Abstract

Main purpose of the work - a detailed study of the properties of materials obtained by irradiating mixtures of polydimethylsiloxan e rubber and various fillers (special silicic acid, titanium dioxide, flue dust, chimney soot and lamp black). The irradiation was done with a powerful X-ray unit and a Co{sup 60} gamma-ray source of 20,000 gr. radium equivalent. The relative speed of formation of the space lattice of the vulcanized material was evaluated (by the size of the equilibrium constant and the maximum degree of swelling in benzene). Changes in tensile strength and specific elongation during the irradiation process were studied. The optimum vulcanization regime was chosen and the basic physico-mechanical characteristics of the vulcanized materials were defined. Changes in the properties of the irradiated vulcanized material during hot aging at temperatures of 150{sup o}, 200{sup o} and 250{sup o} were studied. Irradiation in vulcanization removes the necessity for carrying out the process at high temperatures and for keeping the product under controlled temperature conditions for long periods after vulcanization. This new method of vulcanizing allows the use of carbon black as a filler. The use of ionizing radiation makes it possible to simplify the technique of vulcanizing silicon rubber and  More>>

(author) [French] L'etude porte avant tout sur les proprietes des matieres qu'on obtient apres avoir expose a des radiations du caoutchouc au polydimethyl-siloxane melange a des produits d'addition differents (acide silicique special, bioxyde de titane, noir de fumee en poudre impalpable obtenu au four et a la lampe). L'exposition aux radiations s'effectuait dans une installation puissante de rayons X et avec une source de rayonnement gamma en {sup 60}Co avec une activite de 20 000 g. eq. ra. Les auteurs ont evalue la vitesse relative de formation du reseau spatial des vulcanisants (selon la grandeur du module d'equilibre et du gonflement maximum apres immersion dans du benzol). Ils ont etudie les variations de la resistance a la rupture et de l'allongement relatif au cours de l'exposition aux radiations. Ils ont selectionne les regimes optimaux de vulcanisation et determine les coefficients physico-chimiques fondamentaux des vulcanisants. Ils ont etudie egalement la variation des proprietes des vulcanisants radiatifs au cours du vieillissement thermique, par des temperatures differentes (150{sup o}, 200{sup o} et 250{sup o}). La vulcanisation radiative evite l'emploi de temperatures elevees et le maintien prolonge d'une temperature constante apres vulcanisation. Cette nouvelle methode de vulcanisation permet d'utiliser, en guise de produits d'addition, des noirs de fumee. L'utilisation des radiations ionisantes permet de simplifier la technique de vulcanisation du caoutchouc au silicium et d'ameliorer les proprietes des vulcanisants. (author) [Spanish] La principal finalidad de este trabajo es estudiar detalladamente las propiedades de los materiales obtenidos por irradiacion de una mezcla de elastomero de polidimetilsiloxano y distintas cargas (acido silicico especial, bioxido de titanio, hollin y negro de humo). La irradiacion se efectuo con un aparato de rayos X de gran potencia o con una fuente gamma de {sup 60}Co de una intensidad equivalente a la de 20 000 gramos de radio. La velocidad relativa de reticulacion de las sustancias vulcanizadas se determino segun la magnitud de la constante de equilibrio y el grado maximo de turgencia en benceno. Se estudiaron las variaciones de la resistencia a la traccion y del alargamiento especifico durante el proceso de irradiacion. Se eligieron los regimenes optimos de vulcanizacion y se determinaron las princiales propiedades fisicas y mecanicas de las sustancias vulcanizadas. Asimismo, se estudiaron las variaciones que las propiedades de las sustancias radiovulcanizadas experimentan en el transcurso del envejecimiento termico a distintas temperaturas (150{sup o}, 200{sup o} y 250{sup o}). La irradiacion permite disminuir la temperatura de vulcanizacion y prescindir de un almacenamiento prolongado a temperatura regulada, que de otro modo es necesario despues de la vulcanizacion. El negro de humo puede utilizarse como material de carga para el caucho vulcanizado con arreglo al nuevo metodo. Los autores llegan a la conclusion de que el empleo de las radiaciones ionizantes se traduce en una simplificacion de la tecnologia de la vulcanizacion del caucho de siliconas y en un mejoramiento de las propiedades de los productos obtenidos.
