Abstract

The effects of clay and liquid natural rubber (LNR) on mechanical properties and morphology of natural rubber (NR)/high-density polyethylene (HPDE)-aramid composites were investigated. The optimum fiber loading in NR:HDPE (50:50) blend was determined. It was concluded that the partial replacement of Twaron by clay at certain percentage, have improved the mechanical properties and better surface morphology of the composites especially with the 10% LNR. This enables to use Twaron partially with clay in the composites in order to improve the mechanical properties and reduce the cost of composites material.
