The Relative Viscosity of Concentrated Rubber Suspensions and Viscoelastic Modulus of 3D Сross-Linked Elastomers Filled with Solid Particles


For the first time, this paper describes the concentration dependence of the relative dynamic viscosity coefficient of rubber suspensions and the initial viscoelastic modulus of 3D cross-linked elastomers on the maximum volume filling with solid polydisperse particles. It allows to predict the rheological and mechanical properties of the polymer compositions being developed now. In this paper, we present the first experimental study of the pole of the concurrent lines of the concentration dependence in the coordinates of the linear form. The pole validates the invariant value of the constant of the developed equation and allows the experimental determination of the maximum volume filling of polymer binders filled with separate fractions or polydisperse mixtures. The results of the study are recommended for use in developing new polymer composite materials.
