Abstract: Fine particles of gamma ferric oxide is prepared by the sol-gel method and characterized by taking XRD. Natural rubber based gamma ferric oxide composites (RFCs) with different ferrite loading are prepared by incorporating ferric oxide into the matrix according to a specific recipe. Cure characteristics and mechanical properties are determined as per ASTM standard. Magnetic studies are carried out using a vibrating sample magnetometer. This study throws light on the processability of rubber composites filled with ceramic fillers like gamma ferric oxide in natural rubber. Magnetic composites with desired magnetic properties are properly designed by tuning filler to matrix ratio.
