Comparative Assessment of stabilised Polybutadiene Binder under Accelerated Ageing

ABSTRACT Polybutadiene elastomers are versatile materials, being employed at several applications from rocket propellant binder to adhesives and sealants. The elastomers derived from hydroxyl-terminated polybutadiene are usually stabilised with antioxidants to prevent degradation. In this study, a comparative assessment among 2,2’-methylene-bis (4-methyl-6-tert-butylphenol) (AO2246), 2,6-di-tert-butyl-4-methylphenol (BHT), p-phenylenediamine (pPDA), and triphenylphosphine (TPP) regarding stabilisation of hydroxyl-terminated polybutadiene binder under accelerated ageing (six months at 65 °C)...
