Abstract This work, conceived as a second step in the development of high-performance damping materials suitable for seismic application, describes the preparation and characterization of complex natural rubber-based composites containing hybrid nano- and conventional fillers. The cluster–cluster aggregation model was used to assess the apparent filler networking energy. The values obtained suggested that the presence of the hybrid nanofiller strengthens the filler networking. The same model was used to understand the mechanisms of energy dissipation. The damping coefficient was found to be in the sought range between 10% and 20% (at 0.5 Hz and high shear strain).
