The availability of the coupling agent bis (3-triethoxysilylpropyl)-tetrasulfide (TESPT) has provided an opportunity for enhancing the reinforcing capabilities of precipitated amorphous white silica in rubber. Styrene-butadiene rubber, synthetic polyisoprene rubber (IR), acrylonitrile-butadiene rubber, and natural rubber (NR) containing the same loading of a precipitated silica filler were prepared. The silica surface was pretreated with TESPT, which is a sulfur-bearing bifunctional organosilane to chemically bond silica to the rubber. The rubber compounds were subsequently cured by reacting the tetrasulfane groups of TESPT with double bonds in the rubber chains and the cure was optimized by adding sulfenamide accelerator and zinc oxide. The IR and NR needed more accelerators for curing. Surprisingly, there was no obvious correlation between the internal double bond content and the accelerator requirement for the optimum cure of the rubbers. Using the TESPT pretreated silanized silica was a very efficient method for cross-linking and reinforcing the rubbers. It reduced the use of the chemical curatives significantly while maintaining excellent mechanical properties of the cured rubbers. Moreover, it improved health and safety at work-place, reduced cost, and minimized damage to the environment because less chemical curatives were used. Therefore, TESPT was classified as “green silane” for use in rubber formulations.
