      This paper reports the development of nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR) nanocomposite toughened by the combination of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and CuFe$_2$O$_4$ nanoparticles (NPs). CuFe$_2$O$_4$ NPs synthesized by sol–gel auto-combustion route. Response surface methodology was applied for optimization and modelling of the tensile strength and elongationof NBR/PVC/CuFe$_2$O$_4$ nanocomposite. By using XRD, SEM, EDX and VSM, we characterized CuFe$_2$O$_4$ NPs and the optimized NBR/PVC/CuFe$_2$O$_4$ nanocomposite, and investigated the mechanical properties of NBR/PVC/CuFe$_2$O$_4$ nanocomposite. Results showed that the surface cracking of NBR decreased as the PVC and CuFe$_2$O$_4$ content increased,which leads to better mechanical properties of NBR.
