    Abstract

    Thermoplastic natural rubber (TPNR) is prepared by blending natural rubber (NR) with polypropylene (PP) at various compositions. The hardness of TPNR is determined by the concentration of PP while the elasticity depends on the NR content. Addition of liquid natural rubber (LNR) to the blend causes the physical properties of TPNR to improve significantly. The LNR helps to increase the interaction between the PP and NR phases is due to the presence of active groups of the polyisoprene chains of LNR. The homogeneity of the NR-PP phases increases with the LNR content.
