This research is based on a study of the parameters affecting the adhesion of styrene–butadiene rubber (Solprene 1204) and polyisoprene (Natsyn 2200) to monofilament brass-plated steel wire. Investigations are concentrated on the influence of compounding ingredients and coupling agents on the adhesion between the rubber and wire using H-shape specimens. X-Ray Photo Electron Spectroscopy (ESCA) and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) techniques have been used to identify residues on the wire surface and to interpret the chemical and physical roles of carbon black and silica on the mechanism of bonding rubber to brass-plated wire.
