OBJECTIVES a. Tensile Strength > 3Mpa,
b. Tensile Strain > 200% Mpa and
c. Specific gravity < 1.1

In the research project, reinforcement of EPDM with aramid fibers to


get the required mechanical properties is required.

EPDM is amorphous elastomer and exhibits weak mechanical


properties. Reinforced fillers such as silica, carbon black, aramid fibers
etc and other additives are generally added to enhance the mechanical

properties of EPDM. One of the most important characteristics of EPDM
is their ability to accommodate large quantities of fillers and other
additives without affecting process ability and without creating
unnecessary instability in the composites. Therefore, EPDM can easily
be compounded with various concentration of aramid fiber to get the
desired properties.
