EFFECTS OF SEVERAL FACTORS ON ANTI–VIBRATION ABILITY OF EPDM RUBBER

Phan Quoc Phu

Abstract


In this research, ethylene–propylene–diene (EPDM) rubber, a type of synthetic rubber with excellent anti–vibration and anti–noise properties, was studied for the application in
anti–vibration pads. Via changes in the concentration of substances in the mixtures such as carbon black, triethanolamine (TEA) and sulfur, the mechanical properties and the anti–vibration efficiency of the EPDM rubber samples were determined using mechanical tester. As a result, the EPDM rubber samples containing about 45 % of carbon black N330, 1 % of TEA and 1 % of sulfur showed some good results including the shore hardness about 62 A, the compressive stress at peak of 1.04 N/mm2 and the anti–vibration efficiency approximately 72 %.


Keywords


EPDM rubber, anti–vibration properties, anti–vibration pads.
