Over 10 million metric tons of carbon black and silica nanoparticles are produced each year, mainly to modify polymer mechanical performance for numerous industrial and household applications. Janaína de Castro investigates the viscoelastic behavior of silica filled Nitrile Butadiene Rubber NBR using three different sizes, surface areas in three different regions of deformations: small, medium and very large (i.e. until the break point).
