Abstract : Generally, SBR and NBR are widely used in industrial as well as in automobile applications. The main aim of this research is to determine the mechanical properties and their behavior of SBR (Styrene Butadiene Rubber) and NBR (Nitrile Butadiene Rubber) blends mixed with silicon carbide (SiC – as filler) in different compositions. SBR and NBR sheets, and SiC powder are bought and the rubbers are mixed to form blends in order to enhance the properties. Mechanical properties such as tensile, tear, abrasion and resilience tests were conducted according to ASTM standards. Also, hardness was also measured, and properties of all samples were compared. Graphs were drawn to compare the results obtained. Enhancement in properties were obtained and noted
