Abstract: Abstract Anisotropy and molecular orientation are well known phenomena in the field of thermoplastics, but only a few studies have described anisotropy in rubber materials. It has been shown that injection molding gives rise to a higher degree of anisotropy than compression molding. The anisotropy in the rubber material was strengthened by carbon black and is presumably due to molecular orientation. This paper describes the anisotropy of injection‐molded ethylene‐propylene‐diene rubbers. The two polymers had …
