Abstract: The interphase transfer behavior of poly(styrene-co-α-methyl styrene), which is known as a tackifier in rubber industry, is investigated using poly(butadiene) rubber (BR) and poly(styrene-co-butadiene) rubber (SBR). The films of pure rubbers and the blends with the tackifier were prepared by a solution-cast method using toluene as a solvent. Two sheets composed of different rubbers, in which the tackifier was mixed at least in one rubber sheet, were piled together and annealed beyond the glass transition temperature Tg of the tackifier. The transfer phenomenon of the tackifier between the sheets was evaluated by the peak shift in the tensile loss modulus E" curve, ascribed to Tg of the rubbers, which was measured by the dynamic mechanical analysis. Moreover, crystallization temperature of BR was also employed as a measure of the transfer, because the tackifier retards the crystallization of BR. It is found that the tackifier moves from one rubber to another during annealing procedure to reduce severe localization. When the content is the same in each rubber, the tackifier immigrates from BR to SBR, suggesting a better miscibility with SBR. This behavior is attributed to the small difference in the solubility parameter between SBR and the tackifier as compared to that between BR and the tackifier.
