Rubber/Titanium oxide nanocomposites might be considered as potential materials in medical and industrial applications due to the flexibility of the polymer and antibacterial properties of nanometric additive. In this research paper, the morphology and physical properties of nanocomposites based on Styrene Butadiene rubber have been investigated in the presence of nano titanium oxide additive. The nanocomposites have been prepared by mechanical blending using two roll mills. Nano Titanium oxide particles have been added to Styrene Butadiene rubber and the abrasion and thermal properties have been surveyed. Optical microscopic observation and scanning electron microscopic pictures have been used to investigate the morphology of nanocomposites based on rubber. Abrasion test results showed that the nano Titanium oxide particles could enhance the abrasion resistance of Styrene Butadiene rubber matrix due to appropriate properties of nano Titanium oxide particles. © 2006-2014 Asian Research Publishing Network (ARPN).
