Abstract


Tensile and electromagnetic properties of hard magnetic natural rubber composites were studied. In a fabrication stage, neodymium-iron-boron (NdFeB) magnets were recycled from electronic wastes, broken and then ball-milled for 1 - 3 h. The NdFeB powder was then incorporated into natural rubber (NR) by a 2-roll mill technique. Since the NdFeB powder behaved as a non-reinforced filler, thus, it inhibited cross-linking and stress-induced recrystallization. Therefore, the cure time and the tensile strength of the NdFeB-NR composites were reduced compared to the control sample without magnetic fillers. The addition of NdFeB fillers improved the electrical permittivity of NR and the magnetic moment in NdFeB-NR composites could be measured by a fluxmeter.
