Heat Aging

ASTM D573

Summary

The accelerated aging test method evaluates the changes in physical properties of vulcanized rubber when exposed to elevated temperatures. It measures and assesses the change in physical & chemical properties.

Test Details

Oxidative and thermal aging can have some adverse effects on rubber products over time, causing them to deteriorate beyond a functional state. The accelerated aging test ensures that you can predict its performance in a given application. The testing is performed in air at a specified temperature and over a specific time period with properties measured prior to and then after the high temperature exposure.
