  • The mechanical behavior of carbon black reinforced rubber plays a crucial role in the in-service performance and product life time of rubber-based NVH mitigation devices. This comprehensive experimental study quantitatively evaluates the degree to which the various colloidal properties of carbon blacks, such as surface area and structure, control key vibration isolation performance parameters such as the dynamic/static stiffness ratio, phase angle and transmissibility spectrum. Tradeoffs between isolation performance and durability of the compounds are evaluated by considering fatigue crack growth measurements and critical tear energies. Power law fatigue crack growth behavior is quantitatively correlated to key properties of carbon black controlling the strain induced crystallization and local hysteresis toughening mechanisms.
