Article Title: Potential of Carbonized Bagasse Filler in Rubber Products
by John .O. Osarenmwinda and Samuel. I. Abode

The potential of carbonized bagasse (waste from sugar cane) as filler in rubber products have been investigated. The products were evaluated for Tensile strength, Compression test, Abrasion resistance, Hardness and Elongation at break. Results shows that as the filler loading increased the tensile strength, abrasion resistance, Hardness properties improved. It was also observed that decrease in filler loading enhanced the Elongation at break and compression set properties. The possibility of utilizing the low cost bagasse as an alternative filler material in natural rubber have been achieved in the work.
Keywords: bagasse, filler, hardness, tensile strength, rubber products
