Waste fibers from the recycling tire process with a different percentage of addition (0, 2.5, 5, 7.5, 10, 12.5) were mixed to increase tensile strength, tear resistance, and bending resistance with natural rubber NR. The effect of short fiber on composite mechanical properties was investigated. Despite substantial research on the mechanical characteristics of rubber reinforced with waste fiber, this work focused on identifying precursory physical mechanisms that are responsible for fracture behavior during tests and structural monitoring. The findings reveal that milling and vulcanization conditions have a significant role in enhancing mechanical characteristics. The waste fibers and natural rubber provide strong interfacial adhesion during two rolls of milling and vulcanization at 140°C. Waste fibers may boost the tensile strength of a composite material by up to 7.5% of waste fiber, with a slight decrease at 10% and 12.5%. The flexing findings showed that adding fiber to the recipes improved it by up to 7.5% before gradually degrading, and it is obvious that recipes' tear resistance improves in comparison to basic recipe. The discoveries have the potential to increase the tensile strength, tear resistance, and flexing resistance of industrially manufactured rubber conveyor belts, which are important physical properties in engineering applications.
