About the book
Rubber Materials are used across a huge range of domestic and industrial applications. There are ten common types of rubber Natural Rubber, Styrene-butadiene rubber, Butyl, Nitrile, Neoprene®, Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer, Silicone, Polyurethane, and Hydrogenated Nitrile. Their properties and applications are important for domestic and industrial applications.
The scope of this book covers four areas of rubber material as its properties and characterizations of them. Their mechanical, optical, and acoustic properties and kinetics are covered in the book. Firstly, their elasticity, toughness, modulus, compression, and extension parameters are significant concerning their mechanical properties. Secondly, their optical properties of them can be characterized by spectroscopic techniques such as fluorescence and UV measurements. Thirdly, their swelling, drying, diffusion, and release parameters are obtained as their kinetics of them. Lastly, the parameters such as transmission loss, sound absorption coefficient, and acoustic impedance are given as acoustical performance of them in this book.
