Abstract:APPS has been used to modify EPDM in order to solve the cure incompatibility and heterogeneous filler distribution of NR/BR/EPDM blends for tire sidewall applications. The physical properties of the NR/BR/APPS-EPDM blends are compared with an NR/BR/EPDM blend and a conventional NR/BR tire sidewall. It is demonstrated that the application of APPS-EPDM leads to a significant improvement of the tensile properties, tear strength, and fatigue properties. The properties of the NR/BR/APPS-EPDM blends are equivalent or even superior to those of conventional NR/BR tire sidewall compounds. The dynamic viscoelastic properties of the NR/BR/APPS-EPDM blends are not quite comparable with the conventional NR/BR sidewall blend, but still greatly improved, compared to using virgin EPDM.
