces of the same rubber sheets were higher than those of the different ones and adhesion force of the cured NR/uncured BR sample was higher than that of the uncured NR/cured BR one. The experimental results were explained with the crosslink density and interdiffusion of rubber chains.
