Rubber is one of the most used materials in the world to produce a wide range of products for several applications like automotive, building and construction, material handling, packaging, toys, etc. Due to its macromolecular structure, rubber shows high-performance features, including resilience, elasticity, abrasion resistance, efficient heat dispersion and impact resistance. Rubber Chemistry and Technology: Chemicals, Compounds and Goods book provides what is essential to know about the chemistry and technology of rubbers, including synthesis, viscoelastic and rheological behavior, vulcanization, elastomers reinforcement by fillers, rubber compounding, thermoplastic elastomers, and at the end, engineering of the tire and recycling of the rubbers.
