Abstract

Spatial distribution of carbon black particles (CB) in rubbery matrix was studied by transmission electron microtomography (TEMT). The three-dimensional (3D) digital images obtained by TEMT were subjected to 3D image analyses: One is 3D particle analysis, which provides the size distribution of the aggregates of the CB. The other is a Monte Carlo simulation that packs primary CB particles (into the CB region) as much as possible. The Monte Carlo simulation provides the possible model of the positions of the primary particles of the CB. The both methods gave the difference of the spatial distribution of the CB between the two types of rubber materials with different mixing conditions and the same composition.
