ABSTRACT

The effect of carbonization on the processing characteristics of rubber seed shell powder
was studied. Rubber seed shells were carbonized at different temperatures and then ground into fine
powder. The various powders obtained were then characterized by pH, bulk density, moisture content,
iodine adsorption value, yield%, conductivity and loss on ignition. The results show that there
was a significant change in the pH as the heating temperature increases. The bulk density and moisture
content decrease with increasing heating temperature while the iodine adsorption number and
the loss on ignition increase with increasing heating temperature thus showing that carbonization
has a significant influence on the processing characteristics of rubber seed shell
