Abstract: Abstract Anisotropy and molecular orientation are well‐known phenomena in the field of thermoplastics. In the case of rubber materials only a few studies have described anisotropy. Injection molding has been shown to give rise to higher anisotropy than compression molding. The anisotropy in the rubber material is assumed to be due to molecular orientation and is strengthened by carbon black. In order to understand the mechanism of anisotropy in rubber materials, an extensive study has been performed. In this …
