ABSTRACT
Maleated natural rubber (MNR) and natural rubber grafted with amine derivative (NR-g-HPM) were successfully prepared by melt blending method. FT-IR spectra have been used to confirm the grafting of functional group onto natural rubber backbone. An improvement in thermal stability and oil resistance was observed for modified natural rubber samples. Among the three different types of natural rubbers, MNR exhibited the highest elastic and oil resistance properties, while the NR-g-HPM provides the highest thermal stability. Consequently, the modified forms of natural rubber exhibited promising properties which is expected to reach to fulfill the requirements of industrial applications.
