Languages of publication
The aim of this research is to study the effect of the nuclear spectrum that is found in a new synthetic belt manufactured from a rubber composite with water and salt absorbed proprieties suitable for medical, sport and everyday wear. Rubber pastes from Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (NBR), were prepared in the laboratory by mixing different proportions. The hardness, time of swelling, mass and volume for pure NBR were measured, then four mixtures of (PEG-CMC) were added in the form of gels and powders as polymer composites to absorbed water by creating porosities inside the rubber. This model was examined by means of a sodium iodide detector in order to determine the proportion of radiation within the installation material. The results were all within the allowable limits globally.
