In this study, waste tire rubber (WTR) was successfully converted into magnetorheological (MR) elastomer via high-pressure and high-temperature reclamation. The physical and rheological properties of WTR based MR elastomers were assessed for performance. The revulcanization process was at the absence of magnetic fields. Thus, the magnetizable particles were allowed to distribute randomly. To confirm the particle dispersion in the MR elastomer matrix, an observation by scanning electron microscopy was used. The magnetization saturation and other magnetic properties were obtained through vibrating sample magnetometer. Rheological properties including MR effect were examined under oscillatory loadings in the absence and presence of magnetic fields using rotational rheometer. The WTR based MR elastomer exhibited tunable intrinsic properties under presentation of magnetic fields. The storage and loss modulus, along with the loss factor, changed with increases in frequency and during magnetization. Interestingly, a Payne effect phenomenon was seen in all samples during dynamic swept strain testing. The Payne effect was significantly increased with incremental increases in the magnetic field. This phenomenon was interpreted as the process of formation–destruction–reformation undergone by the internal network chains in the MR elastomers.
