Abstract The effect of both sulfur and peroxide curing on the intercalation and exfoliation process of layered silicate was studied to find a suitable vulcanization package for acrylonitrile butadiene rubber. X-ray diffraction and transmission electron microscopy studies showed that proper selection of a curing package could lead the layered silicates to have excellent dispersion in intercalated form. The curing characteristics, physical properties, dynamic mechanical properties, and thermogravimetric analysis of layered silicate-acrylonitrile butadiene rubber nanocomposites were explored. Finally, the effect of different types of zinc accelerators in sulfur vulcanization process was investigated on the intercalation-exfoliation process of the layered silicates.
