In this work, weight ratios 100 / 0 to 60 / 40 of blends of S-SBR and BR extended with two types of oils: a mineral-based Treated Aromatic Distillate Extract (TDAE) and a bio-based type called Vivamax 5000 are evaluated for the best AR, RR and WSR. The effect of the blend ratio and the type of the oil on these performance indicators is considered. Conventional methods including DIN-Abrader for AR, tan δ at 60 °C / Payne effect (ΔG) for RR, and tan δ at 0 °C for WSR are used for the evaluation. Additionally, an alternative indicator for predicting WSR is presented with a high frequency testing approach using Broadband Dielectric Spectroscopy (BDS). A discussion of the molecular aspects of the best AR, RR and WSR for the respective combinations of blend ratio(s) and the oil(s) is included in the final evaluation.
