     In dependance of the volume concentration of a filler there are two different rupture mechanisms that are realising for dispersion-filled high polymer melts.


     At high deformation rates polymer fluids may loos their ability to flow as long as necessery and can break according to cured rubber long-term durability mechanism. In [1] for the first time the condition of fluid "high polymers" rupture at unixial extention was determined as follows:

/( - *) = cost > 0; > *           (1)

where: - the true break stress, * - the rupture recoverable deformation (Hencky measure), * - the critical recoverable deformation, below which the rupture probability is equal to zero. The rupture of cured high polymers may occur at any value of deformation and thus for them * = 0 [2], but in case of "high polymer melts" rupture * 0 and it does not depend on loading conditions and temperature [1, 3].

Materials and Methods

     On Fig 1-3 there are represented the results of investigation of dispersion-filled "high polymer melts" rupture. In a regime of constant rate of unixial deformation at temperature 293 K series of experiments were carried on the base of 1,2-polybutadien (PB) with MM = 1.8 x 105 and Mw/Mn = 1.3. It contained 84% 1,2-units , its glass temperature was equal to 256 K. As despersed fillers were used shale-ash and radiation-cured up to the glass and then milled 1,2-PB. An average size of particles in both cases was equal to 20 mkm.


     As shown in Fig. 1 the conditions of durability (1) stays the same, but the value * falls linearity with the increase of filler concentration vol and does not depend on type or nature of filler. There is a critical concentration of a filler cr = 25%vol - such, that at > cr  * = 0 (Fig. 2).
     At > cr the filled polymer melts may break at any recoverable deformation, but in such cases the kind of the dependance 
- changeg qualitatively (Fig. 3). As shown in Fig. 3 there are limited maximally achievable rupture stresses and recoverable deformations at unixial  extention for highly-filled polymer melts.
