ABSTRACT: Blend based on acrylonitrile butadiene rubber and ethylene propylene diene monomer rubber as 50NBR/50EPDM loaded with N-326(HAF) and N-774(SRF) carbon black fillers was prepared. The effect of each type of carbon black on the electrical resistivity of rubber blend was studied. The changes of the electrical resistivity of rubber blend during compression and extension were investigated. Based on the shell structure theory, the experimental results were explained from the view that external pressure induces the creation and annihilation of effective conductive paths, leading to the changes in the resistivity of blends.
