In this work orientation effects in rubber materials have been studied by X-ray scattering measurements. The rubber materials were made by injection moulding and were anisotropic as judged from mechanical and swelling measurements. In X-ray diffractograms it was possible to detect preferred orientation of both rubber molecules and zinc oxide. It may also be concluded that zinc oxide acts as an indicator of macromolecular orientation in an anisotropic rubber material.
