For the superior performance of a vulcanized product, effective dispersion of fillers into rubber matrix is a most important requirement. A quantitative method of measuring filler to filler interaction by using Dynamic Mechanical Analyzer (DMA) is described here in this study. This method is based on a measurement of strain sweep on cured vulcanizate sample. The selected rubber matrixes were Natural Rubber (NR) and Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR), three different series of carbon black by varying the particle size was used as filler.
