Because of lower reinforcement effects on physical properties of vulcanizates than carbon black, inorganic fillers such as silica have been used in a rubber industry supplementary. Recently, necessity of inorganic fillers is recognized for development of high performance and high functional vulcanizates. This paper is referred to properties of inorganic fillers and vulcanizates loaded with them and possibilities of development with loading inorganic fillers.
