    ABSTRACT: New and high performance damping materials from ethylene vinyl-acetate copolymer (VA content over 40%, shorted as EVM) and polylactic acid (PLA) blends were prepared with dicumyl peroxide (DCP) as the curing agent and triallyl isocyanurate (TAIC) as the curing coagent. The effects of silica, mesoporous silica and glass beads on the damping of the EVM/PLA blends were examined using a dynamic mechanical analyzer (DMA). The microstructures of the silica, mesoporous silica and glass beads were observed by transmission electron microscope (TEM). The dispersion of the fillers in the matrix was studied using a Rubber Process Analyzer (RPA). The results showed that silica filled blend had an effective damping temperature range (EDTR, tan δ > 0.3) of 81℃, while the mesoporous silica/silica and glass beads/silica filled blends had EDTR of 86℃ and 85℃, respectively. Mixtures of mesoporous silica and silica as well as glass beads and silica exhibited a more improved dispersion in the blends than silica alone. Blends filled with mesoporous silica and glass beads retained good mechanical properties as well as improved damping performance.
