Title: ANISOTROPIC RUBBER COMPOSITION
Abstract:
Rubber compositions reinforced with an iron oxide reinforcement filler having anisotropic properties and articles formed therefrom. The anisotropic properties result from the iron oxide particles being directionally aligned within the rubber composition. Such rubber composition include a highly unsaturated diene rubber resulting at least in part from conjugated diene monomers and having a content of such monomers that is greater than 50 mol%. The iron oxide particles may be aligned with the magnetic field lines from a magnet placed in proximity with the rubber composition.
