Mechanical and thermal properties of devulcanized rubber (DR)/polypropylene (PP)/ethylene propylene diene monomer blends (EPDM) were studied at various concentrations of dicumyl peroxide (DCP) and gamma radiation doses. The blends showed improved mechanical properties for vulcanized sample. The coupling of DR/PP/EPDM with different proportions of DCP was investigated by X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy techniques. Evaluation of the developed blends, unirradiated and gamma irradiated, was carried out using elastic modulus, tensile strength, elongation at break, thermogravimetric analysis, kinetic analysis, and DSC measurements. © 2014 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
