EFFECT OF NETWORK STRUCTURE IN THE EQUATION OF RUBBER ELASTICITY.

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Though the stress, strain and temperature dependence for an ideal rubber is fairly well established the relation between network structural features like crosslinks, dangling ends and entanglements and mechanical response is still uncertain. Miller and Macosko have recently derived some modulus structure relations for several types of networks. These relations are tested here with a model system: the hydrosilation crosslinking of vinyl terminated polydimethylsiloxane chains with a tetra-functional silane. Results of shear modulus versus extent of reaction and versus stoichiometric imbalance are in good agreement with the theory.
