Samenvatting

Cross-linking of rubbers is crucial as it provides good elasticity and high strength. Unfortunately, cross-linking also prevents melt reprocessability, making it very difficult to recycle cross-linked rubber products, at least in a cradle to cradle context. The thesis describes the development of recyclable rubber products via thermoreversible cross-linking, particularly via Diels-Alder chemistry in order to obtain materials that combine the material properties of a permanently cross-linked rubber at service conditions with the melt (re)processability of a non-cross-linked rubber.
