Mooney Viscosity (MV)
The test methods in this standard measures Mooney Viscosity, the shearing torque resisting rotation of a cylindrical metal disk (or rotor) embedded in rubber within a cylindrical cavity.
The tests in this method define:
- The dimensions of the shearing disk viscometer, test temperatures, and procedures.
- The methods and procedures to be used for measuring the initial rate of rubber vulcanization. This is required when compounded rubber is placed in the Mooney viscometer at a temperature at which vulcanization may occur and the vulcanization reaction produces an increase in torque.
- That the values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only. Note: Viscosity as used in these test methods is not a true viscosity and should be interpreted to mean Mooney viscosity.
