Abstract

The paper describes the mechanism of interactions between hydrocarbon solvents and vulcanized rubber (representing crosslinked network structure). The problem is discussed from the point of view of thermodynamic principles of swelling, temperature and material factors affecting swelling of filled rubber vulcanizates, as well as the impact of swelling on properties of the materials. Special attention has been paid to the importance of models for the physical swelling of rubber in various hydrocarbons, which will provide a basis for prediction of swelling in their mixture like oils.
