Blending of elastomer is often used to enhance the performance characteristics of rubber products. Compatibilizer is used for the improvement of interfacial interaction, processability, mechanical & chemical properties of the investigated blends. In this study, the effect of acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) compatibilizer in vulcanizable compositions of mixed acrylonitrile butadiene rubber (NBR) and styrene butadiene rubber (SBR) is investigated. Silica and carbon black improve the properties the obtained blends. The effects of blend ratio on the physico –chemical and mechanical properties such as tensile strength, Hardness and swelling of SBR/NBR blend are studied. Addition of NBR decreases the maximum degree of swelling, and the cross link density. It is argued that the compatible blend 50/50 NBR/SBR with the optimum nano white filler has higher durability of the physico-mechanical properties, than the other blend loaded with carbon black.
