In this chapter, a kind of new magnetorheological elastomer (MRE) is developed with the brominated isoprene isobutylene rubber matrix, a high damping property rubber. In order to investigate the performance of the new kind of MRE and find out the difference with the MRE based on a natural rubber matrix, the physical and dynamic mechanical properties of these samples are tested. In addition, the proposed magnetoviscoelasticity parametric model is introduced, and the parameters are identified for this kind of MRE, then the force-displacement curves obtained from model simulation and experimental data are compared with the numerical simulation.
