Microstructure and magnetorheological properties of the thermoplastic magnetorheological elastomer composites containing modified carbonyl iron particles and poly(styrene-b-ethyleneethylenepropylene- b-styrene) matrix

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Novel isotropic and anisotropic thermoplastic magnetorheological elastomers (MRE) were

    prepared by melt blending titanated coupling agent modified carbonyl iron (CI) particles with

    poly(styrene-b-ethylene-ethylene–propylene-b-styrene) (SEEPS) matrix in the absence and

    presence of a magnetic field, and the microstructure and magnetorheological properties of

    these SEEPS-based MRE were investigated in detail. The particle surface modification

    improves the dispersion of the particles in the matrix and remarkably softens the CI/SEEPS

    composites, thus significantly enhancing the MR effect and improving the processability of

    these SEEPS-based MRE. A microstructural model was proposed to describe the interfacial

    compatibility mechanism that occurred in the CI/SEEPS composites after titanate coupling

    agent modification, and validity of this model was also demonstrated through adsorption tests

    of unmodified and surface-modified CI particles.
