The NR (STR5L) rubber was purchased in block form from Chana Latex Co., Ltd. (Songkhla, Thailand), whereas CB (N-330, particles size 30 nm) and china clay (CC, C-400, mesh size 400) were acquired from GSP Products Co., Ltd. (Bangkok, Thailand). The CB and CC are generally considered as reinforcement and non-reinforcement fillers, respectively. Paraffinic oil (PO, grade A no.15), added […]

Optimization of the Rubber Formulation for Footwear

Optimization of the Rubber Formulation for Footwear

Impact force remains the primary cause of foot injury and general discomfort with regard to footwear. The footwear industry traditionally relies on modified elastomers (including natural rubber) whose properties can be physically adjusted by varying the constituents in the rubber formulations. This work aims to investigate the effect of filler/plasticizer fractions on shock attenuation of natural rubber soles. The statistical […]
