The influence of partial replacement of carbon black (CB) by nanoclay on the curing kinetics of natural rubber/butadiene rubber-based hybrid nanocomposites was studied. The successive replacement of CB by organically modified nanoclays significantly influenced the curing behaviour of the compound: The crosslinking reaction is facilitated by the presence of nanoclay in these hybrid nanocomposites, as indicated by a decrease in activation energy. Furthermore, the modified nanoclays form a filler-filler network as indicated by viscosity and Payne effect measurements.
