dc.description.abstractEthylene-propylene-diene rubber (EPDM) is a elastomer widely used in common industrial applications. EPDM can be shaped into sheets and employed as isolating material for roofing systems. In this study, scraps of EPDM from commercial, industrial and residential roofing systems were treated by combined thermo-mechanical and microwave devulcanization processes including peroxide of benzoyl (BPO). The devulcanized EPDM (Dev-EPDM) was characterized by cross-link density, Horikx plot, sol fraction content, SEM and TGA analysis. In order to assess the effect of the different factors implied (type of devulcanization process, temperature and amount of BPO), the Fractional Factorial Design (FFD) method has been applied. The obtained results show that, when thermo-mechanical and microwave methods are combined, produce an intense devulcanization effect. It was also found that the presence of BPO has significative influence in the devulcanization and that the effect of the temperature is related to the amount of BPO
