Formatted abstract The effect of filler loading and size on commercially available silica (Vulcasil C) and value added silica (ultrafine) as filler in SMR L grade natural rubber were studied. Vulcasil C with particle size ranged from 10μm-20μm whilst ultrafine (1μm-3μm) was loaded in SMR L compound at 4 different loadings. The curing characteristics, tensile properties and swelling behavior were studied. At similar filler loading, ultrafine-filled vulcanizates exhibited shorter scorch time and cure time. It also shows higher tensile strength and elongation at break up to 20 phr filler loading and exhibit lower swelling ratio compared to Vulcasil C-filled vulcanizates. © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
