Abstract

The blends of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) with natural rubber (NR) were prepared via melt mixing technique, at four different blending temperature at range 180°C - 210°C and mixing times of 8, 10, 12, 14 min. The effects of both mixing parameters on tensile strength of the blends were investigated. The blend of 85TPU15NR shows the maximum tensile strength at 180°C and 10 min mixing. The viscosity of the polymer blends will decrease as the temperature increased. The movements of molecules are more worthy because of the poor molecules interaction. The increasing of mixing time will increase the compatibility of the blends and also increase in mechanical properties. Mixing time and mixing temperature are important parameters in acquiring blends having optimum mechanical properties.
